Another Dirty Dare Challenge: to make an "Elegant" card. After seeing Dawn's blog with her CUTE bride card, I knew I just HAD to make one for my niece who's getting married in 3 weeks.
The original designer of this template is Jan Tink, of Stamps, Paper, Scissors. She has an awesome blog, full of amazing stuff--be sure and check it out!
Anyway, I don't have a working printer, so I tried to stick a piece of typing paper up to the computer and trace it....um, have any of YOU tried that b4?? It doesn't work!! :(
Then I realized with the screen size, it would've been waaay too large for my card anyway. SO, I redrew it myself, looking off her template and resized it a couple times, and wha-La!! OK--the skirt isn't rounded enough, but next time I'll remember to alter my template ;)
The skirt has tulle over it--actually it isn't that stiff tulle, it's the sheer stuff (what I had on my veil). For the bodice, after cutting it out, I ran it through my cuttlebug with the "Textiles" folder. Then I went over the puffy parts with a 2-way glue pen and added Dazzling Diamonds. Very sparkly. I also sewed a cute border all around the pink layer, and the prima flowers on bouquet have glitter white brads in centers. :)
Oh yes...the necklace is made of beads that came off of my headpiece from when I got married! Just a little added sentimental tidbit. :)
I just realized as I went to type in a label for this that it doesn't use any STAMPS!! What do I put it under?? LOL.
