Tuesday Tutorial - Vines of Passion

Hi Everybody,

The title of todays tutorial sounds very intriguing but it simply refers to the heart die that I have used for the centre piece. It is very lacey and I think if makes a really lovely choice for the card just in time for Valentines Day.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:

With #7 from matting basics A cut two panels and create a hinged card
With #7 from matting basics B cut one panel in red
With #6 from matting basics A cut another white panel and dry emboss with any folder that you have 
(Please remember that die #1 is always the smallest)
From #3 of the Fleur de Elegance set cut one large shape in red
With Vines of Passion cut two base hearts in red and then cut both dies together and create two more shapes in white.
 Layer them together with small pieces of foam tape.
Layer the large shape onto the embossed white layer with foam tape, and then place this on top of the red panel. Wrap all these with red ribbon 
Add the two hearts in place on the front so that they overlap each other a little and hang just over the ribbon, and glue the single rose over the knot in the double tied bow
Stamp the sentiment onto a length of parchment that is wide enough to wrap around the layers and heat emboss in silver.
Fold the parchment around the layers so that the sentiment is where you want it to be.
Glue in place so that the all the workings are hidden at the back. 
Add all this to the base card
In opposite corners of the parchment strip place the metal corners and they will tie in the silver embossed word

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. Hi, Christina,
    Wow, I can't believe it's Tuesday seems like only yesterday that you posted the last Tutorial! This is one beautiful card...what a shame I've got no-one to make it for :(. I love the hearts, very pretty and much better than using a plain one - note to self, put heart die on wish list lol. This card is so easy to make, not too many steps before you end up with a masterpiece :)
