Hi friends! I made this card using the new Couture Creations Tied Together die. Doesn't this die create a gorgeous background? Similar to the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms die that I use on everything lately, this is fast becoming one of my go-to favorites.
I love Clean and Simple cards but just can't seem to ever make them work. What starts as CAS usually quickly turns to Cluttered and Complex. I had additional embellishment ideas but I thought maybe I could stop at this point and possibly salvage a CAS style card.
I cut the Couture Creations Tied Together die with white card stock. The die is a bit longer than an A2 size card so I trimmed it. I then cut a center rectangle from the front of my card base using a Spellbinders Curved Matting Basics die. I glued the Tied Together die cut to the underside of the card front then glued a piece of Authentique Favorite paper behind the to finish off the inside. I added rhinestones to the centers of the die cut.
Next, I rounded the bottom corners using a corner rounder. I then cut a frame using two Spellbinders Curved Matting Basics sets. I adhered the frame to the card using Joy Foam Pads. It might be difficult to see in the photo but the layering really adds to the overall dimension.
I cut the Enjoy die and colored it with my Mini Ink Blending Tool and tumbled glass Distress Ink before glittering it with a Wink of Stella pen and gluing it to the card front.
Last, I cut the Heartfelt Cretions Arianna Blooms flower. I left it in the die while I dabbed tumbled glass distress ink around the edges with the blending tool. Coloring it in the die created a small white edge around the flowers. I popped it out of the die, shaped it with my Paper Blossoms Tool Kit, added Rock Candy to the center and adhered it to the card front with Joy Foam Pads.
