Cards made from the Beautiful Papers CD

You can find the Beautiful Papers CD HERE

The dies on the left hand card is from Memory Box
and they are called

The Kraft base card is from Anna Marie
and the frilly base card is from my local craft shop

The Vintage Christmas Papers on the CD also include the topper shapes and
a co-ordinating alpha set too :)

Check out my earlier post HERE that shows in more detail the papers on the CD

In the card below again I've used papers from the CD,
the CD also includes the 2 picture slides but not the butterfly stamp

Double Layer Embossed Card Tutorial

I have a gorgeous NEW CD called Embossed De-lites
The CD is based around 4 colours of pink. lilac, cream & duck egg blue.
Each of the 4 kits have digitally embossed design square card panels
as do the majority of the 26 jpeg 12 x 12 papers.
Each colour section also includes 2 to 3 Ready to Print projects created from the kits.
You can mix up the panel designs to give you different fronts to backs/inners


This tutorial is the same technique used for each of the different square panel designs
the only difference is the others don't have a frame.

Here are my worksheets printed 

On the wording worksheet cut just inside the black lines on all sides

I've cut out all my pieces now and corner rounded them too

On the back of the main front piece (the one on the left)
the frame and back sentiment topper I've attached double side foam (DSFT)
pads as I want to raise each piece.

Centralise the front frame over the wording piece

and attach the frame on top of this 

and attach the sentiment topper for the back piece

This part is totally optional becasue you can just as easily have the card opening
normally but I like to have a tent fold card as I plan to put lots of flowers
on and sometimes that can make it top heavy and fall over!
So to get around that I have a tent fold card (fold at top) but I
secure with a piece of ribbon threaded through from front to back.

I've attached some DSFT to the back of the front piece and
a piece either side of the ribbon end on the base card, if
you put DSFT over the ribbon end it adds bulk so I prefer to do it either side.

Attach the back piece in the same way.

and here's the card which I decorated with flowers :)
I decide also for this demo card not to add the frame so you could see what it looks like 

and here's the same card with and without the frame attached
