Brayden's Y12 Graduation by Kerrie Gurney

Hi Kerrie here with a layout featuring the new Couture Creations Sophia Decorative Dies and Couture Creations Elegance Embossing Folders. 

This is a rare family photo of us all my son's year 12 graduation and I wanted to keep my layout fairly simple as the photo is quite busy looking with all the colour from our clothes, but I still wanted to have lots of  detail and texture.

Die cut Blossom Doily Die and Lanvin Decorative Die from Core'dinations cardstock

  Emboss both die cuts with Extra Loren embossing folder

Cut main background patterned paper to 11" x 11" the photo mat to 9" x 6"  and lastly a strip of patterned paper 2.5" x 11" 

Emboss the photo mat, embossing one side and then the other this gives one side a flattened embossed surface and the second side has a normal embossed surface. This gives a softer embossed look to the top half of the photo mat.

Dry "emboss" the base Core'dinations cardstock, by placing the Large Hepburn Embossing folder under the Core'dinations cardstock and sand with Couture Creations Sanding Block. The embossing folder pattern shows with the core colour coming through.  

Distress all the edges of all patterned papers using Couture Creations Precision Scissors

Layer all your pieces on and embellish using Couture Creations Moonlight Pearls
Using Couture Creations Foam Tape to raise the flower centers
