Couture Creations First Design Team Audition

Hey friends!

Couture Creations is having a design team call and I absolutely LOVE dies and embossing folders, not to mention their gorgeous flowers, so I thought I would apply.

We had to submit 4 items.  So here they are!

I love how this card came together.  By using an embossing folder it just gives it a bit more dimension and texture. A nesting die and a pretty flower to complete the look. This paper is from the Carta Bella line Devoted.

This one is a bit different for me in the way that they are colours that I would never ever use normally.  They are from Bo Bunny Hello Sunshine collection.  I'm very much a pink and pretty colour chick but I was really pleased with how this turned out.  Again an embossed banner down the middle and a couple of nesting dies.  So easy and simple!

These next two projects are for my little girls birthday coming up in a couple of weeks.  Yep my baby is turning 10!  She wants to have a craft party so how could I say no to that??  Of course I had to make the invitations.  I have made quite a few invitations in the past and for the last two years I have made them for the year 7 graduation at school.  The first thing I do when I make them is go straight to my embossing folders.  I love that I get some really lovely results with just a few embossing folders and dies and I dont have to use all my pretty papers, just some different coloured cardstock.  Most people throw their invites away after the event and I can't bear to think of my pretty papers sitting in a bin somewhere!

The top and bottom flap open up to show all the party details. 

So we had to have some party bags too. These were made with a small paper bag and I have just stuck to pieces of card to the bag and then embellished them.

So fingers crossed now!  There are some amazing ladies applying too.  Liz Webber to name one.  Oh my how I love her work! 

Enjoy your week everyone and thanks for stopping by.
