Happy Everything by Tracey Cooley


Hello Everyone

So excited to be working with the new The Van Roe Collection from Couture Creations... This super gorgeous range of dies will be in stores very shortly... I particularly love the cute little 2 step dragonfly in this collection, as you can see it is just the right size for cards as well as scrapbooking  layouts and its just so cute!
For this card I chose some book paper for the front and I gently rubbed some chocolate ink into the edges using a Couture Creations Sponge Dauber... I love the way the daubers give a softer effect.
Then I used a pair of Couture Creations Non Stick Scissors to distress the edge and used the Couture Creations 12mm Double Sided Tape to secure it to the front of my card base.
Using the Couture Creations Scalloped Rectangle and Square Nesting Dies I cut a mat and Picture Pattern Paper. I inked the edges of both and distressed the picture piece.
I also cut a small strip with the Couture Creations Momento Chandelier Set and inked its edges.
I then adhered my rectangles to my card base with Couture Creations 18mm Foam Mounting Tape and then took the chandelier strip and cut it to size and threaded thin ribbon through the hearts in the centre of the die cut.
Cutting one of those cute little Couture Creations Dragonfly Sets in alternate colours and covered the top layer with Couture Creations Glitzin' Glamour Crystalina for a bit of sparkle.
I also cut one of the Couture Creations Sign Posts and added some stamps.
The just right chipboard on the front of my card is one of the words from Imaginarium Designs: Love Cherish Adore Small, which I have inked to match the rest of the card.
I added some flowers and gauze to finish of my card using a Couture Creations Adhesive Pearls Moonlight to finish the centre of the flowers.
Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to visit the Couture Creations Blog.
I hope that this little project has inspired you,
to get your craft on!
