Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Labels 33 and Lonely Hearts

Hi Everybody,

The Lonely Hearts set was one of the dies introduced in the Laced With Love Collection by Spellbinders last year and it comes in two parts.  
Each can be used separately to cover different things that you may wish to do, or they can be coupled together to give you a complete panel to add to your cards
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
With die #8 from matting basics A cut two pieces and  create a hinged card
With #8 from the B set cut one panel in Ivory Card.
Hand cut in gold a panel that will sit between these two
(Please remember that die #1 is always the smallest)
With the inner patterned section of the Lonely Hearts die decide which side of the  Ivory panel you want the pattern to be and then die cut  ... no need to emboss at this stage 
Once cut add it to your folder and then emboss the panel. I used the Happy Birthday folder
Once it has been embossed the card may  have spread a little and you will need to trim it to fit on top of the gold panel that you have
With die =4 cut one panel out in gold and then on some Ivory card draw on the inside of the die to create a smaller panel.
If you are not quite sure what to do the the video  Faux Nesties   will show you 
Add foam pads to the back of the die cut and embossed ivory layer and add it to the gold panel
Wrap both of these with cream ribbon and glue on the back then attach them to the base card with more foam pads  
Add the bow into the centre of the patterned panel as shown and add a pretty centre over the knot
Add the largest of the Label 33 to the plain side of the card front and layer with the smaller panel to leave a small border around the edge.
Vary the side where the patterned panel will be, vary the colour choices, add in different flowers, vary the sentiment and each time the card will be fresh and pleasing for you to send to your recipient

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
