Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Fleur de Elegance with Diamond Essence

Hi Everybody,

Todays card uses several sets of dies that will all play well together and all are still available to purchase. To make this card a little different I have offset the main focal point and add in my floral display along the other side.

The sunny yellow color is there to remind us that spring is on the way and we can look forward to warmer days and being outside more.
 Spellbinders Supplies:

Other Supplies:
Using die #7 from Matting Baiscs A cut two panels and  create a hinged card  and lay to one side
Using die 7 from Matting Basics B cut another panel in yellow
With die #6 from Matting Basics A cut another white panel and emboss using one side of the folder.
(Please member that die #1 is always the smallest)
Glue the white embossed panel flat onto the yellow one
With die  #3 from Fleur de Elegance cut one panel in yellow
With die #2 cut one panel in white 
Add foam tape to the back of each of these shapes
Place the yellow panel onto the embossed layer from the previous step
Offset them over to the left and then trim the left edge flush with the side of the card
Wrap the ribbon and lace around these layers
With die #4 from Diamond Essence cut one panel in white and emboss it with the other pattern in the folder and add foam tape to the back
Layer this onto the shapes and lace from the previous step
Cut the chosen words from yellow craft foam
Leave the top white shape in tact and add the words to the top of it
Dress the card with beautiful flowers and sprinkle them with glitter
Add little yellow pearls along the top and bottom right hand edges.
The foam tape raises the layers to add interest to the card

Pretty Card for any occasion

More tomorrow ...

  10. Hi, Christina,
    Stunning!! I love the way that Spellbinders dies always play well together and the bright yellow is very spring-like and makes you want to smile. It certainly brightened up my damp and dismal day today :). Now I need to have a look through my dies to see if there is anything amongst them that I can use to see if I can make something similar...or knowing me, something that doesn't look anything like yours lol.
