The finished size of this card is 13 cm x 18 cm. select the card base that is standing in the length from the Fold out card set that also matches the die shape used. Taking two 30 cm x 30 cm Grey brown card stock cut this into lengths of 10.8 cm wide. Do the same with the design paper but cut at 10.3 cm. Using the card base as a guide align the dies on the card stock to cut the lace boarders, then trim to the length of that section of the card. This way I did not make any cutting faults. You could cut the card stock to the length wanted, but I found this wastes a lot of paper and you had to be sure of the finished size as this does not allow for measurement faults. Do the same for the design paper. Taking the structure paste, and mask/stencil, make a textured surface onto the design paper. Put aside to dry.  While drying make the roses from the water color paper. Stamp, color, die cut and shape. Do the same with the leaves but using the gold embossing powder for the stamping. Stamp all the sentiment images. Stamp the oval shape twice as you will want to fussy cut the word ’Love’ and adhere in its place with 3d foam dots. Fussy cut the sentiment that has a butterfly in it, to a butterfly shape.  Die cut the oval and fussy cut the circles. Use the Walnut stain to ink the edges. Cut the wreath out x 7. These will be trimmed and layered to fit behind the sentiment circles and oval as you go. Once the structure paste is dry, distress the edges of the paper then adhere the card stock and design paper to the card base. Apply gesso to the card stock lace boarders and the wreath edges. Adhere the sentiments to the card, trimming the wreath as you go so it will become matting for the sentiments. Arrange and adhere the roses and leaves around the sentiment. Add a few of the clear bubbles in and around the arrangement. If you do not have these bubbles you could replace them with matching beads, half pearls or mini buttons. When all is dry and secure, apply stickles to the lace edges, buckle clasp, butterfly wings and add a few dots near the flower arrangement.




Above, 1st layer...card background base. You might ask, where do I write my message. You can see a blank white space on the left, this is the back of the fold out. So there is more than enough room to write as much as desired.


More eye candy..


Details of the bubble placements, stickle dots and of course more roses....

Instructions: 
The finished size of this card is 17.7 cm x 17 cm. This fold out card is folded onto it self and secured to form a book fold with pockets to hold the tags.


Taking the 30 cm x 30 cm card stock cut strips measuring 17 cm wide. With the design paper cut strips measuring 16.5 cm across. Using the fold out card, align the boarder dies that match the shape of the card to the card stock. Cut the boarder lace into the card stock then trim to the measurement you want top fit the base. The design paper is cut the same way but using the plain boarder cut die.


 Taking the swirly die cut, use this to die cut into the design paper as seen in the photos. 



Adhere all the layers to the card base then adhere the folds down to form the pockets for the tags. Stamp the boarder from the ‘All glammed up’ collection onto the design paper with the gold embossing paper. 


Die cut the heading for the tags. Now trim the sides to form the tag shape. Adhere to the brown card stock then cut so the card stock shows from behind the tag.



Make the bows using once again the ‘All glammed up’ collection. Apply the gold embossing powder to the bow edges and tie ends. 


 Adhere the tie ends and bow to the tags and across the front of the card. 
Do the same to the front inside but adding a strip of brown card stock first to the background. 


Using the word boarder dies cut the words out 4 times. Trim so the letters are all separate. With the clear drying glue tweezers and prick pen, adhere the letters in place. 


Once all the words are in place, it makes it easier to add the letters in layers. You do not have to do this but it does make the card pop more. 


To finish the card add stickles to the cut out swirls by the leaves and to the bow centers. Apply a few stickle dots to the tag headings.

Well that was a mouthful!

  67. WOW... What an interesting card! I studied your photos and read your description to figure out how you achieved the look... At first I thought you mixed silver and gold elements together which was cool but then upon further investigation it turns out the silver uses texture paste and gesso... Ooohhh.... How fun... I've been stashing a ton of mixed media supplies and am inspired to play! Thank you!

I am loving the vintage feel that it gives with the colours you have used & your attention to detail really brings it all nicely together. The way you have added the texture is amazing & it is really effective. Love it!

    You have definitely inspired me, I have pinned to my board & can't wait to follow your tutorial. I just need to get me a few extra items to pull it off. Thank you so much for sharing.
