Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Fluer de Elegance

Hi Everybody,

For todays tutorial I thought I would mix several dies together.  All the dies that you may have in your own "Stash" will be so versatile and will work together ... it's only fear that stops you from experimenting, especially if you are new to card making
  But remember that it is only card and paper and if it doesn't work then start again.  
For this card I have mixed old and new dies and the result is very pretty

 Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:

With #7 Matting Basics A and white card cut two and hinge together to form the base card
With #7 Matting Basics B cut another layer in orange Co-ordinations card and with any folder that you have emboss and sand this piece
(Please remember that  #1 is always the smallest die)
With #3 Fleur de Elegance cut  and emboss the largest panel in white
With #2 from the same set cut two in white and stamp and heat emboss one of them 
With =4 from Oval Majesty cut one piece in white
With any oval die that you have cut another panel in orange that will sit in the centre of the oval
Cut all the petal pieces from the Cinch and Go Flowers from the peach Craft Foam and layer them together securing with a large pearl brad
Cut the flourishes in green card
Layer all the pieces together using foam tape in between the layers and adding in the ribbon so that it can be secured on the back.
Add them all to the base card for a neat finish.
Add the smaller sentiment at an opposite angle for a different effect.
Add in the Craft Foam flower and the flourishes to the card and finish with a small bow 

More tomorrow ...

  1. Good Morning Christina :) A VERY PRETTY card this morning! I love it when you mix and match! Brilliant! All dies have one goal and that's to make something pretty out of paper.... so why wouldn't they all play nicely together. Just like when you audition your material in quilting, you can do the same with your dies for card making. Thank you so much for sharing another wonderful tutorial. Have a beautiful creative day. Big Hugs.
