Creative Ideas With Couture Creations – “Thanks”

Sometimes, saying thank you is enough. When it’s handmade, its much more than thanks, don’t you think?

Today’s creation uses the Thanks cut, foil and emboss sentiment die from Couture Creations.

The background was created by using strips of patterned paper to create and Iris Folded aperture.

The sentiment was cut from just a couple of different colours of cardstock and glued together before being fixed over the aperture with foam pads.

Gems to finish.

To be honest, to make this quicker, you could leave out the iris folding and just have the aperture and it would have looked equally as good, but with a growing mountain of card and paper stash, I felt it was a good use of what I had.

Hope you enjoyed this little overview. If you would like to see more of my design team explorations for Couture Creations, you can visit the archive here.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Bye for now.

    Lovely as always John. I love Iris folding and use it quite a lot on my various makes. I hadn’t thought of adding the sentiment over the folding but it certainly works exceptionally well. Will definitely be giving this a go. Keep safe everyone x

    It is an incredibly beautiful card. The Discreet sentiments in the foreground and your great die and the iris folding … it
