On Your Special Day Tutorial

Hi friends.

Here's a quick tutorial for a card for that special person in your life.  I used  some yummy products from the Classy Cars 'n Such Store.   Bev has a wonderful assortment of products and new stuff coming in all the time.



I began with a sheet of white cardstock that was cut to 5 1/2" x 11".
Placing the long edge at the top of your Scor-Buddy,  score it at 2 3/4". 
Flip the paper around and score the other end, again at 2 3/4". 




Fold on the scored lines to create the flaps of the card.



Using Graphic 45's Secret Garden Paper Pad   pull 2 sheets of the lavender printed paper.  This paper pad is gorgeous with its double sided prints on one side and coordinating solid paper on the other side. 
Cut 2 pieces of the print, each 2 1/2" x 5 1/4". 
Cut 2 pieces of the solid, each 2 5/8" x 5 3/8". 
Adhere these two pieces together and place on the front flaps.



Use Spellbinders Nested Oval Medallion Dies to cut the brown and green cardstock medallions.
Place adhesive behind the left half of the brown medallion.  
The roses are from the Justrite Stamper's With Sympathy Stamp Set   and were colored  with Copic Markers in shades of purple to coordinate with the card.



The banner stamp is from Justrite Stamper's Botanical Medallions & Banners and I used the coordinating Spellbinders die from the Vintage Label and Banner Die set.   I first die cut and embossed the die, then stamped the sentiment on top.  I find I get a more precise stamped image this way.



For the interior, I used pattern paper from the Love Letters Paper Pad, cutting it into a 5" square and then matting it with brown cardstock before adhering to the interior.


The roses were added to the medallion with Joy Foam Adhesives  for dimension, then the banner was placed on top with two layers of  Joy Foam Adhesives to help set it apart from the roses.




As you can see, I've mixed stamp sets and dies to create this card, so don't be afraid to mix and match your products to get different looks for your cards.

Thanks for stopping by today.
