Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Labels Thirty Four

Hi Everybody,

Today I am using  Spellbinders Labels Thirty Four  and some of the other pieces that match. It is a set of dies has been around for  quite some time and maybe you already have them in your crafting "Stash"

It makes the most beautiful card and it could be for any occasion. Just by altering the colors and embellishments you can make it suit your recipient. Please remember that the smallest die is always #1 (Number One)

Within this tutorial you will find other links that will take  you to a  Video Tutorial  that is relevant

Spellbinders Supplies:


For the base I have cut my card  free hand to 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches to Create a Hinged Card

From the pink card I have cut a slightly smaller layer

From another  piece of white card that is slightly smaller I have created another layer

On this this layer I am using the Letter Press Technique 

The video will show you how to achieve the look and explain about the different effects within the folder

I have used a very pale pink for my card and a brayer to add the ink to the folder

With the Decorative Labels Thirty Four and using dies # 3 and #4 I have cut panels  in the pink card

And from Labels Thirty Four #5 I have cut one panel in white.

This has then been placed back into the centre of the embossing folder and run through the Calibur

I have stamped and embossed a sentiment and with #3 from the plain Labels I have cut it out.

You can ink through the die if you wish to enhance the sentiment but for my finished card I haven't done this

Foam pads have been added to each of these layers

This will  give some dimension to the card and add more interest

The ribbon has been added to the bottom of the card and then the layers can be added to the base card.

I have added beautiful pale pink and white flowers from  Wild Orchid Crafts   to sit around the sentiment

They are sparkled with Glitter Magic and my  satin ribbon is from Mei Flower   And as a final touch I have added in a white Dove to the top left of the card.

Designers Tip:

Try adding your ink to the opposite side of the folder for a completely different look to your card.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
