I promised the instructions on the card I made for the Flourishes Birthday Blog Hop yesterday. Thank you Flourishes for the invitation to be a part of your blog hop!
I would have added the instructions to that post, but a combination of computer problems, some not so great photos, dentist appointments and a rugby parent meeting cut my time short, oh and that thing called work, which involves the not so productive computer.
Lets go going! I mentioned my supply list, Worldwin Paper, Clearsnap ink and Bits of Bling, SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares and MyStik™ and a bit of twine! I used Spellbinders™ LF-168 Grand Large Labels, S4-324 Ribbon Banners and S5-028 Nested Pennants.
I started with a Shaped Card base, made by folding 12×12″ cardstock in half, aligning the fold line just below the cut edge of Grand Large Labels #5 (#1 is the smallest in the set). I cut the shaped card base.
Next I taped the Grand Large Labels #4 to the card base, nesting it inside of the #5 die template. I embossed this in the Grand Calibur™, and that’s how I achieved the second embossed line around the edges.
I cut/embossed with the #3 die template with white and lighter purple paper for the front and side of the card. On the light purple front I stamped with one of the border stamps.
On the white-inside I stamped with one of the sentiments and floral images.
For the banner on the front, I stamped the plaid images and cut/embossed with the ribbon piece from Nested Pennants. For the Ribbon Banners, I curved the stamp to match the curve of the die cut.
I used 3D Foam Squares to mount the Ribbon Banner to the front of the card. I also used them to attach the twine to the Pennant, and then to the card, so they had a dimensional look. I added some bling and it’s done!
And the finished card again,
Thank you again for stopping by! Next week I’m in the Spellbinders Bunny Hop,
I’ll post that schedule next!
