"Friendship isn't a big thing" - Mel Connell

Hello again everyone. 
So glad you could once again stop by and have a little look see at what I have been creating with the Couture Creations products. 

I recently needed to make a card to thank someone for their support over the last few months. I took the opportunity to use the brand new release dies from the Frames and Fill collection. 
I love all four of the sets in this collection and they will be staples for years to come. 

Really who doesn't love a doily? Am I right? 

 I settled on using the very sweet Elissa Set. 
Start out by creating a card base in card stock, choose a colour that matches your favourite sheet from the Vintage Rose Garden 6 x 6 paper pad. 

Die cut the doily from plain card stock, and then the inner circle die from another coordinating sheet from the 6 x 6 Vintage Rose Garden pad. The inner circle dies gives a slight pinked zigzag edge which is lovely or you can distress the edges as I have. 

Give the doily a couple of coats of embossing enamel. I've gone with an antique gold to match the gorgeous green of the paper. 
Stamp a message on the inner circle and layer the together with the new Couture Creations Glue pen. It's really big and you can cover a lot of area fast. 
Trim down your main pattern paper piece and centre in the middle of your card front. 
layer all these elements up on your card front with a few pretty flowers.

Don't forget to add a little surprise o the inside of your card. I love to put little elements inside also. 

I have used the flower spray die from the Elissa set and covered with a few layers of embossing enamel again. Adhere this to the back of one of the word sentiments from the ephemera sheet in the 6 x 6 paper pad, and mounted this inside on some foam tape. 

It's just a little something extra when they open the card to read your message.
