Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Fairmont Deco Accent

Hi Everybody,

For todays tutorial I am using the 6x6 Matting Basics along with one of the newer Spellbinders dies and I have done the card in a pretty turquoise and white using only the dies and a little ribbon
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
With die #8 from Matting Basics A cut two pieces of card in white.
Score one of them about half an inch down from the top and add glue along the scored part.
Add the second piece of card to the glued area to create a top folded base card
(Please remember that die #1 is always the smallest)
With die #8 from Matting basics B cut a layer in turquoise 
Use die #5 from the Fairmont Labels to cut another layer in turquoise
Cut one of each of the dies from the Fairmont Deco Accents in white
Glue the large turquoise panel to the base card
Wrap ribbon around the largest panel from the patterned pieces and add foam tape to the back then add to the card
Layer up the smaller turquoise panel with foam pads and add the next panel from the Deco Accents also with foam pads
The foam pads that I use are only 1mm thick but they give a nice dimension to the card
Cut some of your foam pads to fut neatly behind the smallest panel and add that to the centre of the card
Cut the sentiment in turquoise card and double sided adhesive sheet and layer together onto the centre of the card front
Tie a double bow and add to the side of the card front
I secured my bow in place with a hot glue gun

More tomorrow ...
