Tuesday Tutorial - Arched Swallowtail

Hi Everybody,

For todays tutorial I am featuring some of the new dies from Becca Feeken.  These are all beautiful and designed as part of Beccas wedding theme. But they can be used for any occasion and give you really intricate cards.
Spellbinders Supplies:

Other Supplies:
Instructions:
With die #7 from Matting Basics A cut two panels and create a hinged card 
With die =7 from Matting Basics B cut one panel in silver card
With #6 from Matting Basics A cut another white panel and emboss in any folder that you have
With dies #3 and #4 cut the largest in silver and the smallest in white card
With the largest Tag from the Deco Swallowtails cut a panel in silver.
Layer all these panels with foam pads in between
Using the Thank you from the words set cut it in black and again in foam and add the two together.

Assemble your card by adding the layers to the base card and then add the tag on top with foam tape
Add in a double white bow and add the glittery centre to cover the knot 
Decorate with white flowers and green leaves and add glitter for extra sparkle

More tomorrow ...

    1. My thoughts exactly. Was first thing I thought of when I first seen this stunning card - that it would make for a beautiful wedding card or even a sympathy card

  10. Morning, Christina,
    Now, don't be shocked that I'm commenting so early in the day...the council are next door changing Pete's windows so there was no way I was going to get even a hint of a lay in today lol.
    I don't have these dies but I did get a charity card pack from Christine E which had some of the die-cuts to use. I was very impressed with the clean cuts and the size of the pieces, so I can see myself getting a set eventually.
    I love what you've done with today's card. The flower arrangement on the side is just perfect and really enhances the design.
