Tuesday Tutorial - Lavish Vine

Hi Everybody,

For todays card I am using one of the new dies from Spellbinders and this is called Lavish Vine. It is quite a long strip die and it can be added to your cards in lots of different ways. This is a quick short tutorial to make cards that you can keep on hand for those emergency moments.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:

With die #7 from Matting Basics A cut two pieces in white to Create a Hinged Card
With die #7 from Matting Basics B cut a layer in gold card
With die #6 from Matting Basics A cut another layer from the Blissful Paper Pad
(Please remember that die #1 is always the smallest)
Cut the Lavish Vine three times from the Gold Card and glue them together 
Stamp and emboss the sentiment in Gold and cut to fit in between the holding parts of the die cut
Layer all the panels onto the base card and add the Lavish Vine with foam pads place in the solid parts so that they cannot be seen from the front
Add the sentiment so that it is held in place with the vine leaves and add a touch of glue if you prefer.
Dress the card with the flowers and pearls of your choice

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  7. Brilliant card today, Christina. A nice quick one to make as well so you could make up a few with different papers and stamp up a few different sentiments, then when you need a radio in a hurry, just slip the appropriate sentiment the in place and you're good to go :)
