Flower Garden

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my very first post for the 2015 Couture Creations Design Team
  In the last year or so I have really gotten into making cards and love giving my friends and family my handmade creations.  On this card I have decided to leave off a sentiment as it will give me the opportunity later to add something if I feel it needs it, rather than restricting the use for a specific celebration.... but thinking maybe for Mother's Day.

 To start my card I created a 5"x7" base card from some olive green 
Coredinations cardstock.
From the Vintage Rose 12 x 12 Paper Pack I chose the Roses and Butterflies paper to cut a mat slightly smaller than your 5x7" base card. 
I then die cut the patterned paper using the Barossa Frame from the Elegant Card Cuts collection. I never forget to use my Quick Release Die Paper which helps release the die cut easily from the die. Because this die was a little bit more intricut I also made sure to use my Metal Adapter Mat which gave a crisper cut.

To give the die cut paper another dimension I embossed the paper with the  Garden Frame
  from the Hearts Ease collection.

From the Kalini collection of dies I then die cut four of the Tall Basket Flowers. I spent some time fussy cutting a couple of butterflies which I then blinged up using some Glitz and Glamour.

To achieve the look of depth to the card I mounted the patterned paper frame on foam mounting tape. Once positioned I tucked some gathered organza ribbon underneath the top and bottom of the frame. I secured two of the basket flower die cuts to the top right and bottom left of the frame with the Couture Creations Turbo Glue Pen (such an awesome new product).  To finish off I mounted the two butterflies and a medium sized flower that I inked the edges of with an olive ink.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
