This Easy Card Making Idea uses the Sharyn Sowell Rose Bird Topiary die-set, from Spellbinders.  Sharyn Sowell is a very talented licensed designer and I just love her line at Spellbinders!

Supply List

To make the card that I show on this post, you’ll need the following:

The Tutorial

Begin by cutting a piece of white card stock to 9 1/2 by 5 3/4.  You then place your cut piece of card stock, horizontally, on your scoring board. Score right down the middle ( 4 1/4) and fold. This is your card base.

Second, take your grey piece of cardstock and trim it to 5 1/2 by 4 1/2.  You’ll use your art glitter glue or scor-tape to apply this directly at the center of your card base.

Third, cut your pink piece of cardstock to 5 1/4 by 4 1/4.  Add a piece of white trim 2/3 of the way down, using your scor-tape.

With your Spellbinders Platinum 6, you’ll die-cut two pieces of the floral frame.  One piece in grey and the other piece in gold.  You’ll also cut out the sentiment “Love” in grey; and two tag pieces (in grey and white).

Layering your Die-cut Pieces

I love to have the gold cardstock peek-a-boo when layering my die-cut pieces.  I think it gives my cards an elegant effect, and it’s very easy to do.   First you apply art glitter glue (with a fine tip) to the back of your card stock, then slightly off-center you apply your piece on top of the gold die-cut and you’re done!

Once you have prepared your die-cut pieces, you apply the floral frame on the center of your pink card stock. You then apply your tag die-cut on the area where the tag goes (on the frame) with some pop dots.  Use your art glitter glue to add the sentiment “Love” on your tag.

Apply several pieces of pop dots to the back of your pink card stock and place this piece on the center of your card.

Lastly, you apply your embellishments on the upper left corner of your tag, using your glue gun.  And that is it!

I hope that you found this tutorial easy enough to follow, and let me know what you think in the comments section below.  Thank you for stopping by. Until next time!
