Santoro Mirabelle - Singing in the Rain card tutorial

This card has been made with the beautiful new Santoro A4 and 6x6 papers from Trimcraft and I've added lots of inking and glitteraround the edgWeddinges of the paper and diecuts.

To make this card you will need:
Dovecraft 6x6 Kraft card
Santoro Mirabelle A4 paper pad (SNPAD012)
Santoro Mirabelle 6x6 paper pad (SNPAD013)
Santoro Mirabelle Glitter Dots
Trimcraft First Edition dies  - Wildlife
Trimcraft First Edition dies  - Weather
Trimcraft First Edition dies  - Border
Trimcraft First Edition dies  - Wedding
Dovecraft Glitter Glue - Crystal
Dovecraft Premium Pigment ink pad - Cocoa Brown
Dovecraft Crafters Glue
Dovecraft Foam Tape
double sided tape
3D foam squares
white card
die cutting machine

 How to make it:
 1. Lightly distress the front edges of a 6x6 kraft card and add ink. Cut a piece of pink spotty paper measuring 14.5cm x 14.5cm and a piece of bird cage paper measuring 14cm x 14cm. Distress the edges of both with scissors and add ink.
NB. to get this size of birdcage pattern I have used the A4 paper.

 2. Cut an piece of pink spotty paper to measure 14cm x 5.5cm  and a piece of pink heart paper to measure 13cm x 3.5cm. Distress and ink the edges of both pieces.
NB. To get this size of heart pattern I have used 6x6 paper

 3. Attach these pieces to the card front as shown, using foam tape under the spotty paper.

 4. Die cut 4 clouds - 2 from white card and 2 from music paper. I have used 6x6 paper to get the music pattern small enough for the clouds. Die cut the bird from white card. Ink the edges of all the pieces.

 5. Glue the white clouds to the card, then add the music clouds, offsetting slightly. Glue the bird to the centre the card.

 6. Die cut a white border and ink the edges. Glue to the card below the bird and add glitter dots.

 7. Use the heart die from the Wedding set to cut out 4 hearts (each pas will cut two ) and ink the edges.

 8. Glue to the card as shown. Add Glitter Glue. Add Glitter Glue to the clouds and the border die.
Cut a little butterfly from the inside cover of the 6x6 paper pad. Attach to the card with 3D foam squares.

9. You will find several little embellishments on the inside cover of the paper pad which can be cut out and used on your cards etc.
