Gloria's Dreamboat Cards!

Welcome! It is Gloria with you again today. I am sharing one of the Couture Creations Dreamboat 3-in-1 sets today. 

This one is called Floral Wreath. Each set features one A2 (4.25 x 5.5 inches) Embossing Folder, along with matching Cling Stamps and Dies.

This was such a beautiful set to work with. I ended up creating two cards - one with a masculine feel and one with a feminine feel.

I stamped the image with white ink, then heat-embossed with white embossing powder. Once the embossing was cool to the touch, I dry embossed the image with the matching embossing folder. I fussy cut the bottom edge, and added a bit of printed paper. I stamped the medallion into the center, then die cut some of the matching shapes out of paper to add to the stamped shape. 

I used the same technique for this version, except I stamped with watermark ink and heat-embossed with Ranger Distress embossing powder for a more grungy look. I die cut some printed paper for the center. I fussy-cut the bottom part of the embossed image and slipped the music note paper behind it. I hope you get a chance to work with these fun products!
