Alrighty then, I promised instructions!  First, here’s the card again:

Beth Pingry card

These are the supplies:

Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Die Cutting Machine, Grand Squares, Ribbon Banners, Labels Twenty, Labels Twenty-Two
JustRite Stampers: Bon Voyage, Greetings from Paris stamp Sets
Want2Scrap: Fleur de Lis Rectangle Nestabling™, turquoise
SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares, MyStik™ Permanent
Copic: BG11, BG15, BG18 Sketch Markers
My Mind’s Eye: So Sophie (Sisters Peaceful Plumb, Brothers & Sisters Gracious Greenery
Inks: Clearsnap Colorbox Black Pigment; Tsukineko Moment Black Tuxedo
Old Book, craft knife, black and red cardstock

1. The black base was cut/embossed with Grand Squares, I folded the cardstock and made sure the fold line laid inside of the cut line of the die template.

2. The striped paper was also cut with Grand Squares.

3. Polka Dot and red papers were cut/embossed with Labels Twenty Two.

4. I stamped the Fleur de Lis onto a book page from an old book. {Note to self – be sure to stamp the Fleur right side up on the print.} Die cut and emboss, using low tack tape to secure the Labels Twenty die template once it is perfectly placed over the stamped image. Color  image with markers.

5. Emboss only with black cardstock and Labels Twenty – the same sized die used in step 4.  Leave the paper inside the die template, secure with low tack tape if desired.  With a sharp craft knife and a cutting mat, (or scissors – I’m not that good) cut around the outer edge of the die template.  This will create a mat for the die cut in Step 4.


6. I stamped the Paris and France onto a blank book page (so it matched the color of the Fleur paper). Then die cut/emboss with Ribbon Banner die template. Again, use low tack tape to secure placement of die template if desired.

7. With the Fleur de Lis Rectangle Nestabling, trim the medium sized piece from the package with scissors, leave it on the plastic backing.  Cut between the ‘stones’ to fit the sides of the red die cut label.  Peel and stick, the Nestabling keeps it shape!

8. With remaining bling from the piece, place in key points along Fleur de Lis stamped image and between Paris and France.

9. Ink the edges of the die cuts with Clearsnap Colorbox Black Pigment ink.

10. Assemble!  I used SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L 3D  Foam Squares and MyStik Permanent adhesive  to attach the layers.

Tips:

  • You can cut multiple die templates at once in the Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine, saves time and effort!
  • Old Book pages really drink up the ink, be prepared to color the image several times.
