Couture Creations Design Team Audition 2018

Hi Everyone, I was so excited when I saw Couture Creations is having a Design Team Audition. I would be so proud if chosen to join their Design Team and using their beautiful products.

I recently bought a Couture Creations GoPress Foil Machine and I must say I just love using it.  It came pretty handy in making the three cards to enter the audition.

Now here is my cards

  • Peel off the protective backing layer and adhere to card front to finish.
One get such a beautiful effect when using the foil stamps and foil with the GoPress Foil Machine. The sentiment just stand out. I also just love using the foil machine for foiling chipboard and wooden embellishments. The foiled chipboard and wooden embellishments makes beautiful embellishments on cards.

I have allot of embossing folders and by using the GoPress Foil Machine it is as if it just brings more of an eye catching effect when used with foil.
