This week we have launched our Fundamentals cardmaking line in the USA. We have been selling this range of product in Australia now for the last 9 months and it has been soooo popular we have had to delay our launch date in the USA. The line has over 100 items of cardstock, rub-ons, die-cuts,chipboard alphabets, trims, transparencies, chipboard accents, felt icons and petite alphabet stickers in 8 colours: pink, blue, white, black, silver, chocolate, gold, silver and kraft.
We've become a little obsessive about cardmaking since its launch last year and have created some beautiful cards such as this one on the left. Over the next few weeks we will showcase some more of this line to inspire and delight you! In the meantime see below for instructions on how to make this:
Required: Fundamentals silver cardstock – 148x210mm, black and light blue cardstock, silver chipboard accents, silver deluxe die-cuts, black chipboard accents, black trims, white rub-ons (flourish)

Also needed: black ink, Cuttlebug or Letterpress embossing template
Step 1: Cut a 14.5 x 10cm piece of card out of the blue cardstock. Cut a slightly larger piece out of the black cardstock.

Step 2: Use embossing template to emboss the blue card if desired.

Step 3: Ink, using the black ink pad, around the edges of the card.

Step 4: Cut and tear a 9 x 8cm shaped heart from your blue embossed cardstock and place a photo under it as shown.

Step 5: Glue the blue card, with photo, onto the black card.

Step 6: Cut a piece of black ribbon and glue at the bottom of the blue/black card ensemble.

Step 7: Place a silver die cut shape to the left hand side with some black ribbon placed underneath as desired.

Step 8: Place an accent tag on top of the die cut.

Step 9: Place a silver die cut flower on top of the tag followed by a black accent butterfly.

Step 10: Rub white rub-ons around the heart as shown.
