Hi! I'm sharing a set of cards that I created for the Couture Creations Winter CHA Booth today. I used dies from the NEW Glamour Days Collection, as well as some of my favorite Nesting Dies to create this romantic set of cards. This card set is published in Issue 2 of the Couture Creations Creative Inspiration Magazine! This magazine is FREE! Please take a look. You will not want to miss the projects and tutorials that my fellow Couture Creations Designers share in this issue.
I went all out designing these cards! I had a lot of fun embellishing not only the front of each card, but also the inside! The inside of each card is stamped with a sentiment from the A Banner Day Clear Stamp Set from Paper Wings Productions. The sentiments reads:
Life is not measured
by the number of breaths we take
but by the number of
moments that take our
How romantic! *Sigh*
I used a two-step process to create the silhouette pendants for this card set.
Part One: Use the Devonshire Lady and Gentleman Die to cut a lady and gentleman silhouette from black cardstock. Attach the lady and gentleman die-cuts to pieces of patterned paper with Double-Sided Tape. Add a small amount of glaze to the top of each die-cut and press a clear pendant over the top of each die-cut. Once the glaze is dry, trim any excess patterned paper from around the pendants and glue a gold rose to the top.
Part Two: Follow the Beaded Cabochon Tutorial by the mega-talented Sandie Edwards. Cut two pieces of light brown cardstock with the smallest Oval Nesting Die. Cut two pieces of white cardstock with the smallest Scallop Oval Nesting Die. Ink the edges of all die-cuts with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Secure the brown oval die-cuts to the white scallop die-cuts with Double-Sided Tape. Glue the now beaded pendants to each oval mat and secure to the embellished card bases with Foam Mounting Tape. Finish each card by adding a floral cluster under each pendant.
Here is the matching Devonshire Gentleman card.
