Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Grand Cabinet 3D Card Tutorial

Hello friends - thanks so much for visiting.  To day I am excited to be sharing a card I created using a new Amazing Paper Grace® Collection by Spellbinders called 3D Vignettes - how beautiful are these Dies - and not as hard as they look to assemble - which is great don't you think!  

In Becca's own words; '3D Vignettes is a series of theme dies that can be inserted into what is cut with a Grand Base die to create 3D upright cards that fold down flat to go into an envelope – a collapsible tunnel card!  One of our readers said it right, the cards created are ‘collectibles’ that your family would never dare part with.  Well, I hope so!!  You can see it in action in the 1.5 minute video HERE.  Where these Vignettes are unique, is the ability to die cut or not die cut each and every layer for an ethereal see through dimensional creation.  Collection elements were designed to cut out whole or to be cut out inlaid for inclusion in a Grand Base.  The collection centers around three themes – baby, love and birthday. - Becca Feeken - Amazing Paper Grace

1. Cut.emboss four Grand Cabinet pieces using the Grand Cabinet Outline and Inlay together, along with the Inner Cabinet Outline.
2.Remove the Inner Grand Cabinet Inlay and replace it using the Bride and Groom Insert - cut/emboss this layer.
3. Remove the Bridge and Groom Insert and add the Happily Very After Insert - cut/emboss this layer
4. Carefully trim the tabs off the sides of two of the 'open' Grand Cabinet Frame, using scissors or a paper trimmer - these two are for the front and back of the 3D Vignette.

5. Cut/emboss two (2) Side Panels using both the frame and the insert.  The score lines run vertically. 
6. Fold the scored tabs forward and adhere Strong Tape on each tab - on both Side Panels.
7. Lay the side panel down, tape side up, Lay the first TABLESS frame on the left side of it, making sure the tab is right up next to the frame with no overlap. Peel the backing off the tap and line up - once you are sure they are even, adhere to the frame.
8. Using lemon card stock, cut/emboss the Bride and Groom Insert and the Outline Design together - adhere to the matching layer.
9.  Using lemon card stock, cut/emboss the Happily Every After Insert and the Outline Design together - adhere to the matching layer.
10. Lining up the tab with the slot on the side panel, pull the tab through, noting there is a small slot at the bottom of each tab, gently pull these down to lock the layer into place- the bottom of each frame needs to be lining up.
11. Working from the back to the front, repeat this process in the following order: Bride and Groom Layer, 2 Cabinet Frame layers and the Happily Ever After layer.
13. For the Grand Cabinet front - in the same way as the back, line up the TABLESS frame with panel, adhere the front to the side panel.
14.  For the other side - flip the inserts out of the way - and repeat the process with the other side of the card. Make sure each layer is locked in and straight across the bottom to prevent buckling one the layers are in place.
15. Adhere the front to the card in the same manner as the back, starting with the right side - if everything is in place it will just fall into place perfectly.

16. Cut/emboss twelve each of the Large Flowers and Small Flowers using white card stock, sponging each set with Dandelion ink before removing from the frame.
17. Using the small Stylus Tip and a foam mat, shape each petal.  Secure the two layers using small brads and adhere to the top of the Grand Cabinet using liquid glue.
18. Glue a handmade embellishment to the centre of the flowers.

18. Adhere a double seam binding bow to the bottom left corner of the card using glue, adhering one Die Cut Flower to the centre of the bow,
19. Trim the Swirls Finesse to the desired length and attach each side of the bow.
20. Glue a Dove handmade embellishment to the centre of each side of the Grand Cabinet Frame.
