Todays pretty blue card is created with the romantic Rose from Spellbinders and it makes the loveliest of cards for all your female friends. I have created mine in two shades of pastel blue but it would look good in any colour that you choose.
It is a simple layered card ... quick and easy to put together for any occasion.

From die #3 cut two panels to make the base card from pale blue card (die #1 is always the smallest)
Take one of these panels and score and fold it on the short side by about an inch. Add glue to the folded edge and glue the two together along this edge only.
This will create an "A" frame leaving the rest of the card open for it to stand ... as your base card.
Make sure that the correct side of the card is on the outside
From #2 and some darker blue card I have cut one panel and from the same base card and die #1 I have cut another smaller panel
Layer the two together with foam pads between the layers and wrap with ribbon before adding to the base card
Have a dry run with flowers and bows to see where you like them and when you are happy with the arrangement glue them in place.
I use a hot glue gun but be careful as they get very hot and will burn your skin if you drop the glue onto it ... How do I know this ????
Heat emboss your sentiment and cut with the oval and add with foam pads to the front of the card.
Glitter the flowers and decorate with pearls for a really pretty effect to your designs.
More tomorrow ...
