Vintage Roses Card | Couture Creations


Hi there everyone

I created this Vintage look card for the Couture Creations Blog using the new soon to be released Hearts Ease Papers, Dies and Embossing Folders.

I just love the purples in this collection

This card is another super quick one to create once you have coloured all your Couture Creations Flowers to match the papers.
I have used these 6 different flowers and coloured some purple/aubergine to match the paper and some I have given just  a touch of  gold.

It was a bit of trial and error to get the correct shade of purple/aubergine
I started with a purple mist but it was so the wrong colour so I added some gold to tone it down but that didn't work so I mixed 5 colour sprays this is where the non stick craft mat is perfect you just spray onto the mat mix the colours together and then rub the flowers onto the colour. I give my flowers a spritz with water first so the colour soaks in more evenly and then to add more texture to the flowers give them bit of a squeeze and scrunch

I then set the flowers aside to dry or you can dry them in a  hurry with a hit of the Heat Tool

Here is a closer look at the flowers all coloured and scrunched

Onto creating the card

 die cut 1 x 10.5cm section of Simone's Style lace border, 1 x Lilliputana die both in aubergine cardstock. 2 x the top section of Cycad leaves in green cardstock, 
use Quick Release Die Paper so the cardstock doesn't stick into the dies.

Ink all the edges of the die cuts using brown ink and sponge dauber. Pinch the leave to add some life to the leaves.

Cut a piece of cream cardstock 10.5cm x 5cm and emboss using Garden Frame embossing folder

Cut Small Pansies paper to 10cm x 14.5cm and scrunch up to give a more vintage look

Cut pennants from Pansy Gingham, Orchard Delight and Pansy Damask papers I cut 2 x 4cm x 10cm and 1 x 2.5 x 10cm 
Embossing the 2.5cm strip using the Chain Link Embossing Folder

Distress the edges of all papers and cardstock and ink the edges
and then start layering onto card base

Use the Turbo Glue Pen to adhere all your embellishments ..these pens are fabulous for adhering intricate die cuts

add all the flowers and leave on 

with a touch of seam binding ribbon and muslin

finish off with some 2mm Gemstones
