Gentleman's Emporium Birthday Card - Couture Creations

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

I have created a Masculine Birthday Card with the new release 

This collection is just perfect to use for masculine cards and I know you are going to love it.

Step by step instructions:

1. Trim Midnight Hour Cardstock and Gentleman's Emporium Pattern Paper. Distress edges and adhere onto card front using double sided tape.

2. Die-cut white cardstock with Gentleman's Emporium - Thin Gentleman's Corner Die (need two).

Foil with Gentleman's Emporium Die-cuts:

- Heat Metal Shim and GoPress & Foil Machine.
- Place Heat Activated Foil with the shiny side down.
- Add Gentleman's Emporium - Thin Gentleman's Corner cardstock die-cut onto foil.
- Add shims.
- Close lid and heat up for 30 seconds.
- Wind slowly through die-cutting machine.

3. I created a watercolour background using alcohol markers and blender card. Trim Midnight Hour Cardstock and add blender card onto cardstock. Adhere onto card front using 3D foam tape.

4. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock and die-cut with a fishtail die. Die-cut Midnight Hour Cardstock with a fishtail die. Add the white cardstock fishtail onto the Midnight Hour Cardstock fishtail. Adhere onto watercolour background.

5. Stamp Gentleman's Emporium - Whiskey Mini Stamp onto blender card with Memento Ink. Colour and fussy-cut. Add onto watercolour background using 3D foam dots.

6. Adhere Gentleman's Emporium - Whiskey Mini Stamp watercolour background onto card front using 3D foam dots to finish.
