Special Day card

Hi everyone Adriana here today, and it's my turn on the Couture Creations blog and for
today, I wanted to showcase one of the ESTHETICA new release Cut, Foil & Emboss Dies
Using some of the paper of the new release GENTLEMAN"S EMPORIUM COLLECTION
from Couture Creations. Included here is a step by step instructions and details on how to create your very own Special Day card.

Special Day card by Adriana Bolzon


1. Cut white card stock 27cm x 13.5cm, scored in half - create a square card base. i

2. Cut Mirror board silver lines CO725406 - 13cm x 13cm adhere to front of card.
3. Cut Midnight Blue card ULT200010  12cm x12cm, adhere to front of card
4. Cut  Gentleman's Emporium paper CO7268220 - 11.5cm x 11.5cm, ink edges and adhere to front of all bases of card

5. Create and tie a double bow with light blue seam binding ribbon as shown below

6. Foil the Esthetica Magnolia Frame with the Go Press and foil machine and silver heat activated foil 
just a reminder for those who don't know how to.

Turn machine on
Open Lid
Place Metal Conversion plate on platform of machine
Place cut, foil and emboss die on top of metal conversion plate
Place cut foil colour side down (Silver )
Place card stock on top (midnight Blue card stock)
Close lid and let it heat for 30-40 seconds
Wind slowly the platform through and back in your die cutting machine.

7.Using an polka dot embossing folder create an oval centre piece, foiled with the embossing folder and
the Go Press and foil machine

I created a video a while ago using this same technique
check it out below

HERE is the link :

8.Once foiled a piece of card stock with the polka dot embossing folder and Go Press and foil machine, place this and adhere to the centre of Esthetica's Magnolia foiled Frame.

Decorate with word sentiment, flowers, leaves, foliage, and of course a silver foiled butterfly.
