Special Occasion - Gold Leaf banner die

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by here today at the 
Couture Creations blog. Its my turn today on the blog and today I am showcasing a die from the "Special Occasions' Collection.

The new "Special Occasions" collection is available now. I love some of the dies in this collection - I have one which is so perfect for cards and other projects. 
It is the "Gold Leaf Banner" decorative die. ULT157918.

I have used this die cut as a feature on my two cards for today  - it is so versatile that I also created a Birthday card and also a Christmas card with the new soon to be released "Highland Christmas"
but first how to create this card - step by step.

Using a 5'x7' (18cmx 12.75cm) card base.
Cut one piece of Gold Damask mirror board CO725405 measuring 12cm x 17cm, 
Adhere to the front of white card.
Cut one piece of Ice Crystal card stock ULT200019 measuring 11.5cm x 16.5cm
Place inside C'est La Vie Intricate Background Embossing folder CO725768
Adhere to the front of card, as shown in photograph.
Cut 1 - Gold Leaf Banner with matte Gold mirror board CO725410.
Measure 5cm and cut - adhere to the front of card, leaving a gap in the lower section of banner, this will be covered with flowers and sentiment.

Hot foil the sentiment "Birthday wishes to You" with the Go Press & Foil machine and Gold matte heat activated foil with smooth white glossy card CO726233.

Instructions for hot foil sentiment on card stock with the 
Go Press & Foil machine
Turn the machine on
Open Lid
Place hot foil stamp on Heat plate
Place cut foil coloured side down
Place white glossy card on top
Close lid and let it heat through for 30-40 seconds
Wind slowly through and back in your die cutting machine.

Trim the foiled sentiment, matt a frame of Gold mirror board.
Arrange and secure all pieces as shown in photo.
Decorate with flowers and leaves. Adding some touches of gold foiling on the embossed card stock.

and now here is my second card using the same banner die with the new collection soon to be released
"Highland Christmas"

I created the flowers with Couture Creations Foamiran sheets and a poinsettia flower die ..... how wonderful does the gold go with this gorgeous Christmas paper collection, "Highland Christmas" papers will be available soon.
