Sweet 16 Birthday Card | Couture Creations

#kerriegurney #couturecreationsaus #birthday

Hello to you all 
yesterday was my baby girls' 16th birthday 
 I cannot believe she is now old enough to get her learners permit and only has two more years of school and then that is it for me no more school age children ...I cannot believe how quickly these last 16 years have gone by. 
For those of you with young children please cherish every moment because in the blink of an eye they will be all grown up.
If you visit my blog you can see some photos from her party that she had earlier in the month, they are not fabulous photos as everyone started arriving early so I quickly took them with my phone 

Anyway enough of that here is the card I created for her using one of my favourite Couture Creations Perfectly Petite Doily Dies..young and fresh white on white with a touch of tiffany blue and gold but oh so simple and quick to create

Die cut 9 x Victoria Perfectly Petite Doily Die from white cardstock

cut them all straight across the middle

Cut a piece of white cardstock to 13cm x 30cm fold in half and then cut 2cm off the front

Start layering up your half doilies using 6mm Double Sided Tape to adhere them to the base card. I stuck both sides first then popped the middle doily on. 
Once all the doily layers are on run another strip of double sided tape and  hand pleat a piece of ribbon on

Create some interest to the top of your card by scoring some lines using the Handheld Essentials stylist and the Couture Creations trimmer as a guide.
TIP: Make sure you work from the back of the card so the line are embossed on the front not debossed

to give the flower some shimmer I painted it with the Cottonball Pearl Drops this gives a nice shimmer to the flower

Pop a bit of  frayed mulsin, gold cord and metallic gold chipboard numbers and you are done ...too easy

lots of lovely doily layers

see the score lines at the top of the card
