I recently treated myself to some Graphic 45 papers, and, as Elisha is a big fan of fashion, I thought the Couture papers would be perfect for her birthday card.
I started with an 8"x 8" card blank and covered it with black card. I matted a striped paper and attempted some faux stitching round the edges.
I cut round one of the larger elements on a page and removed certain sections of the image with a craft knife. I then matted it onto red card. I doubled over some velvet ribbon and added a large gem to create a bow effect.
I tucked feathers and pearl sprays behind a metal corner and added a ribbon off-cut and a resin rose. I looped a string of pearls across the bottom section of the card.
I tied a triple bow from seam binding and distressed it before adding some twine and a resin rose. I finished the card with another metal corner and some pearls on the images.
I'm pleased to say that Elisha loved her card and enjoyed her birthday.
I have been having a lot of fun with my new papers and hope to show you more over the coming weeks.
