Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Romantic Rose

Hi Everybody,

Todays pretty blue card is created with the romantic Rose from Spellbinders and it makes the loveliest of cards for all your female friends. I have created mine in two shades of pastel blue but it would look good in any colour that you choose.

It is a simple layered card ... quick and easy to put together for any occasion.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
From die  #3 cut two panels to make the base card from pale blue card (die #1 is always the smallest)
Take one of these panels and score and fold  it  on the short side by about an inch. Add glue to the folded edge and glue the two together along this edge only. 
This will create an  "A"  frame leaving the rest of the card open for it to stand  ... as your base card. 
Make sure that the correct side of the card is on the outside
From #2 and some darker blue card I have cut one panel and from the same base card and die #1 I have cut another smaller panel
Layer the two together with foam pads between the layers and wrap with ribbon before adding to the base card
Have a dry run with flowers and bows to see where you like them and when you are happy with the arrangement glue them in place.

 I use a hot glue gun but be careful as they get very hot and will burn your skin if you drop the glue onto it ... How do I know this ????

Heat emboss your sentiment and cut with the oval and add with foam pads to the front of the card.
Glitter the flowers and decorate with pearls for a really pretty effect to your designs.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  15. Lovely card as usual Christina, I realy like the romantic rose, oh dear another die to treat myself too,thanks Ann

  16. Hi Christina,
    What a beautiful card. I love the die set you used (another for my wish list lol). The two-tone blue is very effective. I can certainly attest to how hot the glue gun gets, my thumb is still healing up from the dollop of hot glue that landed on it instead of the card a couple of weeks ago lol.

  17. Hi christina, a gorgeous card today right up my street going to get that die I love it.
    Kind regards

  19. Good Morning Christina :) Beautiful, Sweet, Feminine Card this morning! Absolutely Love it! Thank you for the wonderful tutorial and introducing this die. I had not seen this one before that I recall. Enjoy a most lovely day. Big Hugs.

  20. Hi Christina
    A lovely card today. I'm not to sure how the base was put together though as on the tutorial I originally saw you attached the two pieces together using a piece of card folded over and glued the two base pieces onto that.

    1. I have amended the instructions to tell you exactly how to make this base card. The other tutorial shows you yet another way to put a card together but the method on the card above is easier and doesn't require the hinge mechanism

  21. Another card to drool over! I think this type of card is one of the nicest that you can give. Thank you Dorothy

  22. Great looking card....I love the fancy background and the placement of the flowers...tfs
    well done Christina

  23. LOVE this!! All of the bits and bobs added to it are fantabulous!!! TFS!

  24. Beautifully, the bow, the flowers, the ribbon , and the dies make a stunning card. Thank you for the tutorials. ~blessings

  25. Good morning Christina, a lovely card today. I think I have the die for this card, if not a similar one so I will give it a try. Mother's birthday is in February and this looks just perfect. Thanks for the tutorial. Dianne Crowe

  26. Love this card. The frilly-ness of the dies, the colors you chose, the additions of ribbon, flowers, and especially the pearls all come together to make a beautiful card.

  27. Beautiful card Christina and thank you for the tutorial.

  28. Truly beautiful card Christina. Just love the dies you've chosen. Thank you for the tutorial - you do spoil us!

  35. Hi have just found your blog. A big thank you for all the information you provide for each card. I have made some cards but never quiet know what products to use. So buy dies and stuff and then don't really know how to get the most from them. So have a random selection of stuff. So thank you for giving me guidance on what to buy and ideas how to use them.
