The first of the two (2) cards is a beautiful Happy Birthday card.
Size your Magnolias to 4-1/2"x7". Copy and paste so
that you have 2 copies. Color as desired. I chose to
color using Copic® Markers.
Using Spellbinders® Shapeabilities Ironwork Accents Dies Border on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock cut one strip running through Big Shot®.
Cut off the front flap of a 5"x7" cardbase by
1-1/4". Adhere the border strip along the 7" edge as shown.
Adhere the 1-1/2" Tear-ific® Tape along the outer edge of the card interior base as shown.
Place on a coffee filter. Apply the Ballerina® Pink Glitter and rub in using your handy-dandy finger tool👆. Tap excess off on to the coffee filter and pour back into jar.
Cut your image to a 3-3/4"x7" rectangle leaving 1/2" at the top and to the right of the image as shown.
Adhere to the cardbase front.
Adhere the 1/8" Olive Satin ribbon all the way around the front panel flap as shown.
Adhere the 1/8" Seafoam Satin ribbon next to the Olive Satin Ribbon as shown.
Fussy cut the forward looking petals of the second image and adhere to the matching blossom using Foam® Tape.
Adhere a piece of 1-1/2" Tear-ific® Tape to a scrap piece of white cardstock. Place on a coffee filter. Apply the Ballerina® Pink Glitter and rub in using your handi-dandy finger tool👆. Tap excess off on to the coffee filter and pour back into jar. Using the Karen B.® Happy Birthday Dies on the glittered strip, run through the Big Shot®.
Adhere to the front of the card using Dimensional® Glue. I chose to place at an angle.
OPTIONAL: I applied about a 4" piece of
1-1/2" Tear-ific® Tape to the backside of the card off centered. Place on a coffee filter. Apply the Ballerina Pink Glitter and rub in using your handi-dandy finger tool👆. Tap excess off on to the coffee filter and pour back into jar.
Adhere a name plaque and a magnolia overlapping part of the glitter strip.
For our second card today I'm creating On your Special Day Wedding Card.
Using #3535J- Wedding Magnolias Digi Stamp Set I sized the Magnolias with rings 4-3/4"x3-1/4" and add the sentiment even with the far left flower about 1/2" from the top flower. Using the bow from #3545J- Paws-itively Digi Stamp Set I sized to 1-5/8"x1-7/8" and placed at the rings and stem. I copied and pasted on the lower half of the page.
Color as desired. I chose to use Copic® Markers. The list of colors are listed above.
Cut the 5"x7" frame using Spellbinders® - Large Die October and a 5-1/4" piece of Hammermill® White coverstock. Roll 3/4 the way of the die on the first pass. Turn the die one quarter of a turn, match the pattern at 7 inches. Roll again 3/4 the way of the die.
Using a Diamond Latice® Embossing Folder and
Hammermill White Coverstock. Roll through Sizzix®.
Cut to 4"x6" to fit inside the frame die cut. Adhere.
Fussy cut the main image and sentiment leaving about 1/4" around the image as shown.
Cut 8 single strands of pearls 7" long. Using Dimensional® Glue adhere pearls to the edge of the embossed panel and again to the outside.
Adhere the white panel on to the 5"x7" Ballerina Pink® cardstock.
Adhere the Magnolia Image using Foam® Tape, centered on the card front.
Adhere pearls around the sentiment using Dimensional® Glue. Ahere the card front to a 5"x7" white cardbase with fold at the top.
OPTIONAL: I arranged a strip of Ballerina Pink®, a strip of a pale green and a name plaque centered on the backside to finish my card.
