Happy Birthday Layout by Mel Connell

Hi Again Everyone. So as it happens to be my Birthday month, I have really wanted to use the Couture Creations Party Banner Die to create a little Happy Birthday Banner. This and the fact that I am really crushing on the Gold trend that is happening at the moment were the beginnings of this layout today full to over flowing nearly with Couture Creations Dies cuts. 

So lots of Die cutting to get done for this layout. Start by cutting 3 Butterflies from Gold foil cardstock. 2 Party Banner dies cuts from Kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of these with brown ink and your Sponge Dauber. Hand write or stamp Happy Birthday not the Banner dies cuts. 

From White cardstock but your favourite Couture creations Doily Die. I have used the smaller die from the Momentos - Cameo set. Cut your self 2-4 leaf/branch/vine die cuts. Just use your Favourite one. Cut this from bright green cardstock. 

Cut 2 Madeline Lacy 8 dies, one in black cardstock and one in turquoise cardstock. This die gives you two pieces, the inner circle and an outer frame. 

Last of all cut your Favourite Couture creations flourish or swirl from black cardstock. 
With all your cutting done it is time to layer it all up to create your finished page. Used Foam tape behind some of your elements to give your layout some dimension.

To finish add Couture Creations Pearls and Gemstones to the centre of Butterfly diecuts and any border embellishments  you may have used. And add one flower to the centre of your middle cluster to cover up where all your die cuts meet in the centre.
