Verity Rose Tutorial

Now I know it's been a long time since I posted on my blog but this year I have challenged myself to get back to doing posts on a more regular basis. Last year just went past in a blur.....I made lost of cards but just didn't have time to share them with you on here.
So my first post for 2016 is the recent Verity Rose Collection from Crafters Companion.
This card is a bow fronted aperture card. I used one of the 6x6 cards from the pad but you could make it from any 6x6 card.
I have done a step by step tutorial for you to follow so I hope you give it a try.
I have also included a gallery of my other makes.
 It's nice to be back sharing the hobby I love.


You will need
6x6 card blank
Piece of card exactly the same size as the folded card
Piece of Centura Pearl card
Sheet of A4 paper for insert.
Piece of coordinating paper or card for Ribbon strip
Diecut Topper and Flowers
 Tools
Diecutting machine
Verity Rose Doily Die
Verity Rose Ribbon Border

Die’sire Essential scallop and plain circle dies.
Collall All Purpose Glue
Collall 3D glue
Verity Rose Flutterby Embossing Folder
Verity Rose Flutterby Stamp set.
Ink pad
Ribbon

Step 1       

Cut the doily die from the centre of the front of the card.

Attach the die to the inside as this will become the right side of your corner  trims.

 

 
Step 2      

Cut the doily again from Centura  Pearl card.

Also cut a frame for the inside of the aperture with  scalloped and plain circle dies using the Centura pearl card.

( The scallop circle needs to be smaller than the doily and the plain one larger.)
 

Step 3            

Score 1cm from the edge of the back of the card  Fold forwards.

Score 1cm from the LH side of the white card back. Fold forwards.

Step 4

Stick the aperture frame you cut from Centura pearl to the back of the aperture.  Match the scallops if possible.

Step 5     

Quarter the 2 doilys.

Trim  5mm from each side if the white sections.

Stick them together.     

Step 6    


 Stick the white card back in place.

Stick the front of the card to the flap you created to form the bowed front.

Attach the corners.
 
Step 7  


Fold the insert sheet in half.      Trim to size.

Insert the folded edge about an inch into an embossing folder and pass through your machine.

Add the greeting with stamps or a printed verse.

Stick into the back section of the card.

Step 8 


Cut the ribbon die  and  place across the RH bottom corner and trim to size.

Thread the ribbon and add a bow then stick into place.

Add a topper inside the aperture.
Finish decorating the front with pearls and further die cut elements
