Creative Ideas With Couture Creations – “Peace”

Time for a little peace and calm among the madness, don’t you think? Tenuous link but you get where I am coming from, I am sure.

This one didn’t end up quite the way I had expected but it turned out right nice anyway. *happy sighhh

Using the Parquet Tiles cut, foil and emboss die I chopped out a piece of black cardstock and then chopped that down into two halves with scissors.

These bits were then stuck in two corners of some patterned paper that I have already layered onto the front of a rectangular card – YES, not square, lol.

I made the sentiment panel with some offcuts of black and white card. On this I stuck some die cut leaves and flowers, keeping a couple back for some titivation – apparently a real word and not just a gigglefest – later on.

The Peace sentiment cut, foil and emboss die was then inked up with two different shades of green ink and ran through the Cut’n’Boss with a bit of white card. This gave a lovely ombre – shaded – effect to the sentiment.

If you’d like a more animated idea of how this was achieved, it’s similar to this video that I shared a while back.

Finally I used some of those left over flowers to add some little spots of loveliness.

Not entirely sure that using black cardstock was the right move for a card that was supposed to have a “soft” feel so I was surprised how well it works.

What do you think?

Bye for now.

  2. Hi John. Nearly choked on my brew when I saw rectangle, haha. I’m with the others on this. I think the black really sets it off and stops it being overly pretty (which, to be honest, I’m not overly fond of personally). Kath x

  3. Beautiful design John. I personally think the black works extremely well with softer hues and I use it quite a lot on my makes. Keep safe everyone
