Dance the Night Away

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.

  1. The layering of the couple is, once again, just stunning! and the glitter finish on the skirt is the perfect final touch! :)

    LOVE the embossing, as well...looks like that new "toy" you treated yourself to was well worth the investment! ;)

    Brilliant card, baby! <333
