Todays tutorial is using one of the newest die templates that Spellbinders have produced and this is one of several that will create the whole card for you in one pass. The card will be 4 3/8 x 5 1/2 " which is a nice sized card
I have chosen some spotty blue card for mine and I think the effect is very fresh.
With the large outer frame cut one piece in white.
This will now be scored for you in the places you will need to fold the card ... but not just yet !!
From the inner step die cut two pieces in the colour of your choice.
I chose the blue spotty one for mine
With the same card and the square dies cut four pieces.
They are all the same size even though there are two dies.
Cut one of the border strips twice and and as many leaves and flowers as you wish to add to your card.
Cut the words and Ink through the die before removing the card from it.
Glue the step panels in place onto the base card and add the four squares to the centre step parts.
Add the borders along any edges that you prefer.
Press the card base into shape by mountain folding the front score lines on the left, and valley folding the back ones on the right to create the steps.
And your card should look like the picture once you have done that.
I added in the inked words to the top right of my card and I chose to add the mulberry flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts to make it glamorous. The petals have all been sparkled with Glitter Magic and I have tucked in the die cut leaves to the display
You can add in any sentiment that you have as a change and make it for any occasion.
And even with the flowers added this will fit into an envelope so no need to make a box this time !!
More tomorrow ...
