Card Tutorial Using Graphic 45 Tag Dies as Card Creators
In Today’s tutorial I’m showing you how to use your Graphic 45 Tag Dies to create beautiful greeting cards. We’ll be pairing them with the Graphic 45 Clock and Leaf flourish dies to make our cards.
The Supply List
- Graphic 45 Deluxe Collectors Edition Botanical Tea
- Graphic 45 Staples Die Tag & Clock Square
- Graphic 45 Staples Die Tag & Flower Large
- Graphic 45 Rose Bouquet Collection
- White Card Stock
- Gold Card Stock
- Paper Trimmer
- 3D Pop Dots
- Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die-cutting and Embossing Machine
- Washi Tape or any other tape to hold the die to the card stock
Die cut your pieces first. This would be the tag for the front of the card, and the clock and leaf embellishments.
Trim 2 pieces of Botanical Tea – 4 1/8 x 3 7/8
Then cut 1 piece of white card stock – 3 7/8 x 3 1/2
Trim 1 piece of white card stock – 5 x 9. Position it horizontally on your score board and score at 4 1/2
Once you’ve folded your card base (the piece in the picture above), you are now ready to position your square tag die to create your card. Run it through your die-cutting machine as you see here.
Apply glue to the tag and adhere to the front of card base.
If you like, you can add piece of satin ribbon to the bottom third of your card.
And now you’re ready to add your inside mats.
Apply your clock die and embellishments to the front of the card.
Use your 3D pop dots to adhere the face of the clock.
Use a hot glue gun or glue to adhere a Graphic 45 Rose on the middle of the clock face.
And that is pretty much it!
