Delightful Tag - Couture Creations


Hi! I'm sharing a fun technique using the Passion Embossing Folder, from the Couture Creations Fine Designs Collection, and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos for Couture Creations today. I created this tag from the second impression of the Gelato colored Passion Embossing Folder that I used to create THIS CARD earlier this month. This beautiful watercolor effect is quick and easy to create and I'm sharing the tutorial again in case you missed my previous post. A little bit of Gelato really goes a long way and I could have made a 3rd and 4th impression before needing to add more color!


Step One: Gather several colors of Gelatos, a piece of white cardstock, a mister filled with water and the Passion Embossing Folder.


Step Two: Lightly mist the back inside portion of the Passion Embossing Folder with water and apply Gelatos color to the raised floral pattern. Note: I used Raspberry, Watermelon, Metallic Melon and Banana Gelatos.


Step Three: Carefully place a piece of white cardstock on top of the colored side of the embossing folder, fold the top half of the embossing folder down and apply pressure to transfer the color to the cardstock.


Step Four: Remove the cardstock from the embossing folder and set aside to dry. Trim the cardstock into a tag and embellish to finish.


I added the larger doily from the Ivy Doily Die Set (Fantasia Collection) to the bottom of my flower cluster. I embossed a piece of green cardstock with the Turkish Delight Embossing Folder (Fine Designs Collection) and cut out several of the leaves with my Sharp Point Scissors and added them around my flowers. I added Pink Flamingo Self Adhesive Gemstones to the Passion flower centers for a touch of sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
