Couture Creations Design Team Application Round 2

The excitement of recieving a call for round 2 of the Couture Creations Design Team has turned into a day of inspiration and creating and it all started with a sketch that I designed especially for this project. I hope you enjoy my design.

Just incase your inspired!!! Here is a step by step

Cut 5x12 inch strip of core dinations Black Magic cardstock and emboss using Couture Creations Fresh and Fun Peacock Pleasure Embossing folder by simply embossing from both ends. Roughly sand your embossed image as above. Adhere to bottom of base cardstock inserting small piece of pattern paper of right hand corner and folding back cardstock to reveal a peekaboo secure with brad.

Adhere ribbon to layout to disguise join in cardstock add bow at right hand side. Cut 2 artisan shapes from pattern paper using Couture Creations Nesting Dies Victorian Squares and sand edges with Couture Creations Sanding Block. Adhere to layout of centre so that it will be visible behind intended photo.

Mat photograph and adhere to layout in desired position. Cut 4 flowers from pattern paper with Couture Creations Endless Dreams Decorative Die Enlightenment. Take first flower and gather together to form bud, adhere to second flower and repeat to form second layer. Repeat until all flowers are attached. Fold pointed bottom on flower to flatten and set aside.

Add rhinestone flourishes into desired position. Take 2x1.5” circles of metal shim and emboss with Couture Creations Emboss Folder Entangle. Arrange  flowers and shim at corner of project as desired.
Emboss chipboard title with Couture Creations Emboss Folder Entangle and ink with a light shade of ink completely. Highlight raised image  with darker shade of ink and wet emboss with clear embossing powder. Adhere to layout in desired position using CoutureCreations Foam Mounting Tape. Distress edge of layout for a final touch.
