Tuesday Tutorial - Labels Forty

Hi Everybody,

This is a colour that I don't use very much but each time I do I like the card and say to my self ... "Use this more often...." So here we have a 5x7 sized card in pale lemon and white and it is really easy to create.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
With die #7 from Matting Basics A cut two pieces in white and create a base card. Leave to one side
With #7 from Matting Basics B cut another layer in yellow
With #6 from Matting Basics A cut one more layer in white and emboss this piece and add these two layers together
(Please remember that die #1 is always the smallest)
With dies #4 and =5 from Labels Forty cut the layers in yellow
With dies #3 and #4 cut these layers in white and emboss with a different pattern 
Layer each size onto the corresponding plain layer with foam pads between 
 and add them all together on top of the larger layers from the previous step
Wrap all layers with ribbon and add a double bow
Add them all to the base card 
Glue the pretty centre piece onto the knot in the bow

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
