Hi all, My turn on the Couture Creations Blog today and I would love to show you my card I created with the gorgeous Blooming Friendship Collection.

I adore this paper and there are so many uses with this collection that I am afraid I kind of went overboard with all my works lol. I created a long card using lots of the collection and I love how this card works.

I cut a card base at 8 1/2 inches x 6 inches and folded it in half on the 8 1/2 side.

I stamped 2 Leaf Mosaics and 1 Floral Mosaic and cut around them.

I stamped the Chocolate Cupcake three times on different papers from the kit so I could fussy cut different sections and paper pierce them together.

I cut a mat from Garnet Cardstock – ULT200067 and a smaller mat from a piece I had leftover from another project.

I placed three mosaic tiles down the card using 3D foam tape to secure them and to give a little dimension to the tiles.

The top tile which is the Floral Mosaic I placed three pennants from the ephemera set on 3D dots to pop them a little and then the quote Great Friends along the top.

3 Black Gemstones – CO724157 – Onyx and some Dimensional Magic and the top one is finished.

The middle tile is the Leaf Mosaic has a stamped and fussy cut Chocolate Cupcake that has been paper pierced together. I added some shine and Dimensional Magic to lift it.

You can see the shine on the chocolates.. I loved this rose and used it on the third tile with a leaf, both from the Ephemera Set which I had popped up with the 3D foam tape. I added 5 Black Gemstones in the middle for a little interest.

I hope I have inspired you to create glorious things. Hugs!
