My featured die templates are:

S5-050 Nursery Time Frameabilities®

LF-251 Grand Big Scalloped Ovals

The first thing that came to mind was a baby announcement in a gate fold card.  The LF-251 Grand Big Scalloped Ovals were a perfect fit for the S5-050 Nursery Time Frameabilities.  It was pretty simple to construct, I layered the Grand Big Scalloped Ovals with Grand Ovals, using My Mind’s Eye Lush papers and cardstock.

The scallops allowed me to measure and fold the card perfectly!

I made a sleeve from the patterned paper, printed on the cut out from the large frame, and adhered the smaller frame to it.

Slide off the sleeve and the card opens.  I inked through the die template to color the embossed ducks and stitching detail.  I cut/embossed the frame in blue cardstock and pieced together a large frame to mat the cream colored frame.  I used the bear die cuts from the blue frame to sit in the bear shaped opening.

I love the peek-a-boo of the bear die cuts. Double sided patterned paper makes this card a delight to open, and the big scallops convey the sweetness of a new baby.  (No, there are no new babies in my house – just a very spoiled fur baby!!)  This card is going to be one of my favorites!

Supplies: Spellbinders Grand Calibur™; LF-251 Grand Big Scalloped Ovals; LF-110 Grand Ovals; S5-050 Nursery Time Frameabilities; SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™, MyStik™ Mounting Squares; Clearsnap Color Box Glacier Ice Ink; My Mind’s Eye Lush™ Blue Patterned Papers; WorldWin Papers Treasures Natural Cardstock; Bazzill Basics Paper Frosted Teal.

Flourishes Birthday Card Tutorial

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 LabelsS4-324 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!
