A2 Locking Loops

Hi Everybody,

This is another A2 card  that has been made into a tutorial and the pretty pattern  is called Locking Loops.

It is designed by Cindi Echtinaw and I was  delighted yesterday when the lady herself  left me a comment on YouTube saying she liked the card.

What an honor to be noticed by the person who created the die.

So here for you is the short tutorial on how I made this card and it is another one to add to your A2 collection of dies.

The flowers are from  Wild Orchid Crafts  and as always they have been sparkled with fine glitter from Glitter Magic    The Diamante is from Want2Scrap  and the sentiment is one of the Inspirational Sentiments from  Lili of the Valley

Some one asked me which glitter it is that I buy and to be honest I buy loads of it from Glitter Magic when they are at the Craft Shows.

All I asked the assistant for was the one that is like Glamour Dust and she said   "You will need this one ...."  and handed me a pack so I really don't know which one it is  ... I just know I bought five packs and got one free for a fiver ... always a bargain at the craft shows.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial ...  and I have several more in the pipe line with A2 Card Creator dies ... but don't forget to shop around for the best prices to buy your dies.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  3. Beautiful card! You are such an enabler - I now have to buy another die which I didn't know I needed!! x

  4. Lovely card, I must get me the locking loops set so nice trouble is i want all the fancy dies you use but not enough money lol

  5. Another beauty, Christina! So inspiring, I haven't got that particular die, but I have one I can use instead - Spellbinders are so versatile!

  10. Hi Christine,
    Another fantastic card, love the loop die very effective. Great video as well.

  11. Such lovely cards ... thanks so much for the tutorial, always so very helpful. Hugs xxx

  12. Christine I just love your cards and have been a follower for several years. I have one question...I like the embossing to your cards and can't figure how you get the whole card embossed. The majority of the folders are only small 5 1/4 x 7 that has a blank border around it. Could you give embossing folder information at the end of your projects as do the dies. Also any possibility of a video on using these folders to cover the whole card?? lew

  13. A very Happy New year Christina,
    Love this card with the locking loops die, have been tempted to buy this one, now, having seen how good it looks I'll drop a hint for my birthday..
    your cards are always inspirational, thank you so much for sharing with us..xx

  14. Such a lovely card!! Happy New Year! Hugs and blessings!!

  15. Beautiful card love the locking loop die it is very effective
