Tuesday Tutorial - Font One Uppercase

Hi Everybody,

This "Thanks" card is created with the  Font One - Uppercase  set of dies and it is very easy to do. The pictures  will take you through the  steps you can follow to get this look for your self.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
Instructions:

 Fold an A4 piece of  white card in half to create your base and keep  the fold at the top. 
 Use a brightly coloured background and trim it slightly smaller than the base. 
Cut another white layer slightly smaller than the coloured layer and this is the one we will work with
Select the letters that spell out "Thanks" and lay them on the edge of the ruler so that they are level.
 I have the cutting edge facing downwards and I add tape to the back to keep them all together.
This also makes it easier to pick up all the letters at the same time
Place all the taped letter onto the last white layer that you cut... but don't press them down
Make a very feint pencil line where  you would like your word to sit on the card front.
Remove the taped dies  and place the rest of the sentiment  under the line ... where you would like it to sit on your card.
Once you have it stamped in black and clear heat embossed,  add the letters back again to the card and this time press them down and run through your die cutter
Keep the die cut letters for another project but remember to save the little triangle from the die that sits in the letter "A"
I have then erased the pencil line and dry embossed my card with a folder from my "Stash"
Flip the card over and place the foam pads on the back  so that they support the outer edge and also the letters. That will stop them collapsing on the card. 

Then add it to the brightly coloured background leaving that  little border around the edge.
Replace the little triangle to form the letter "A" correctly

Add in some ribbon and a bow and place some enamel dots or gemstones around the card front to finish the look.

Try this idea with other words ... maybe someones name and as long as the word fits on the card front it will look really good.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  15. I really like the simplicity of this card yet it has a dramatic look because the bright orange is set against the white. Love the narrow ribbon and embossing. Another awesome card!
