Happy Birthday card - Couture Creations

Hi there and welcome, hope you are all enjoy the summer holidays. Here in Australia the weather is quite hot and we are enjoying the time with family and friends.
Today I have another a card using products from the Ultimate Crafts - Bohemian Bouquet Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations collection , this collection has been designed by Denise Boddey.

Along with the hot foil stamps and dies from this collection also with the fabulous  Go Press, Foil & Machine by Couture Creations,  you can achieve so many wonderful results. 
Using the ULT158076 Bohemian Bouquet Jungle Background die for my background - but in a different way - using the die with the 
Go Press and foil Machine you can Create a unique background.

Did you know that you can use your normal dies to create backgrounds with foils and then if you like to add any mixed media inks or colour to your projects.
Here is my card for today, the list of all the products I have used to create this card is listed on the bottom of this post.

"Happy Birthday" card by Adriana Bolzon






The background is created firstly with the
ULT158076 Bohemian Bouquet Jungle Background die and
Couture Creations CO725359 Pink mirror foil 
along with the
Couture Creations - Go Press and Foil machine.

Place your normal die on the platform of the Go Press and Foil Machine.
Place a piece of coloured foil on top on die (colour side down)
Place your card stock top
Once the Go press & foil is heated
Roll the platform through your die cutting machine.






The end result is a fine foiled image -  
below here I used different colour foils and card stock.




Once foiled, I inked a few different colour inks all over the foiled image.



Cutting  one of the ULT158078 Bohemian Bouquet Stained Glass Doily die with
Couture Creations CO725410 Gold Matte Mirror Board card stock 
and adhered to the middle of card, placing a piece of
thick foam tape underneath.

Adding a ribbon and pearl trim as shown below.




Using the Go Press and foil machine and
ULT158096 Classic sentiment "Happy Birthday" hot foil stamp 
with 
Couture Creations CO725355 Vintage Gold Matte foil, then
matting this on blue card stock.



A quick and effective background for all your cards.
