Couture Creations: Art Tag by Mel Connell

Glamour Days

Hi ladies, today I'm creating with Couture Creations Glamour days Decorative Dies,

First I've embossed white core'dinations cardstock using Couture Creations  Who What Wear  JoJo folder, and then rubbed a hard surface ink over it, to highlight the raised surface

Take the Glamour Days Decorative dies 1950's Albert & Simonetta, to complete Alberts look, cut him out twice in black and once in white, from Core'dinations cardstock, Layer the white over the black, and then cut the 2nd black to form his sports jacket.
Simonetta's look is done by cutting once in white, one in black using Core cardstock and once in a pattern paper, the pattern paper and black are cut to styles her dress and hat, draw on Sim's shoe's

To give Simonetta a little class, I've add a few Couture Creations  Adhesive Gem Stones Crystal,
 to her dress and hat

From red Core'dinations cardstock, cut out one of the
run a little DM over the top for a little shine

To the centre of the stars, on Who What Wear Embossing Folder  JoJo, add a little more of
Couture Creations Gem Stones Crystal,  for a touch of elegance

Hope you have fun with this one
