Family Shadow Box - Couture Creations


Hi! I'm sharing a family themed shadow box for Couture Creations today. This piece was easy to put together with some Couture Creations Embossing Folders and Dies!


I created these flowers using the Couture Creations Daisy Nesting Dies. The leaves were embossed with the Great Fubu 5x7 Embossing Folder (Sweet Dreams collection) and then cut out to fill in the flower clusters. I covered the brads I used to hold the flowers together with some Gold Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue for some extra sparkle.


I stared this piece with a piece of Core'dinations cardstock and the Couture Creations Petal Pleasures 5x7 Embossing Folder (Fresh & Fun collection). I trimmed the embossing cardstock to size to fit into the three smaller squares of my shadow box. I then added my photo and the date and was ready to embellish!


To make the daisies, use the three smallest dies from the Daisy Nesting Dies set to cut several shapes from white cardstock.


Use the Couture Creations Piercing Tool to punch a hold in the middle of each shape. Use Couture Creations Sharp Point Scissors to cut the petals, starting from each scallop to nearly the center of each shape.


Use the Couture Creations Scoring Tool around the edge of each petal. Round the corners from each petal using Couture Creations Sharp Point Scissors. Gently curl each petal round a finger to create a dimensional petal shape.


Stack several petal layers and secure with a brad. Optional: Top the brad with a coat of Gold Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue. Note: I created three different flowers for my shadow box. The largest flower is made from the three smallest shapes from the Daisy Nesting Die set. The medium sized flower is made from the smallest and second smallest shapes from the Daisy Nesting Die set.  The small flower is made from two of the smallest shapes from the Daisy Nesting Die set.


To create the leaves, emboss a piece of cardstock with the Great Fubu 5x7 Embossing Folder. Cut several of the leaf designs from the embossed cardstock and use to fill in the flower clusters.
