Sneak Peek - Love

Hi Bloggers.

I'm running my workshop locally today - a weekend at home! Should be a fun day!

Here's today's sneak peek from Monday's show -

This card uses the other Couture Creations Frames n Frills Die Set thar's on the show - Gulda. I used the circular die from the set to cut an aperture in a piece of Coconut White Card. I then ran the background piece through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Wild Roses Embossing Folder. I matted it onto Peach Card using 3d Foam Tape.

I glued the pretty die cut into place below the aperture onto the Peach Card using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue. I cut the Couture Creations Everyday Essentials Love Die out of Coconut White Card and glue it in place within the circle.

I cut the border from the same die set out of Coconut White Card. As with the other set, you can extend the border as the die has no cutting edge at either end so I extended it to fit my background.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Off White Satin Ribbon. The flower is from the same Gulda Die Set - I cut it out of Peach Card and added an 8mm White Pearl.

I assembled the card as shown adding a couple of Pearl Corners and piercing around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
