Celebrate Card Set by Jo Piccirilli

Good morning all!

It's my turn again on the blog today.   

I love the elegant look of a simple white embossed card combined with one other colour.  They are so quick to pull together and they look really stylish though simple.

Today I have two cards to share with you.  I used white and purple as my colour combo. 


I cut a piece of white cardstock 8.5cm x 12.5cm.  I then just ran the bottom half through my cuttlebug using the Tied Together embossing folder (an old folder but a good one!)


Mat this piece onto some purple card and then adhere it to your card front.  I have then cut a piece of purple cardstock and stuck it across the centre of the card.

Die cut from a piece of white cardstock a doily using the  Ivy Doily Set from the Fantasia Collection .

The sentiment is one from the new 3 in 1 Dreamboat collections - Ornate Frame.


I have then stamped some butterflies from the 3 in one Dreamboat Collection.  Seriously - these 3 in one are FANTASTIC!  You can use everything in the collection or just use some like I have on this card.  I have then cut out my butterfly and curled the wings.  I then added a blossom and some silver gemstones to finish my card.

Here is my second card


Another simple yet elegant card.

For this card I have used one of our new Christmas embossing folders Wild Holly from Wrapped in Joy Collection  Just another reason I love Couture Creations -  it doesn't matter what you use it just all seems to go!  Love that I can use this folder for everything including Christmas.

Instead of embossing the whole piece of white cardstock, I have embossed just the top and bottom, leaving a blank strip to stamp my butterflies.


Once you have embossed the bottom, turn your paper and embossed the top. 


I now have a blank strip for stamping.  I used the butterfly stamps from the 3 in one Dreamboat Collection - Ornate Frame.  I then added some silver gemstones to the middle of my butterflies.

I have stamped my sentiment again from the Ornate Frame 3 in one collection using the Victorian Square Nesting Dies and cutting off the top to make a tab.

Thanks for letting me share again! 
 If you want some more inspiration on the 3 in one Dreamboat Collection that I have been using have a look here and see what some of the other DT gals have been up to.

Until next time
