Rinea - Summer Scene Card Tutorial

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a fun tutorial for Rinea.

I'm going to show you how to make this fun summer card,
using these fabulous foiled papers!

I'm using the "Patriotic Foiled Paper Variety Pack" for this project.

Other materials used:
  • 6 1/2 X 4 1/2 White Card Base;
  • Sizzix Brenda Walton Thinlits Die - Whimsy & Delight;
  • Memory Box Die - Puffy Clouds;
  • Fiskars Border Punch - Grass;
  • Adhesive.

1. I began by pulling out the Patriotic Foiled Paper Variety Packs, in both the 6 X 12 and 4 X 6 sizes. I also pulled out this Sizzix die set that I found in my stash but have not been using. It inspired my Summer Scene card.

2. Then I decided my scene should have a few clouds as well. So I added this Puffy Cloud die from Memory Box. I began by cutting the clouds from the Starstruck Silver Foiled Paper.

3. Here you can see the rest of the die-cutting. I used Ruby Red Starstruck Foiled Paper to cut the flowers, balloon, tag (which I ended up not using), and hearts. I used the Glossy Silver/Gold Foiled Paper to cut the bicycle. Finally, I used the gold side of the Glossy Silver/Gold Foiled Paper to cut the basket and the leaves.

4. Next, I cut a skinny little strip of the Ruby Red Starstruck Foiled Paper
It's almost 1/8" wide by about 5" long. I wrapped it securely around a skewer. 

5. Then I pulled the skewer out, leaving the foiled paper in the perfect coiled shape. 
This is for the string of the balloon.

6. I decided that the Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper made a beautiful sky background. 
So I cut the background at 6 1/4 X 4 1/4 and adhered it to the center of the card base.
Then it was time to adhere all the die-cut pieces into place, as shown in this photo.

7. Before adhering the bicycle in place. I decided to add a little more dimension to the bottom of the card. 
I used the grass border punch and another strip of the Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper to do this. 
Then I adhered the bicycle in place on top. 

8. I curled the balloon slightly, and mounted it on foam tape. 
I added one end of the curly bit to the balloon knot, and then adhered it in place to the corner. 
I gently pulled the curly bit, and adhered the other end to the back of the bicycle. 

9. I adhered the balloons in place, layering them slightly, then added the heart on top. 

10. I adhered the basket to the front of the bike, and inserted the leaves. 
I finger pleated all five of the flowers, and adhered them to the top of the basket. 

Here's one final look at the finished card:
