Lavender Dotty Dress
Back to one of my cards today I'm afraid!
I had a whole load of card delivered from Anna Marie Designs and had to use sheet right away.
I decided to go with the lavender coloured Dotty card for the dress die to be cut from, I used the Majestic Elements Labels 25 die set for this card, I cut the large background part of the die out off coconut white card and layed over a Matt of the lavender dotty card just big enough to give a little border, I then cut another piece of coconut white card and embossed with the "Eternity" A4 embossing folder, I added another tiny mat of dotty card behind that and stuck it to a plain white card.
The focal element is the pretty dress that is designed by our Sue (Wilson), I stamped it three times, one on white card and two on dotty, I cut each one out, coloured the first one (White card) with flesh coloured pro markers, I then cut the second one entirely apart from the flesh coloured part and the final one I just cut the bottom part of the dress, it looks like it's all gathered, I embossed that part of the stamp, scored a few of the lines to give the dress some shape and dimension, I stuck this part with Pinflair Glue gel. I cut the inner part of the label 25 die with white card to mount the dress on and added this to the centre of e card. I put a piece of lavender seam binding across the card and added a little pearl flower strip on top, I then stuck the focal element part of the card onto the base with foam tape and a little glue to help with positioning, once this was all stuck down, I added a little arrangement of complimentary coloured flowers in the top corner and a double bow in the opposite corner, topped with a blingy brad, a few lavender pearls here And there to finish off the card.
What do you think?
Please leave me a comment below,
Bella had her operation so she has lost her baby making bits and gained a micro chip, well they say fair exchange is no robbery! Haha, you wouldn't think she would be running about tonight, but she is, she has climbed up the top of the Guinea Pig cage (about 5 Feet), I am trying to stop her but she is too full of energy and very inquisitive, thank you for all of your help, support and kind comments.
