Hello Card - Couture Creations


Welcome to another day of Couture Creations inspirations!
Tracey R with you today - nice to see you.

When you haven't used product in your stash for a while it's like rediscovering them all over again!
That was me with today's project - a card using the beautiful Vintage Rose Collection.
I 've been using Hearts Ease so much that my lovely Vintage Rose and been delegated to the bottom of my paper stack...but not today!

So let's get crafting with an old favourite!
I especially loved the greens in the Vintage Rose Collection, and this paper (Blooms in Green) was one of my favourites.  Obviously because I had been hoarding it for that "special project!" 
Time to use this beauty and make a card for a special friend. 

I've cut a piece of  the Vintage Rose paper and run it through my Big Shot with this lovely embossing folder from the Hearts Ease Collection
To really bring out the embossed pattern I've lightly dabbed a small ink pad over the paper, 
so it just picks up the raised contours. 
Cutting the embossed patted down  to the size of my card front, I've added some gauze on either end as a trim (using double sided tape) and have then mounted the paper on foam tape for dimension and adhered to the card.  It add some detail to the card I've cut two of the single flourish from the Coteaux Curls (2pc) set from the Elegant Card Cuts Collection, placing them in opposite corners. 
Given the intricacy of this die the Turbo Precision pen was perfect to use when adhering them. 

 Once dried, I've added 2mm gemstones in Celadon and placed on the ends of the curls.
To add my title I've used a chipboard word, with some gauze underneath.  I used the Turbo Precision pen again to stick both word and the gauze to the paper.
And we're done!  
Nice and quick for when you need a card in a hurry, but certainly not scrimped on colour  or details.
Thanks for dropping by.
