Life is a Journey

Hi Everyone 

My turn on the Blog today and I have created a little 5x5 card to feature today. 


to create this little gem I cut some Ultimate Craft Cardstock in Denim to a 5x5 card base.
Then I added a layer of canvas with frayed edges for effect. 


Then in one corner I folded the edge back for a more vintage look.
I then cut some more denim cardstock and tore off the same corner.
I cut a Couture Creations Sea Breeze Cardinal Frame in matching cardstock and placed it in between the cardstock and a piece of Sea Breeze pattern paper from the 6x6 paper pad. As shown below.


Then I added a Sea Breeze Metal Charm to offset the frame.


I then added some embellishments from the Sea Breeze Collection including the Sea Breeze Ephemera, Chipboard Die Cuts, cabochons and some gauze. Along with a matching Sea Breeze Windy Flourish Die Cut and a ships wheel Die cut using the Sea breeze Compass and Wheel Die

 

I added a small chipboard sentiment to finish off. 

This card was really quick and very easy to achieve, I hope you can use it on one of those occasions that you need a card in a hurry. 

Thanks for stopping by.

DREAM

Hi Everyone 

I am not sure why, but at the moment I am really loving shaker cards.....
So with a little help from some Couture Creations Acetate and some sequin I came up with this sweet little shaker for any occasion.


this 6x4 inch gem is just the right size to post or to pop on a gift. 
To Start I cut a 6x4 card base from Ultimate Craft Cardstock then I cut a coloured mat and a slightly smaller white one.


from the white mat I cut 2 Couture Creations Beautiful Life Fluttershy die cuts randomly.
I kept one of the Fluttershy die cuts for later


I added some Couture Creations Acetate over the back of my cut outs and then surrounded them with Couture Creations foam tape and added some mixed sequin 


I then adhered some scrap white cardstock to the foam tape (I added white because I wanted the sequin against white cardstock). Then add this to your coloured mat and then to your card base 


I then added some Couture Creations Flowers in a cluster.
I took the centre from some and the leaves from others to add to my cluster.



then I added the Fluttershy Die Cut, I folded his wings up to look like he is in flight.


then i added a couple of Flitterby die cuts from the Couture Creations Beautiful Life Flitterby and Flowersigh die .
I stamped a Sentiment from the Ultimate Craft Magnolia Lane Stamp set and added some random 

Thanks for s topping by
