Tuesday Tutorial - Sapphire Dies

Hi Everybody,

It's time to get out those small dies again for a quick and easy card. 
I have used the Basic A set before and so here is another way to put them to good use.  
Having cards that are easy to make is always handy for those times when you need a quick card
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
Fold an A4 piece of card in half along the short sides and then cut in half to produce two portrait card with the fold at the top.
With some pretty paper create a mat that is slightly smaller and leaves a thin border around the edge.
Create another white mat again leaving a small border and emboss this piece in the folder
Cut the label die  and HI in gold.
Cut the oval  and butterfly in patterned paper 
Cut the flowers in two shades of pink and as many as you would like to add
Thread the label with the white ribbon and attach to the embossed layer
Add these to the patterned layer and attach all to the card base
Place the floral oval to the top of the label and arrange the flowers around the edge
Dot the flowers with a pearl in the centre
Glue the butterfly along the body line and attach to the card then add pearls along the body and add a butterfly trail with a pearl flourish
Add small thin foam pads to the back of the Hi and add in the lower corner of the card
Vary the colour scheme for the next card and use any embossing folder that you have in your craft goodies.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
