Gratitude Card - Couture Creations


Hi! I'm sharing a card that I created with the gorgeous Endless Embossing Folder for Couture Creations today. I have many things to be thankful for and this card will be going to someone special! I embossed a piece of metal for the background of my card and then added color with alcohol inks for a fun and festive finish.

Follow these steps to create a similar card:

Step One: Emboss a piece of aluminum with the Endless Embossing Folder.

Step Two: Color the embossed metal with alcohol inks. I used Tim Holtz Butterscotch, Red Pepper and Terra Cotta Alcohol Inks along with some Gold Mixatives for a bit of shine.

Step Three: Wrap a piece of ribbon around the center of the embossed and colored aluminum piece and mount onto a cardstock card base using Foam Mounting Tape.

Step Four: Cut a piece of white cardstock with a Scalloped Oval Nesting Die. Ink the edges. Stick the oval over the center of the ribbon with Double-Sided Tape.

Step Five: Attach a chipboard sentiment to the center of the Scalloped Oval die-cut with Foam Mounting Tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
