Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Oval Floral

Hi Everybody,

Another quick and easy card to make today and this uses the beautiful oval die from Spellbinders. I have chosen the lovely combination of lilac and white for my as I always think this is a fresh colour scheme that can be used for so many occasions.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
With white card cut two pieces from die #7 Matting Basics A and Create a Hinged Card
Hand cut a slightly smaller layer in lilac card to leave a narrow border around the edge
Hand cut another white layer that is again slightly smaller than the lilac and emboss this piece to add texture to the layer
(Please remember that die =1 is always the smallest)
With Oval Floral dies #2 & 3 cut three frames and glue them all together for extra strength
Cut the sentiment twice in white and once in Silver glitter card and glue together

Add the embossed layer to the lilac card and wrap with lace and ribbon before adding to the base card
Add the frame in the position you want it and lay the sentiment across the frame.
I have used tiny pieces of foam tape on the outer letters to make it lie evenly across the frame.
Arrange the flowers as you like them and add in a little bow 
Dot the flowers with glue and sprinkle on the glitter.
Allow to dry and then the glitter will lie flat on the petals.
Arrange lilac pearls into the Ovals centre in a random pattern

A card for any occasion ... just alter the sentiment

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
