Best Wishes Card - C'est La Vie Collection

Hi there everyone welcome back to the Couture Creations blog,
Adriana here today with a special card and special little U Tube video of more close ups of the card that I have created. 
 "Best Wishes" card using products from the new collection from 
Couture Creations "C'EST LA VIE" 

The background effect is so detailed, quite effective and different, this card looks amazing in real life, with all textures and layers. The background is created with the stencil from the C'est La Vie collection and Anna Griffin Embossing paste layered on top of a piece of clear acetate. Yes, Acetate !!!

Using the C'est La Vie Intricate frame stencil CO725770 and spreading a layer of the Anna Griffin - Embossing Paste CO724870 on top of piece of Acetate Sheet, gently lift off the stencil and leave the embossing paste to dry.

TIP: Once you have spread the embossing paste over the stencil onto the Acetate sheet - leave it dry overnight- don't use a heat gun, the heat gun may bend and curl your acetate sheet.

When attaching to the acetate to the card stock
using a clear craft glue and only place a small amount
usually where you will be adding some delicate flowers over, so that it hides the glue marks on the acetate.
 I placed a small amount of glue on the bottom left hand corner of the card.

Cutting some various fern leaves and flowers from the
C'est La Vie - Fern Leaves - decorative die CO725764
C'est La Vie - Geraniums Layered - decorative die CO725765

I have created a You Tube video with close up details / photographs of the card.

Thanks and big hugs
