Haute Couture


A couple of cards today from a fantastic new release from Cornish Heritage Farms - it's Haute Couture from the All Things Considered line.  This set is pure heaven for a vintage-loving girl like me, I tell ya!  It is sure to be one of my forever-favorites.  For both of my cards today I used the image of the two "fashionistas" as my focal point.  (I used the Eiffel tower image in my Paris themed card in THIS post.)   Another thing I love about this set is the many wonderful ornamental elements, which are great for creating your own patterned papers and borders. I used one to make the green and white border in the card above, and also for the border across the top.


For this card, I used another one of the ornamental elements to stamp over the top of a pale blue patterned paper to give it a bolder feel.  I thought that little flapper girl button from JoAnne's went perfectly, so I gave her hat a little bit of bling and attached her to the card over a flower and some velvet ribbon.  I had so much fun playing, LOL!

The "recipes" for the cards are below.... thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day.
