Do you have any of the Cut, Fold and Tuck dies in your crafting "Stash"? This one is the Floral Burst from Spellbinders and it has been around for quite some time.
But for me it is time to revisit some of these older dies and put them to good use and for this card I have used several different sets.
I am sure that many of you will have dies that have not seen the light of day for some time too
- S5-113 Floral Burst
- S6-004 5x7 Detailed Scallops
- S5-148 Decorative Label 8
- S5-019 Labels Eight
- S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A
- S6-002 5x7 Matting Basics B
- E3DS-006 Need A Rope embossing folder
- SCP-016 Celebrations
- SCP-007 Luscious Lime
- Diamanté from Want2Scrap
With die #7 from Matting Basics A cut two pieces of white card and Create a Hinged Card
With die #7 from Matting Basics B cut another panel from some patterned paper
(Please remember that die #1 is always the smallest)
Hand cut another layer in plain card to sit in between the die cut ones
Glue the two layers together but don't add to the base card yet
With the largest die from Detained Scallops and Decorative Labels Eight cut one panel in white and add thin foam tape to the back of each
With #5 Labels Eight cut another plain panel in white and dry emboss this
Place small foam pads in strategic places at the back of the shape
Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment onto some parchment that is long enough to wrap around all the layers. I placed mine at an angle for a different look this time
Have a practise run to see how you would like the card to look and when you are happy with it remove the backings from the foam tape and complete.
Finish the card with any embellishments that you have
More tomorrow ...
