Tuesday Tutorial - Tapestry

Hi Everybody,

Todays tutorial is making this pretty card with the Tapestry background panel from Spellbinders.  Many of you may have this die already in your collection and it makes a very pretty panel for your cards


From #7 Matting basics A cut two panels in white to create the base

From #7 Matting Basics B cut a colored layer

From #6 Matting Basics A cut another layer in white and emboss this panel

Layer these panels together to the base card

From Tapestry cut one panel in white card and trim to fit another colored layer  from #6 Matting Basics B for the front of the card

(The smallest die in any Spellbinders pack is #1)

Spray the white detailed panel with adhesive and sprinkle with fine glitter 

Then add it onto the colored layer with foam tape in the larger areas to cover it

Add more foam tape to the back of these two pieces and wrap the panel with ribbon 

Cut the Spiral Blossom One from felt and coil it to create the flower.

Add ribbon and feathers to the base of the flower before adding it to the card front

Add in the sentiment of your choice to suit the recipient and add both to the card in the position you want them.

A very easy card to make for those moments when you need something quick and pretty

More tomorrow ...

  11. Good Morning Christina :) Oooooo…Oooooo…Oooooo Gorgeous!!! What a morning cup of Beauty!! The timing of this tutorial is perfect for me, as I just purchased the Tapestry die from Amazon about two weeks ago! So… Now I know what to do with it!

  12. Hi Christina
    Another lovely card today. Thanks for the tutorial.

  13. Very pretty turned out fantastic.
    Well done Christina

  14. I like the idea of spraying an intricate pattern like this and glittering, so simple, so obvious, but I had not thought of that. Could you use double sided paper to cut the die out and then glitter than before sticking onto another piece of card?

  15. Just love Tutorial Tuesdays. Gorgeous card and love the feathers with the flower. I should give this a try. Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

  16. Very pretty card, thanks for the tutorial. Dianne
