Make a shaped card with the Arch Medallion die

I have had fun making shaped cards using the Medallion dies 
from the Classic Wedding collection!
Even my hubby came up with some ideas lol looks like the crafting
is rubbing off on him!!! 

Here is a tutorial as promised how to make this card with the Arch Medallion die!
It's a lot easier than it looks, who would have thought a semi circle die
could make such a beautiful shaped card! 

Directions:


Step 1: Cut a 5 1/4" x 5" piece of card and put the card through the die
as in the picture above so the bottom cutting line is at the back of the card 
and wont cut through the card. Leave a section of the fold so it
doesn't cut in the die, this makes the fold for the card.


Step 2: Turn the card upside down and place the card through the die
to cut the bottom of the card.


You will have a card looking like this now.


Step 3: Cut a piece of card larger than the card base but 5 1/4" wide
and cut the top of the card with the die.


Step 4: Put the card you have have just cut through the die
and place the card base over it. Line it all up so the edges match and
shuffle the die so there is a snug fit to the card base on the 
single piece of card. 


Step 5: Remove the card base and die cut the single sheet of card.


Step 6: Die cut two of the decorative arch dies and adhere 
a piece of ribbon across to cover the gap.


Step 7: Adhere to the card base.


Now all you need to do is decorate!


For my card I used the Flowering Dogwood collection and the rings
from the Classic Wedding collection.

This could make a gorgeous christening, baptism or confirmation card too!
Just have fun using your dies, the possibilities are endless!
