Tuesday Tutorial - Swirl Stripe

Hi Everybody,

Today I am going to be using this really pretty panel die from Spellbinders that was designed by Becca Feeken.  It is in two parts and creates a panel that is about 3 x 6" and I have only used the centre part of the set for my card.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
Using  die #7 from Matting Basics A cut two pieces and Create a Hinged card
With  die #7 from Matting Basics B cut another panel in pink
( Die #1 is always the samllest)
Use the centre part of Swirl Stripe and place it in the upper left corner of the pink card and cut.
No need to emboss this piece as you are now going to add it to your embossing folder and run it through the machine
I added some Parchment/Vellum to the back of my patterned area and then added foam tape to the back to support it all
Wrap this panel with lace along the bottom section before adding it to the base card
Cut as many leaves as you would like to add to your creation.
I used Foliage Two for my flourishes but that die is now retired so in the supplies above I have given you an alternative die  for the same effect
Cut the Celebrate word four times in white and once in gold.
Layer them all together with the gold one on the top.
Add the leaves, flourishes and flowers to the right hand side of the card
Add the sentiment along the bottom on top of the lace.
I use a hot glue gun to hold all my additions in place
Sparkle the flowers with some glitter on the petals
Place the pearls around the flowers and onto the patterned piece
Push the Hatpin into the petals as the finishing touch

More tomorrow ... 

Hugs xx
