Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Blooming Collection

Hi Everybody,

For todays card I am once again mixing and matching dies and one is Medallions Three which I have used many times in the past.  
The other is called Blooming Collection and it creates a really pretty open fretwork type of frame.  The bow is created with the DecoFun Bow maker and this is the first ribbon I have tied with it
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:

With die # 8 from the matting basics cut two pieces in white and Create A Hinged Card
Create smaller layers leaving just a small border around the edge in blue and white 
Emboss the smallest white layer in any folder that you have
Add the blue and white layers together
With both parts of Medallions Three cut a layer in blue
Add small foam pads in strategic areas that cannot be seen from the front
Create a smaller white mat that has been embossed to sit under this die cut
Add the die cut to the top of this panel
With Silver Mirror Card cut one layer and again add small foam pads so that they cannot be seen from the front
Add these layers together and wrap ribbon around them threading it under the silver frame
Add to the base card 
Add small foam pads around the die cut circular frame of the die and stamp and heat emboss your sentiment onto the solid part 
Add in a double tied bow and place one single rose in the centre
Dress with more flowers in the top right corner. 
I have used Roses in two sizes, three rosebuds, Gypsophilla and one cherry blossom for my display
All have been dabbed with glue and glittered to make them sparkle

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
