Modern Essentials Birthday Card - Couture Creations

Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my first post for the month for the Couture Creations Blog.

I have created a Nautical Birthday Card today 
with the new release Modern Essentials 



Trim white cardstock to 15.2cm x 21cm, score and fold card base.  Cut Ulysses Blue Cardstock to 11.8cm x 15.6cm.

Cut mixed media cardstock to 10.7cm x 14.6cm. Apply Gesso and allow to dry. Add distress oxide and allow to dry.  Apply stencil and use Modeling Paste through the stencil.  Allow to dry and stick onto cardstock.


Add brads and adhere onto card front using 3D foam pads.





Stick to card front.

Die-Cut with Modern Essentials 
Cut, Foil and Emboss Inset Oval Frames Die

Die-cut a mixed media cardstock Modern Essentials Inset Oval Frame.

Apply Gesso and allow to dry. Add distress oxide and allow to dry. Apply stencil and use Modeling Paste through the stencil.  Allow to dry.


Stick onto cardstock.


Die-cut a white cardstock Couture Creations Tall Ship and Happy Birthday Sentiment.

  • Heat Metal Shim and GoPress & Foil Machine.
  • Place Heat Activated Foil with the shiny side down onto Metal Shim.
  • Add cardstock die-cut onto foil.
  • May need extra cardstock shims subject to what machine you use.
  • Close lid. Heat up for 30 seconds.
