Every Day is a New Adventure Card | Couture Creations


Hi Everyone Kerrie here back with a  Couture Creations card tutorial for you.

This card while looking quite involved is super quick and easy to create.

I have used the gorgeous Couture Creations Vintage Rose Garden 6"x 6" paper pad  to create this card along with some of the NEW 2015 Die releases and the old faithful Circle Nesting Dies.

Cut background paper to size and layer onto card my card is 6"x6"

Die cut lace border strips, using patterned paper cut down to 5" long and center on Simone's Style Lace die, place Quick Release Die paper on top of die then patterned paper and lastly the top acrylic cutting plate.
By using Quick Release Die Paper your diecut paper will pop out of the die, making diecutting less time consuming as you will not have to pick everything out of the die.

Next die cut Crystal Aroma Background Die again using Quick Release Die Paper, but this time also using Metal Adapter Plate to give a clean crisp cut

See how everything cuts cleanly

and them the die cut cardstock lifts straight off the die and with a few flicks all the bits fall out of the die cut

Next you are going to cut a circle from the background die cut

and another circle this time using two of the circle nesting dies to give a circle border 
(sorry I forgot to photograph that step)

Die cut 1 x Cycad Fern Die from green patterned paper.

Distress all the edges using scissors and then using a sponge dauber ink all the edges.

Layer everything onto card base.
I have used double sided foam tape on the circle layers to give some depth.

Add some flowers and pinch your leaves to give them some character and finish off with some pearls.

Cut a sentiment from green words patterned paper and fussy cut a butterfly adhering it with foam tape and pinching it's wings to give it flight
