Sara Davies Signature Collection Glamour Tutorial
Take a look at what you can create using the fabulous Glamour Collection of dies, embossing folders, card and embellishments. Linda from Crafter’s Companion takes us step by step through the process, creating a superb and utterly glamorous card using this fab new range!
Step 1: Start with an A4 piece of black card and score a fold line at 12.5cm.
Step 2: Emboss the longer edge with the Swirling Vines embossing strip and apply some silver gilding wax to enhance. Add a scattering of gems – but this can be done last.
Step 4: Now some die-cutting! With the black glitter card, cut 4 x Flourishing Corner, 2 x Sassy Shoe, 1 x Charismatic Clutch and 1 x Happy Birthday. Cut 2 x Venetian Mirrors (large frame) 1 in silver glitter card and 1 in black, plus one of the smaller frames in matt silver mirror card.
Step 5: Add the corners to the purple glitter card mount – I’ve used Collall Tacky Glue. Stick the silver glitter frame to the black one leaving to create a drop shadow, then add the matt mirror frame to the centre. This is then added to the centre of the card with Collall 3D Glue Gel for height.
Step 6: Alongside the lovely shoes and bag, add a backing and more sparkle – a girl can never have enough sparkle! Do this in 2 stages, the main shoe with silver glitter card and the inside with silver mirror. Just glue into place and trim with scissors which works well. The same with the bag, although this is just glitter cardstock.
Step 7: We can now add these bits to the frame. Firstly stick the sentiment towards the top – again this is easier if you cut it with stick-it attached, then add the bag by “hanging” from one of the scrolls on the mirror edge with 3D Glue Gel. Place the shoes at the bottom but offset them and add more 3D Glue Gel to the top one so it sits in front.
Step 8: It wouldn’t be complete without a dusting of the fabulous gems!
Step 9: An insert always makes a card special! Use the Swirling Vines corner embossing folder top and bottom to create further interest.
