Another day and another wonderful set of decoupage images from The Crafthouse Press. These designs are from the "Jolly Nation ~ Couples Collection" and feature the Charleston Couple. Once the image was decoupaged, I cut a piece of the backing paper which complements the design perfectly and matted it onto a DL size card.
Then with my new, much loved and much wanted toy, (yes, I finally treated myself to it for Christmas and I will never look back) the Epic 6 die cutting and embossing machine from Quickutz, I embossed the background matt to the main image, with the dots embossing folder.
Before adhering the decoupaged couple to the rest of the card, I hand glittered the skirt and wrapped a small piece of organza ribbon around her waist. As a final flourish and the finishing touch, I used a small adhesive stone on the headband and added some shimmer touches and highlights to the image.
