Hinged Filigree Card Type 2

If you didn't catch my last post, it is for a young soldier who is in the hospital and his only wish for Christmas is to get a Christmas card from 'anyone'.  I am going to send one.  How about you?

Back to the next hinged card(s) that caught my eye.  You'll see why when you visit Geri's Cards post and go down to the second card.  Below is how I did mine using a different die set, Majestic Labels Twenty-Five (because I loved the die she used in the first card)!!  And........that ribbon does match IRL.
  1. Important to notice to get a good margin around the die cut you need to either use the two dies you see or a Magic Matter around the outside of the center die before you remove it.  I chose the two and will use the outer for another card.  :-)  Because I didn't emboss I decided both sides were great to see and I didn't need to line like in Hinged 1.  


  1. I lined up the top of the die cut on my Scor-Pal and scored as shown with the black line.
  2. Used Gold ATG tape along the center.
  3. Used Glossy Accents applied with my needle nose bottle along the rest of the edges and set aside to dry.
  4. Opened along the crease and rolled the extra tape showing off with my fingers.  Don't forget that dried GA erases with Pentel pencil erasers.
  1.  Stamped Poinsettia and Pine image twice and and cranberry with pine image 3 times on white cardstock with Memento Northern Pine twice.  Painted with twinks, trimmed around, embossed from the back, layered areas with 3D pop-dots on all but envelope image.  Used Glossy Accents and Stickles Buttercup to accent the cranberries and Poinsettia center.  The 6mm heart bead is no longer available.
  2. Stamped sentiment from Sentimental Christmas on third from largest Majestic Labels Twenty-Five die with StazOn Black Cherry.  (I would stamp sentiment before attaching to card).
Thanks so much for stopping by to look and share.  See you again sooner this time I hope!!

Wow Shirley ! This is gorgeous. That is one of my favorite SB dies for a fancy edged card and those stamps you coloured are just STUNNING ! I've never tried doing a card that way,I've always used method #1,but I'm going to try this kind for a change.
