Tuesday Tutorial - Ovals & Rectangles

Hi Everybody,

I thought for todays card I would dress it up with some pretty peach coloured flowers and use some of the older Spellbinders die sets. This card is a 5x7 and I have used the dies that will create a card that size without any measuring from me.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
Create a base card with the largest die #7 from Matting Basics A
Hand cut another layer, with peach patterned card, to leave a really thin border around the edge
Round the corners
With the largest dies from the Ovals and rectangles sets cut panels in plain peach coloured card
Add foam tape to the back of each of these panels
With the ovals cut a scalloped layer in peach.
Stamp and heat emboss a verse onto white card and cut with the oval to match the scalloped one
Layer together with foam pads between the layers
Layer everything together and wrap with ribbon before adding to the card base
Add the oval sentiment to the top 
Choose a selection of flowers in peach and white varying the styles and sizes
Add these to the top right of the card. I use a hot glue gun to add my flowers as I don't want them to fall off the card once given
Dot the flowers with glue and sprinkle with glitter to finish

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  19. Ooh, this is pretty, Christina, a love the colour and the wonderful older dies...note to self, I really must get a set of oval dies...the flowers are delightful as always. I do admire the way that you always manage to match them up to the card design perfectly every time.
