Tuesday Tutorial - Elegant Ovals

Hi Everybody,

Today I have used several older dies and worked them all together. 
I have  used  a 5x7 background along with some ovals and vines to create a really pretty card that I hope you will like.
Spellbinders Supplies:

Other Supplies:
With die #7 from Matting Basics A create a hinged card
With #3 from Exquisite Labels 11 cut one panel in white
(Die #1 is always the smallest)
Using the largest die we are going to create frames from Elegant Ovals
 so with =4 cut once in white for the base layer
With #4 and 3 cut the frame in white and
With dies  #4  and #2 cut another in white and keep the extra centre piece

Add foam pads to the back of these trimming them to fit if needed so that they don't show at the front of the frame
Cut and emboss with pale green card as many vines as you would like to add to your floral display
Place all the layers on top of each other with the wider frame in the middle.
Flat glue into the centre the piece that was extra centre piece
Stamp and emboss a sentiment onto  the smallest die # 1 and add this to the top of the centre oval 
Fill this bottom part  with flowers and vines

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
