Year 12 Formal

 I am sharing a layout I created for the Couture Creations Blog using a photo from my son's year 12 formal last year.
This is Brayden with his girls, one is his girlfriend and the other two are his best girl friends, I love that he has a close friendship with the girls. It means he treats them all with respect, which make me proud.




For this layout I chose to turn the photo to black and white as there too many colours for the type of layout I wanted as you can see with the original photo



I  used the yet to be released Sophia Decorative Dies and the embossing folders from the Elegance Collection which have just been released.

To start die cut the Beradi Heart Die and 2 of the Matiloa Flourish Die from cardstock,  emboss the Beradi Heart Die with the Extra Loren Embossing Folder

Cut a strip of patterned paper 1.5" x 11" and emboss with Extra Confetti Embossing Folder working the strip through the slot at the top of the Embossing Folder.

Distress all the edges of your patterned paper with Couture Creations Scissors



Tear a small section on the bottom of your page and adhere a section of the second Matiloa Flourish Decorative Die  under the base page.
