For todays tutorial I have moved to some of the newest dies from Spellbinders and these are from Stacey Caron Designs. They are part of her Art Deco Collection and these are Astoria
Everyone of these dies is completely up my street as I simply love large and intricate dies that you can really get your imagination working with and I have enjoyed playing with them

With die # 7 cut two white panels to make the base card
With #5 and #3 cut one of each in white
(Die #1 is always the smallest)
With the two largest panels score one of them along the long side about half an inch down
Keeping both pieces flat add glue along this scored part and attach the other card to the strip making sure that the shape of the card is level. Set aside as this is the base
With each of the dies to the Decorative Elements cut one of each in your chosen color.
Add the largest colored piece to the base card with foam tape in between, being careful to match the shapes together
Layer each of the colored panels onto the corresponding white one with foam tape in between the layers
Wrap some white ribbon around the middle sized panel looping it through the fancy edges
Build up the layers now onto the base card and stamp and heat emboss your sentiment
Add in a small bow and glue a diamante embellishment over the knot.
Arrange the floral display in a pleasing way.
Sprinkle the flower with glitter for added sparkle
Thursdays YouTube Tutorial will feature another card made with this Art Deco Collection
More tomorrow ...
