Christmas Quickies With Couture Creations – 11

A little creative inspiration for your card making adventures today with a card making layout sketch – you’ll love it if your creativity is stuck in a rut!

Today’s creation uses elements from The Gift Of Giving papercraft collection from Couture Creations.

As an added bonus, for this post I have created a card layout template that you can use to recreate the background! More on that in a minute.

Stuff Used

  • CO727898 – The Gift Of Giving Patterned Paper – Sheet 2
  • A4 sheet of green cardstock. 300gsm or above is best as this will be the card base.
  • A5 sheet of white cardstock to coordinate with your choice of patterned paper.
  • CO723973 – Paper Trimmer
  • CO726752 – Mini Scoreboard
  • CO724389 – Turbo Glue Pen
  • Assorted gems/dies/embellishments to coordinate with your choice of patterned paper and core cardstock.


First, cut the green A4 sheet of cardstock down to 11.5 inches. Then cut this in half at 5.75 inches. Next, score at 4 and 1/8th inch on your scoreboard. Although we have used the imperial measurements from these tools, this will form a greetings card that measures 105mm x 145mm.

This is awesome as I can now switch to millimetres for the layering measurements. Hope I didn’t confuse you!

Next, download the card layout sketch and print/open it and cut the coloured cardstock and patterned paper according to the design.

The large 95mm x 135mm piece are cut from the white cardstock.

The smaller pieces were are cut from patterned paper.

Glue all of these in place on the card front as per the layout.

Next, utilise your stash to create a focal embellishment cluster. In the example shown I have used a small selection of mini dies, dress making pins, adhesive gems and bakers twine.

Don’t forget, print and save the layouts for some mojo in the coming years.

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

Bye for now.
