Let's get started!

Directions:


Choose the  6" x 6" card fronts from the paper pad that you wish to use on your card. Trim them so they will be 1/8 of an inch smaller than the fold out card panel.


Using the border dies decide which ones you want to use where on your card.


Lay the die on top of the card with a piece of white card stock under it, using tape secure them in place.


Run them through the die machine and cut out.


 This is what it will look like. They do not need to cover the length of the card so don’t worry about that part.


Do the same thing with the designer paper. You can cut 2 at one time so you can cover both front and back.

TOP TIP: Be sure to put the fronts of the papers together before cutting if you do the back and front of a panel at once.


With everything cut out you are now ready to glue everything in place.


For the back panel cut the HCD1-7144 Medallion die out of white card stock

Glue this on the back of the back panel then adhere to the card.


Your card is now ready to decorate.


Stamp the flowers and leaves on white card stock with Bamboo Leaves Memento ink.

Color the leaves with Bamboo Leaves and high light the edges with Distress ink Peeled Paint.


Color the flowers with Brilliance Orchid, on the edge highlight with the Walnut Stain


Stamp the Branches and color in, use the Tombow blender pen for small areas.


Cut the frame apart.


Stamp the Doves on white card stock with Encore Metallic Silver ink, apply glue all over them and add the Crystal Clear glitter.


Mist the flowers and leaves with water and shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.


With all the flowers and leaves shaped and dry, you are ready to adhere to the card.


You are ready now to add White Crystal Drops and glitter to all the flowers and leaves.

Absolutely stunning. I'm new to HC and only have the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit and just yesterday got my 4 die sets for making the foldout cards. I am a die fanatic since my arthritic hands can't do a lot of fussy cutting and I have to say, I am VERY impressed with the design, style and quality of HC products. Impressive!!! Love your project and hope to use ideas from your post. Tutorials are wonderful, especially videos since I'm a visual learner. Thank You and have a wonderful day!!!

When you use the border dies, are you cutting a whole separate piece of white paper that will then adhere to the card along with a layer of cardstock? Also, what size paper are you using in the 4th frame? Is it more than 17"?

TRACY Heartfelt Creations
Hi Pamela, The fourth frame (with looking at the way the dies are placed) looks like a 12" length. Some of the designers leave the entire piece of white card stock with the edge, but often they lay the cutting edge below the decorative edge and adhere the border to the card using the half to three quarters of an inch left beneath. It is really a personal preference. We hope that helps!
