Vintage Inspired Baby Card Tutotial/Video - Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi Everyone,

This week for Cheery Lynn Designs I have created a baby card, using a range of Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  This card would certainly look beautiful in pink or blue!  I used the Oval Classic Stacker Series, to form a frame, and dressed it up using ribbon. 
The images are from  NiceCrane Designs, using the Bessie Gutman Pack.  A range of high quality, beautiful images, ready for printing and adding into your creations.  You can also find a huge variety of many other image packs on the NiceCrane Designs website, and follow along with the NiceCrane Designs Blog, with lots of inspiring design team projects. I am doing some design work, as time permits, and having a wonderful time using the images available.
I have completed a full tutorial on how to make this card from start to completion.  Also, for those on a slow internet connection, I have shared the basic instructions on how to form the frame, below.

1. Use a small piece of blu-tac between Oval Classic Stacker Series dies to hold them together.  This stops dies moving and you will achieve an evenly cut frame.

2. Die-cut your frame from chipboard, using the Oval Classic Stacker Series dies.
3. Set aside middle of die-cut to use in a future project.
5. Place a small glue dot on back of cut frame, adhere ribbon and begin to wind around the frame.
6. Continue carefully winding around frame until the whole frame is covered.
7. Affix ribbon in place with another glue dot on back of frame.
8. Die-cut Manon's Wedding Garland twice, cutting between the details as pictured above.

9. Adhere Manon's Wedding Garland to the back of the frame using a strong adhesive.
10. Insert fine lace in the same manner as above, though on the inside of the frame.
11. Use the same shaped Oval Classic Stacker that you created with, to draw around the photograph or image you wish to have featured in the frame. Cut out, and affix to the back of frame.

A simple technique, which looks very striking!
