As promised here is a tutorial on how I have made this hinged card using the lovely Spellbinders die Heirloom Oval. I love the way you can layer these dies to make lots of different finishes.
Here is the card:
To make the card
Fold a piece of cardstock in half to fit the die – 12″ x 5″
Lay the outer die slightly over the edge of the fold and tape in place prior to putting through your die cutting machine. I used my Scorpal to try and get it straight. This will create your hinge.
To decorate the outside layers:
Cut a piece of cream cardstock using the inner, patterned and inner edge dies.
Cut a piece of contrasting colour using the inner and outer edges. To create this I have placed all three dies together and taped them.
I then removed the inner patterned die to leave the outer edges and then die cut the coloured back.
I then layered the cream patterned piece over the coloured background die cut.
I put foam tape on the back of this piece and then adhered to the base card.
I decorated the card by cutting the centre die out in the coloured card and after cutting in half I have placed them in the middle of the card.
I then decorated with flowers made from the Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisy set and finished with a tag from the Spellbinders Fancy Labels One.

Thank you Evelyn. I am so sorry I have not been able to comment on your lovely cards but I have not been too well and also now really busy with my shop. But I hope you are keeping well.
Very pretty card, I love this idea!
