Tuesday tutorial - Persian Accents & Motifs

Hi Everybody,

Continuing with the older dies from Spellbinders this week I am featuring another requested set and this one is Persian Accents and Motifs.  
A really pretty group of dies for a lovely intricate look without too much effort on your part. 
Spellbinders Supplies:

Other Supplies:
With die #7 from Matting Basic A cut two pieces of white card to Create A Hinged Card
With two blending pieces of paper add them as shown to your card base and stamp and heat emboss the sentiment of your choice to the bottom right of the card
With the border strip from Persian Accents cut one piece in white and two pieces also in white from the square die #5
With die #4 from the Motifs cut two pieces in Lilac card 
(Please remember that doe #1 is always the smallest)
Add the border strip to cover the join and trim as needed at the top and bottom.
Then layer up the Lilac pieces with foam tape ... off setting them as you add them to the card
Add the two white shapes in the same way and add small pearls to the end of each point
Curl the edges up slightly to look like petals
Add in your floral display to the top of this centrepiece and dot the petals of the flowers with glue that dries clear.
Sprinkle the flowers with glitter for a sparkly effect 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  9. Hi, Christina, what a great card...I love the Persian Accents dies, the border could substitute for lace on any card couldn't it. I think the finished card is adorable...hope the holiday goes well.

  10. Hope you are enjoying the start of your holiday Christina with your family. Such a lovely card. This reminds me of seeing my first video of your's using the Moroccan dies, a pop-out 3 fold card,and WOC flowers. I was absolutely delighted how good my card looked, so I made several. Got the fist I made, out recently and was gutted.I had used a famous glue, not Cosmic, and all the pieces had fallen off and dirty glue marks on the card!Thanks to you I had started using Cosmic shimmer shortly after making those cards and no more problems of the same. Thank you for sharing Christina.
