Step by Step Instructions

1 Continuing from part 1 add the largest Spellbinder decorative labels 28 die to a piece of antique gold card & secure it in place with some low tack tape. Repeat the process with the smaller die but this time using the coconut white card.


2 Place the prepared dies through the Grand Calibur machine to cut them & then emboss them using the tan mat & pink embossing plate. For this 1st option for the card keep the die in place & use the spun sugar to distress the edges of the die shape.


3 Remove the die & then go in & distress the edges of the die piece using the squeezed lemon on a piece of cut`n`dry foam. Using this technique will bring out the colours in the lily design.


4 Take the gold dabber & just give a light dab around the edges to finish of the die piece nicely.


5 Add the coloured piece to the gold larger panel using foam tape for added dimension. Alternatively take the die cut white card & emboss the piece using the 3d embossing folder.


6 Take the pink embossing plate & lay it on a work surface. Place the 3D M-Bossabilities folder with the Spellbinders name facing upwards & opened up. Add a die cut white card as directed in the next step & then close the folder & place the Spellbinders raspberry plate over the folder. PLEASE REMEMBER to use this folder combination when using the 3D folders as using the base plate will be too thick & could break your Grand Calibur machine.


7 Make sure you emboss the die piece with the die cut shape covering the main area on the side of the folder as this will miss out most of the labels 4 embossed panel.


Once it`s embossed there will be a very small area of the labels 4 shape so just go in with a ball tool & smooth down the embossed area. This will eliminate it from the card design.


9 Cut a whole 3d panel using the antique gold card & mat it onto a dark card. Take the dusty concord distress stain & just colour the edges of the gold die shape.


10 Once the ink is dry lay the die cut shape over the lily embossed panel so that the card hides the labels 4 embossed shape below.


11 Thread a piece of the pink 2 tone ribbon up through the hole on the largest die cut panel, pass it down & behind the lily panel before repeating the other side.


12 Add foam tape to the reverse of the ribbon panel & stick the die shapes in place before securing the ribbon at the back of the card panel. Add some copper dots of Stickles to the inked areas soon on the UTEE lily.


13 Select a piece of paper from the paper pad. Here the white edging of the paper has been continued by stamping the lily image on the paper using a true white embossing powder.


14 So now you can pull the colours together by using the stamped larger backing paper & then a smaller pink layer & this will frame the embossed piece just perfectly.


15 Because the project has been made working from the topper outwards often the card can become large but this can easily be sorted by placing a piece of A4card on a scoring board & scoring just above the top edge of the backing paper.


16 Fold the scored line over & attach a 2nd piece of card to the tab just created .


17 Stick the large backing paper to the card so that you have the same width border on 3 edges & then trim away any excess on the larger side edge.


18 Add a score line down the left hand side of the lily topper piece & then cover the piece with matching dark card but just up to the score line. Add some DSTape to the tab edge.


19 Add the pink layer of paper before adding the lily embossed piece to the base card. Attach a pink bow with a cameo on the centre of the bow just overlapping the die panel. Be sure to slightly overlap the bow as this will act as a stopper for the card.


20 Now how to make up the lily UTEE piece. Either make it into a necklace or a brooch.


21 Or for a quick & easy fixing take a Creative Expressions cameo setting & link it to the necklace through the hole in the setting.


22 Although the setting won`t be seen a great deal from the top of the necklace on this size stamp, it will make for a neat finish on the reverse of the necklace. Use a 3d glue to add the UTEE lily to the piece.


23 Alternatively add a grungeboard circle to the back of the UTEE lily & stick it in place with some Cosmic Shimmer glue. Add the brooch pin to finish the piece.


24 The necklace can be made using a variety of beads or just with a readymade necklace.


25 To add the necklace to the card cut two neat slits in the top of the hinged card. Have a nice space between the slots to allow the necklace to lay nicely on the card.


26 Attach the necklace through the slots & let the chain dangle down the back of the hinged card.


27 Use the cameo to allow the card panel to be opened & closed easily as this will hide the chain. Giving the gift as part of the card makes it something special.


28 Here is a close up of the back of the hanging necklace & the cameo bow. The colour of the cameo setting used for necklace can also be changed by using a clear ink pad over the cameo before adding embossing powder over the top. Tap away the excess powder before heat setting the embossing powder. So lots of options with the cameo setting.
