Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Botanical Flutters+Tag

Hi Everybody,

Just a quick and easy card for todays tutorial as I am sure that many of you are not in cardmaking mode over the holiday season.... too many others things to be doing.  So this is using just two sets of dies and one embossing folder to create this pretty card for any occasion
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
To create the card base simply fold an A4 sheet of  cream card in half along the short side and then cut in half to give you two cards.
Cut a smaller panel in turquoise to leave a small border around the edge.
Cut another slightly smaller panel in cream and emboss this
Cut the parts of the die that you wish to add to your card.
I used the two butterfly pieces and the bird
Add small foam pads in strategic places to the back of these pieces
Using the loops on the butterfly pieces link them together
Stamp and heat emboss your sentiment and cut one of the tags
Add foam pads to the back of this for dimension
Add the tag to the embossed panel and add in the looped butterfly pieces along the bottom edge.
Place the bird at the top of the tag
Add all this to the turquoise panel and then add to the base card
It creates a card with just a little dimension that will fit into a standard envelope

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. Hi Christina,
    What a pretty card! I think I'm finally all Christmas Carded out for this year so it's nice to see a 'normal' card again.
    I've been busy trying to finally (after almost two years) make my art journal into something other than a blank sketchbook. So far I've done the cover and one inside page is almost done...that's good for me lol. I'm also going to make 2017 the year I try my hand at mixed media. I've always loved seeing the wonderful creations that come out of this area of crafting. I'm not giving up on my cardmaking though, even though I'm never going to be as good as you care, Christina, it's something I know I'm passable at so still really enjoy it :)
