Card Making Tutorial

I printed and coloured the digital stamp using a combination of both Spectrum Noir Illustrators and Tri-blends.  These were cut out with a narrow white boarder

A piece of cream card had 2 love hearts die cut out down the centre and a piece of acetate was glued behind these. The 2 hearts outline were cut in the blue foam and glued to the inside of the acetate. The foam was also glued in strips around the edge of the white card. 

Hot glue was placed over the foam hearts and the acetate hearts were filled with sequins. Small pieces of mint card was then stuck over the back of the foam.

The scalloped edge die was used to die cut the blue boarder and the blue was also used to create borders for the hearts.
Flower dies were used to create the flowers and a hot glue gun and sculpting tools were used used to give them the dimension these were all adhered to the cream card

Pearl gems were stuck around the heart boarders

And the gnomes were glued onto the bottom of the cream card

This was then glued onto a card base measuring 8 3/4 by 7 Inch. Which had been scored at 3 1/2.
