Bridal Shower Card

Saturday, March 26, 2011

First, I want to thank all of those who are new followers and give a big THANKS to Momo for her link up!  I appreciate everyone who visits me :)  It has been such a busy week and I didn't get as much done as I wanted or needed too.  I did, however, make a wonderful card for a bridal shower I attended this morning.  I used the Forever Young cartridge again.  I think it turned out super cute, but I'd love to hear your feedback!
The designer paper did not have glitter on it originally.  I used glitter glue and a toothpick, to give it some sparkle! I'm not sure how well it shows up in the picture.  I also used a piece of vellum (this was my first time) on top of the dress.  I found that you have to be super careful when embossing vellum because it cracks very easily.  I ended up only using my A and B (just one) Cuttlebug plates along with a little bit of junk mail to emboss it.  If anyone has any tips on this, I could definitely use some :)  This dress didn't have a layer feature I liked, so I just cut the dress base twice at different sizes.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
What I used:
* Black Cardstock - cut 8.5" x 5.5" scored in half
* Designer Paper (by The Paper Studio) cut 5.25" x 4"
* Black Cardstock - cut 4.75" x 3.5"
* White Cardstock
* Clear Vellum
* Light Pink Ribbon
* Diamond Glittler Glue (from Wal-Mart)
* Love Stamp - Dollar spot purchase
* Martha Stewart Sterling Embossing Powder
* VersaMark Embossing Ink Pad
* Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
Cuts:
* Dress (bottom w/ white paper) -Forever Young cut at 7.5"
* Dress (top layer w/ vellum) - Forever Young cut at 7"

I have a lot of cards/projects to accomplish over the next couple of weeks.  Hopefully it won't take me so long to post the next time.  Be sure to check back in a few days! *~*Thanks for stopping by*~*

This turned out really pretty. Now you want to know something funny? I have a piece of vellum laying on my work table that I was/am planning to emboss. Thanks for the warning about it cracking. Have a great weekend.

Love your card. I like using just the dresses too. It's almost like playing Dress-up. I use the Forever Young Cart a lot. I had it out this time...but had major creative block.
Thanks
