December Daily Carousel - Couture Creations
Hi! I'm sharing my December Daily Carousel for Couture Creations today. December is always a whirlwind month for me, so I thought a spinning album would be a fun way to document my days. I started with some notecards and photo sleeves and added texture and color with my favorite Couture Creations Wrapped in Joy Embossing Folders and some Premium Nesting Dies.
Follow these steps to create "chalkboard" finish embossed cardstock:
1. Emboss white cardstock with your favorite Wrapped in Joy Embossing Folders.
2. Paint each piece of cardstock with gesso. Let dry.
3. Paint each piece of cardstock with festive colors of watered-down acrylic paint. Let Dry.
4. Sand each piece of cardstock with a Sanding Block to reveal the white core.
Continuing with the chalkboard theme, I die-cut black cardstock with a Victorian Square Nesting Die to create date placecards to number my notecards. I stamped the numbers onto each square white ink.
Here's my notecards for the first half of the month. I tucked painted cardstock pieces behind the large photos and into photo sleeves for a pop of color. I attached the date cards to the back of each notecard.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
