Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Naples Medallion

Hi Everybody,

For this tutorial I am using the Naples Medallion and this is a large die set. 
You can make your base cards in this shape or just add it to a card but for this one I am taking my scissors to the shape and cutting it up.
The pictured card is 8x6"  because it is a baby card that will be signed by lots of workmates for their colleague 
Spellbinders Used:
Other Supplies:
Take one sheet of A4 card and fold in half along the short side, and keep the fold at the top to create the base card. 
With the pink card hand cut a panel that is slightly smaller then the base and leaves a small border around the edge
 Emboss this layer with any folder that you have
With the Naples Medallion cut the largest one in white and lay it onto some pink card and faux Nestie cut the pink layer that will sit underneath.  Cut this circle in half
Off set the two halves and add to your base card with foam pads to give some depth
Wrap the panel with ribbon to hide the join. I have used double ribbon for mine with white at the bottom and pink on top
Secure on the back and then add this panel to the base card
I decided to cut this chain circle from the Naples Medallion set and cut this in half and add to the cetnre circles. You can see this in the main photo  
I stamped a sentiment and used the Classic Circles to cut it out and then layered it onto the Scalloped Circle.
 I cut two of the smallest dies from the Naples Medallion and cut them both in half.
With some foam pads I added all four pieces to the back of my sentiment and added it to my card 
I dressed it with glittered flowers and added glitter balls to the centres
Notice the little pink butterfly nestled in with the flowers !!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
