Christmas Tri Fold Card by Tina Connolly


 Hi everybody Tina again
I'd like to share with you today how I made this card.  
Take a sheet of Core'dinations cardstock and trim to 12 inches X 9 inches.  Cut a 3 inch square from the two lower corners using a precision trimmer.  Score fold-lines, your finished card will be 6x6 inches, with the three flaps folded in.

Die-cut two 'Mistletoe' from green card-stock.

Cut one 5 1/2 X 2 3/4 from the header on the sentiments paper, 'Merry Christmas', two sentiment blocks and fussy-cut a foliage cluster.
Cut one 5 1/2 X 5 1/2, and four 5 1/2 X 2 3/4 from green patterned paper.

Cut two foliage pieces as shown.

On the outside of the left and right flap attach green patterned paper, and foliage pieces, highlight with red Glitzn'Glamour.  Attach fussy-cut foliage cluster to the outside of the bottom flap.

Attach patterned paper to the inside flaps as shown, adhere sentiment blocks.  Die-cut a 'Christmas Trinket' from Core'dinations glitter card-stock and attach as pictured.

Highlight holly berries using red Glitz'n Glamour.

And here's what it looks like when closed up.

Quilted Greetings by Tracey Rohweder


 Welcome to another day at Couture Creations.
It's hard to believe that we are already half way through the year. And like me you might be thinking where the heck did that 6 months go?? Before we know it, Christmas will be here. So I'm determined to get an early  start on my Christmas cards this year. 
Today I'm going to share with you a very easy and quick Christmas card. 
Couture Creations Christmas Emporium Collection is just gorgeous, and I'm
 excited to be working with these gorgeous papers in blues and greys. 
To start my card, I've die cut lots of diamonds with the smallest Nesting Diamonds die in various patterned papers. This is perfect for using up scraps and left overs pieces that  might not be big enough to use elsewhere.  

I've cut 40 diamonds to fit my 5x7 card, and have then inked around the edges.  I'll have a few die cuts left over to use as corner bits. 

I've covered the front of my card with 18mm double sided tape.  This will make it very easy to assembly my pattern. 
Starting at the left corner, I've lined up my diamonds with the corner of the card and then along the top. Once I was happy with where the top line was in place,  it's just like fitting together a jigsaw puzzle. But the best part - there is no wrong place! You can add your pieces how ever you like. I tried to make sure that the same patterned paper didn't touch,  so it looks very random.  

Continue arranging the  diamonds until the card front is full.
If there are any little gaps just add some
Of the extra diamonds and cut off necessary. 
Turn your card over and trim the excess paper flush with the card.
Mount the "Seasons Greetings" onto coordinating paper and then back with  12mm foam mounting tape for dimension. 

Place the greeting down the bottom of your card and add  large pearls at the intersection of each diamonds. 
And we're done! 
It's quick & easy (perfect if you need to make several) and a fantastic way to use up your scraps.  Which means we can save money...which means....more money for new stash!  I can't wait to use this design to make up some birthday cards as well. 
How soon will you start on your Christmas cards? 
Thanks for stopping by.

Loving the Snow Layout by Tina Connolly


Hi everyone,
 It's a little chilly, so I thought I'd scrap these pics of my trip to Canada (quite a few years ago).
The Christmas Emporium papers were perfect.

I lightly sprayed some mists to give a snowy feeling to my page.

Cut one of each size of 'Evergreen Trees' and lightly mist for a bit of shimmer.

 Cut 'Simone's Style from white cardstock and attach towards lower edge of the page.  
Cut a large mat and layer a few strips of the striped paper beneath photos.

Adhere Evergreen Trees using 3D foam tape to add dimension on the smallest one.

Cut 'Christmas Wish' and use it as a journaling block.  Attach towards top right hand side.

Joy Tri Fold Card by Sue Smyth


Hi all
Today I am sharing a Christmas in July project. I love 
a Tri-fold card as it gives you more room to use
 all of your Couture Creations
dies and papers. 

When you untie the seam binding, the card
folds out to reveal the inside.

I have die cut the Joy die in two colours and 
covered with glitter, see the little how to below.

Inside you can layer over top several images and
fussy cut shapes.

The black and white vintage images are just perfect for
a Tri-fold card

You might not think that blue and white and red and green 
would go together but as you can see they look wonderful
and are a nice contrast, I have added red 2mm Rhinestones 
over the wreath for dimension.

The Amaryllis die has slots in it that are perfect 
for threading seam binding through for 
a soft look.

Add the tiny pearls in your pack one at a time
for a lovely border 

I have snipped the paper lace at the fold 
to allow it to fold up with out a drama.

Cut white cardstock using the panels as a guide to make 
a fold out card.

Trim out the panels you want, wipe 
dimensional magic over the edges and 
dip into white glitter.

Die cut Joy in white cardstock.

Use the letter shapes to die cut
out the J and Y only.

 Now die cut the O in a blue cardstock.
Layer over top with 3 D foam tape.
I have covered the whole thing in white glitter too.
