Todays tutorial is a really quick and easy card to make and uses one matting basics and one Decorative labels to complete the look. The thing that makes the card look interesting is the layers, and the height to each of those layers gives depth to the card.
- Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
- Ribbon from Mei Flower
- Glitter from Glitter Magic
- Pink Polka Dot card from AnnaMarie Designs
- Diamante from Want2Scrap
- Foam tape 1mm depth
With #8 from Matting basics B cut two panels in white and create a hinged card
With #3 and #4 dies from Decorative Labels Eight cut one of each in white
(Die #1 is always the smallest)
Hand cut another layer for each of the fancy ones in the color of your choice
I have used pink Polka Dot card
Add foam tape to the back of each of these layers and wrap them with ribbon before adding them to the base card
I stamped my sentiment in silver onto some yellow parchment and added the glue so that it will be hidden by the ribbon
Adding in the foam tape raises each of the layers up and gives depth to the design, so if you haven't tried adding in foam tape/pads or sheets then give it a try and see what a vast difference it makes.
I buy mine from the £££ shop and get three rolls for my £1
I added in a mix of pink and yellow flowers and doted them with glue and sprinkled with glitter
More tomorrow ...
