Quick and Easy Wild Rose Studio Bella!

Card Making, Rubber Stamps and Craft Supplies at Handy Hippo

I am so excited to be doing this post tonight!  In collaboration with Handy Hippo, the online craft store, this is my first step by step card tutorial!
 The idea is, i make a card taking photos at different points and this will give you inspiration and help should you need it!
I am going to show you how to make the above card, so you will need:
6" Scalloped Square Card
Wild Rose Studio Bella With Mum Clear Stamp
Wild Rose Studio 6 x 6 Bella Paper Pad
Pale Pink Ribbon
3 Shades of co-ordinating card stock 
Paper Flowers 

So here goes:

First stamp out the image and colour with promarkers.
Set aside.

Take a piece of the darkest card stock (i used Cherry) and cut to 13.5 cm (5 1/4") square
Take a piece of balloon paper and cut to 13cm square
Stick the 2 together and then to a 6 x 6" scalloped card blank

Next, take the middle shade of card stock and cut to 8cm x 12cm (3 1/4" x 4 1/2") 
Take piece of the plainer paper from the paper pad and cut to 7.5cm x 11.5cm
Mount the 2 together.
Next take a piece of pale pink ribbon and put a strip down the centre and attach at the back
Then stick this to the card, as above.

Next make a bow and attach to the top of the ribbon.
Next, cut the image into a square and mount onto the lightest cardstock
I used an Xcut nesting die here, but cutting with a trimmer or guillotine would work just as well.
Take 3 pale pink paper flowers and place in the bottom left corner, place a gem in the centre of each one
Last step is to add 3 gems to the top right corner.

And here is the finished card! I always try to leave enough room on my cards to add a sentiment and this is usually personalised to the recipient.  In this case i would put the sentiment in the bottom right corner.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and maybe got some inspiration from it!
