Scrapbook Studio - Card tutorial

Hi friends, I am still showing you the work I did with the November kit from Scrapbook Studio.  Today I am going to show you how to make some pretty cards in a few simple steps.  First we will be making this card:

 Step one:  Cut a piece of cardstock 21,5cm by 14 cm, fold it in half and score it along the center.
 Step two:  Cut a piece of printed paper slightly smaller than your card front.
Step three:  I pasted a doily to the front of the card.  Cut off the excess from the doily.
Step four:  Tie a piece of matching ribbon around the front of your card.  Make it long enough to enable you to make a bow.  Before you make the bow, thread a piece of twine through a metal heart and tie it to the ribbon at the same place where the knot of the ribbon is.
Step five: Tie the ribbon and the twine into bows.
Step six:  Attach a tag to the front of the card with the edge under the ribbon.  I used a Martha Stewart tag cut in half.
Step seven:  Choose a sentiment.  I used a rub on.  Make sure of your placement before you attach it.
Step eight:  Apply the rub on.  I then attached a glittered chipboard heart to the side of the ribbon.  If you have naked chipboard.  Cut out a heart, paint it white or cream.  When dry apply Glossy accents and then immediately sprinkle white glitter onto the wet glossy accents.  I finished the card by applying a Prima flower onto the heart.

The second card we will be making is the following:

 Step one:  Cut a piece of cardstock 21,5cm by 14 cm, fold it in half and score it along the center.
 Step two:  Cut a piece of printed paper slightly smaller than your card front.
Step three:  Attach a journal tag to the front of the card.  Again I used a Martha Stewart card.
 Step four:  Apply a strip of lace to the front of the card.
Step five:  attach a glittered chipboard heart to the side of the ribbon.  If you have naked chipboard.  Cut out a heart, paint it white or cream.  When dry apply Glossy accents and then immediately sprinkle white glitter onto the wet glossy accents.
Step six:  Layer a star over your chipboard heart.
Step seven:  Finish off your heart embellishment by threading twine through a button and then pasting it to the star.  
Step eight: Work out the placement for your sentiment and apply the rub on.
Step nine:  I added some pearls and it is done.

You can find the November kit at the Scrapbook Studio store.
