Dress Cards

This is the blog post my mother's been waiting for.  Dress Cards!  These cards were designed using Stampin' Up Dress Up framelits, DSP, polka dot embossing folder and Glimmer Paper, and Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities.

Below is a cute black and yellow polka dot dress.  The black top was run through my Big Kick using the polka dot embossing folder.  The accent is a flower button with a sticky pearl on top.

Below is a black and white club dress.  I used the silver glimmer paper and cut the cleavage out with the large heart punch from Stampin Up.  I used a black ink pad to make the bottom black.  You can see it's still sparkly though.  Then I glued both pieces back together.  Three sticky silver gems accent the neck.

Below is all red glimmer paper with five sticky red gems for the necklace.  The polka dot paper is actually a clear plastic sheet with black polka dots on it.  It's neat paper because it's kind of shiny and it can turn any solid color paper into polka dot paper.  The red background paper was run through in the polka dot embossing folder.

This is the dress that started it all.  The silver glimmer paper bride's dress.  The necklace is four sticky pearls and one sticky silver gem.  Attach lace a ribbon and a flower.  The background red & white polka dot paper is much more complimentary in person.  It's a lot less pink looking than the picture shows.  It's gorgeous!

This is what I would refer to as a "hot mess."  It was supposed to look like a ruffle club dress.  Instead it looks like it's already been to the club, drunk, and barfed in the bathroom.  It's a little prettier in person, but not much.  

Those are the dress cards!  So much fun to make!
