I Cut up my Wedding Veil


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 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.

Wow - you've done an excellent job of redrawing the template! I was planning to make one of these cards this week & couldn't decide what to do with the bodice - thanks for the great idea of using the Cuttlebug embossing folder & the glitter. Your card turned out absolutely gorgeous - esp. the one using bits & pieces from your own wedding!

OMG these cards are awesome, love the embossing with all that bling, this is a card your niece will bring out to share with the grandchildren on her 50th Wedding Anniversary. It is fantastic.

I KNOW I would have tried the piece of paper over the computer and trace thing LOL However I also KNOW I would NEVER have been able to redraw it myself and have such a SPECTACULAR card for the end product!!!! It's truly beautiful and the fact that you added beads off of your own headpiece makes me tear up!!! You are soooo sweet and thoughtful..SOOOOOOO stop about what you COULD HAVE done better..the card is done and will mean so much to your niece!! And all of us got a peak at how we can make a beautiful bride card!!!
Thanks
In Peace & Laughter,

Multi-Tiered Pop Up Penguins

 Welcome friends!  I had a great time last night on a Zoom call with my SU! upline and 8 others in her downline group - so fun to "meet" them and put faces to names and craft together - for 3 hours!  :)  We all worked on our own projects and they were so diverse, love it!   For my zoom project, I created a multi-tiered pop up box card --- no surprise there, right guys?!  BUT, this one was on a much larger scale and needs a 6 1/8" square envelope, which I had to make myself, but with the help of my nifty envelope punch board , it was pretty easy... PRETTY being the operative word as I used some the same Whimsy & Wonder dsp from SU! as I used on my card!   I will include the measurements for making this card below my photos, so keep scrolling :)  The Whimsy & Wonder dsp has holographic striped paper that I used on the sides of my box.   These cute penguins and matching punch are bundled in the new Holiday Catalog, July - Dec. 2021, and so is the Whimsy & Wond

Tutorial - Box Cards W/O Dies

 Hello again!  I'm back with 2 more box cards using some brand new stamps and dies from the upcoming SU! Holiday mini catalog & SAB and a tutorial on how you can make these without using special dies! First I'll show you a card that uses special dies that make it super quick & easy to create the basic box base to showcase all your fun images, and then I will show you how you can make a very similar card without using the dies.  This is a fun new stamp set featured in the upcoming SU! Holiday Mini Catalog called "Penguin Place" - I bought the bundle, so it has a punch that goes with it to punch out the sitting/standing penguin outline, the white inner piece, and the feet.  I had to fussy cut the trees, gifts, hats & scarves and the sliding penguin.  This is one set I wish they had made a die set to match for all those smaller pieces.   The Box base is created with dies by  My Favorite Things  called " Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics ".  My

Multi-Layered Cube Card

Ok y'all, those who know me know I love a card challenge - especially fancy folds!  So when I saw this gorgeous card of Lavonne Schwendeman's I had to try it.  And as impressive as this style of card is, I prolly won't make another of these for a long while as it took me quite a long time to make.  But it was worth it for my daughter who's birthday is in a couple of weeks!  Maybe I'll make a (fall/winter) one for my other daughter who's birthday is next May, LOL!     I love how the sentiment and larger butterflies actually POP OUT away from the card base!   Here's a view from the top-ish.... The "Lovely Wishes" foam words are pink foiled on the front and are shiney when the light hits.  They are attached to clear window sheets that are then glued to the cardstock in front of them.   The flourishes were pretty flimsy, so I cut out 3 of each and glued together to make them more sturdy. Each size of butterfly is embossed with a different texture - th

Tutorial - Origami 4-Drawer Easel Card

 Happy Sunday crafty friends!  I was asked for instructions after posting pictures of this box card on a FB group, so here it is!   While I am not the original creator of the 4-drawer easel card that were all the rage 10 years ago, I thought of a way to create the drawers from designer paper ,  when others were creating it using cardstock.  Some had dies that cut the drawers and others were clever enough to come up with the correct measurements to cut and score and tape, but I couldn't wait to find what I was looking for so I just made a simple origami fold box for the drawers and wha-la!  It worked ... and is prettier than plain cardstock IMO.  :)   So I'm here to share it with y'all again, this time using Stampin' Up!'s Ornate Garden Suite (stamps, dies and paper!)   Supplies Needed: - (4) 6-inch pieces of designer series paper - (2) 4 ¾” coordinating designer paper (or can use same   as 6” pcs.) - (3) 8 ½ x 11” sheets of cardstock – can be same or different color
