Camden Town Shelf Card Tutorial

Hello Everyone!
I have been asked by a few people on how to make one of the Concept Cards from the Camden Town Kit, so here is a step by step guide on how to make this card!

You will need the following:
Concept Card
Mirri Card
Embellishments & Pearls
Choose your Concept card base along with your embellishments to use.

Fold your concept card and crease with your bone folder for nice sharp creases to look like this and place the flat card through the slot.

You can if you wish put backing paper on the inside which I have done to make the card look pretty. (remember to cut through the slit at the back!)

To make my Toppers stand I used acetate stands, you can use card too if you wish.

Finally, place your toppers onto the Shelf and decorate as desired!

Hopefully this has helped and you can now make your cards!
Thanks for popping by and would love to read your feedback!
Bye for now!

Hello Everyone!
I have 3 sneaky peeks for you today!! Not long now till BRAMBLY HEDGE is on your screens, 12pm tomorrow on Create & Craft, I can't wait!
My 1st card is made from the Summer Stamp Plate. I have used Die'sire Magic Mirror Die onto So Mod Core'dinations. The backing paper is from the CD and I used my Embossalicious Folder, Flower Power to give it some texture. The Border and Sentiment is from the CD. Added some flowers and a swirl and 2 of the gorgeous Metal Corners from the Embellishment Pack!
Spectrum Noir Colours Used

My next sample is a bit different, decided to decorate a bag!
I popped it through my E-Bosser first using the Embossalicious Paisley Folder. I next decorated it using one of the Card Companions from the Summer CD together with Die'sire Enchanted Spring & Scalloped Tags Die. I used the Large and Small Rose Quilling Flower die, and finished off with an Epiphany Brambly Hedge and some of the gorgeous gems and sparkles in the Embellishment Pack!
My last one for today I made from the gorgeous Domed Aperture Card Kit. So easy to put together and decorated the box with one of the papers in another one of the kits and added some ribbon, card candi and a leaf die which I thought suited the card perfectly!
Added an A6 Insert from the Summer CD!
Thanks so much for popping by, will have more cards to show tomorrow!
