Tutorial - Spellbinder Nestabilities Dahlia Easel Card

Hi Annette here with a tutorial for making a creation, (finally got it done Alicia), using the Spellbinder Nestabilities Dahlia to make an Easel Card.

First choose your papers and Spellbinder

Cut three of the largest Nestie in White card and choice of bottom layer and two of the second largest nestie for the top layer

After cutting match the designer paper shape to the white cardstock (they are not symetrical as I discovered the first time I made a blossom easel card) as you can see in the left of the photo you can see white edges

I the turn the shapes over and mark them with pencil so I can match up much easier later
I have used X-Press It Double sided High Tack Tape, now place on the top side of the white card that is going to have the designer paper stuck to it, when placing make sure you have it in the right place as once stuck it is stuck!
You now need to score the centre of one of the Dahlia making sure your mark is matching the Dahlia you are going to stick to.
Turn over and use the Sticky tape on the top half of the Dahlia that matches the back of the front of the card (next photo)
Then stick the second layer onto the Dahlia that is to have the image on
You then need to score the back as shown so you can stick the joining piece to the base
Now I don't stick the second layer on the base if I am using brads, to use as stop for the easel, work out where the brads need to be, place them, then stick the second layer down on the base, I have also kindyglitzed around the edges. (As you can see started added embellishments and then remembered I hadn't taken a photo lol)

Next add your image and I have chosen to use the Gorgeous Angelica Heart Socks

A closer look at Angelica, popped her hair band up (a little tip I try and colour the pop up stickers with the colour I am using so they don't stand out). Special effects on her hearts (on the head band), ear rings, those gorgeous eyes, bracelet, handbag and cute boots. Used Spicas Lavender and lilac for the headband and hearts and cardigan

Hope I have made sense, if anything is not clear please ask.

Hair - E31, E33, E35, E53
Clothes - V01, V12, V15, V17
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Spicas - Lavender and Lilac

Thank you for visiting, happy crafting, take careX:)
