Good morning all!
It's my turn again on the Couture blog today.
I love the elegant look of a simple white embossed card combined with one other colour. They are so quick to pull together and they look really stylish though simple.
Today I have two cards to share with you. I used white and purple as my colour combo.
I cut a piece of white cardstock 8.5cm x 12.5cm. I then just ran the bottom half through my cuttlebug using the Tied Together embossing folder (an old folder but a good one!)
Mat this piece onto some purple card and then adhere it to your card front. I have then cut a piece of purple cardstock and stuck it across the centre of the card.
Die cut from a piece of white cardstock a doily using the Ivy Doily Set from the Fantasia Collection .
The sentiment is one from the new 3 in 1 Dreamboat collections - Ornate Frame.
I have then stamped some butterflies from the 3 in one Dreamboat Collection. Seriously - these 3 in one are FANTASTIC! You can use everything in the collection or just use some like I have on this card. I have then cut out my butterfly and curled the wings. I then added a blossom and some silver gemstones to finish my card.
Here is my second card
Another simple yet elegant card.
For this card I have used one of our new Christmas embossing folders Wild Holly from Wrapped in Joy Collection Just another reason I love Couture Creations - it doesn't matter what you use it just all seems to go! Love that I can use this folder for everything including Christmas.
Instead of embossing the whole piece of white cardstock, I have embossed just the top and bottom, leaving a blank strip to stamp my butterflies.
Once you have embossed the bottom, turn your paper and embossed the top.
I now have a blank strip for stamping. I used the butterfly stamps from the 3 in one Dreamboat Collection - Ornate Frame. I then added some silver gemstones to the middle of my butterflies.
I have stamped my sentiment again from the Ornate Frame 3 in one collection using the Victorian Square Nesting Dies and cutting off the top to make a tab.
Thanks for letting me share again! If you want some more inspiration on the 3 in one Dreamboat Collection that I have been using have a look here and see what some of the other DT gals have been up to.
