Tuesday Tutorial - Oval Regalia and Ice Cream Colours

Hi Everybody,

For my card today I chose all the palest colours I had in my "Stash" and they all remind me of ice cream. I really like the way this one came together and it was very easy to do. I hope you like it and will think about this colour combo for your own cards. The links to all the products are at the bottom of the page
Spellbinders Supplies:
  • Matting Basics A & B
  • Oval Regalia
  • Foliage
  • Romantic Vines
  • Horsehair embossing folder
Other Supplies:
  • Flowers
  • Ribbons
  • Glitter
  • Card
  • Flourishes
With die #7 from Matting Basics A cut two panels in cream card and Create A Hinged Card
With #7 from Matting Basics B cut one more in cream  and two more in pale pink and turquoise
(Remember that die #1 is always the smallest)
Leave the pink panel complete as this is the under layer
With the cream and turquoise panels cut out Oval Regalia and then use your embossing folder to add texture to the negative piece from the turquoise layer
Cut a shape in cream with die #3 from Oval Regalia
Stamp and heat emboss a sentiment and layer it onto the pink card leaving a small border around the edge
Add foam pads around the negative turquoise panel and add it carefully to the top of the pink card Wrap with ribbon before adding these to the base card
Flat glue the oval die cut in cream to the space and add the smaller cream die cut on top  with foam pads. Add foam pads to the back of the layered sentiment and add to the oval
Choose pale pink, cream and turquoise flowers to compliment the card and add in foliage and flourishes as you like them
Dot the petals with glue and sprinkle with glitter then add pearls around the display

More tomorrow ...
