I’ve gotten a bunch of questions about how I did this, so here are some step-by-step photos:
It has been a long time since I’ve gone to a wedding shower… and somehow I’ve gone from one of the excited young women in the wedding party (or friend of the bride) to one of the old lady invites–friend of the parents! The young bride is just a sweet and beautiful girl and it seems like yesterday that she was in high school. I wanted to make a special card for her and it has been a very long time since I’ve sat down and actually made a card for an occasion. It was a very nice feeling when she announced–‘Oh this has to be from Amy’ when she pulled the card out of the gift bag [warm fuzzy feeling–card was appreciated]!
So, I finally got to use my ‘All Dressed Up’ framelits dies! You can see below the one that is the ‘form’ (neck/shoulders/body with ‘stand’–cut out of Naturals Ivory paper) and the other for the actual dress (in white and embossed) and that I added two of the lace doilies for the skirt that are a special order item in the Occasions Catalog. And of course lots and lots of Pearls!!! In fact the necklace was made with the pearl strips that are all attached. I cut a strip of 5 pearls and easily peeled and pressed them on!
Those of you coming to my StampersXpress class for April… we will be making that card! So, click here to sign up… weddings and graduations are right around the corner–you won’t want to miss this! Will I see you there?
