Happy Trails

 here  is the  step by step tutorial I created for for CSW Distributors  featured on Crafters Home Blog using the new Couture Creations Fantasia Doily Dies and Couture Creations Embossing Folders

Cut  piece of patterned paper 12" x 7" and cut bottom into a scroll shape, distress edges and ink with black ink pad and adhere to base cardstock

 Die cut Tattered Lace doily die from patterned paper, see how easy the paper comes away from the die when using Couture Creations ejection foam on the die.

Cut Tattered Lace doily diagonally in half

Cut a piece of patterned paper 8" x 8" distress the edges and ink.  Fold in half, place in Extra Confetti embossing folder from the Elegance Collection and run through machine

turn around and emboss the end piece, this will give you patterned paper some texture, one side will be embossed and one side will be debossed, giving more interest to your background.

open up and and adhere to your page

Cut a piece of cork 1.5" x 12" and emboss using Magical Embossing Folder from the Fresh & Fun collection
Ink lightly using black ink to bring the pattern out.

adhere to page using Couture Creations doublesided tape

adhere both halves of Tattered Lace die to your page and adhere photo to page using Couture Creations foam tape to only 3 sides of your photo leaving the top open to slide in a 4" x 6" journaling tag.

Finish off with Couture Creations Cafe Cream Pearls
