Shabby Chic Card | Couture Creations


Hi Everyone Kerrie here
Can you believe September is almost over, this year is going by in the blink of an eye.

I am sharing with you all a card tutorial I created for the Couture Creations Blog

I created this shabby chic look card with a touch of glitter perfect for any occasion

Start by inking up Christmas Quilt embossing folder using a versamark or clear ink pad. 
Make sure you use your Couture Creations Craft Mat so as not to get residue on your cutting mat

Next lay the embossing folder onto your card and apply pressure all over, remember it doesn't have to be perfect (you can used a brayer for a more even look)

 Remove the embossing folder and cover the card completely with white embossing powder (fine or thick)

tap off the excess

heat set using our NEW Couture Creations Heat Tool 

Spritz with a metallic mist

See how easy clean up is when you use your Couture Creations Craft Mat

Wipe clean your embossing folder either using a baby wipe or run it under the tap using soap.
Dry the embossing folder off

cut a strip of Core'dinations Core Cardstock

Emboss the strip 

sand lightly to reveal the core colour using Couture Creations Sanding Block

Die Cut 2 part pieces of Splendor Ornamental Lace Dies one from White Core'dnations Foundations Cardstock and the other from Grey Core'dinations Core Cardstock (you can do this from scraps as you don't need the full die cut)

 lightly the edges of the doily to reveal the core colour using Couture Creations Sanding Block

Die cut a section of one of the Simplicty Border dies from Core'dinations Silver Glittersilk Cardstock

Layer your two part doily dies onto base card

Pop some foam mounting tape onto the back of the embossed strip and adhere to base card
Layer on Silver glitter border strip and some paper flowers.

Add some Crystalina Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue to the flowers for some sparkle

Finish off with some Pink Blush Pearls
