Change of A-Dress Card for TECC31
I can't believe I have been able to play Taylor's Cupcake Challenge (www.tayloredexpressions.blogspot.com) 2 weeks in a row. Maybe having Fridays as my day off now (instead of Mondays) is not such a bad thing afterall. I can get used to this! Jami let me borrow her new set "Humor in High Heels" this week so I can make SWAP cards for her upcoming new caty swap, so since this set was sitting out on my desk and I've been playing around with different color combinations for the swap (my job is to use the new bella colors, so this card definitely won't be my swap card), here we go....The card base is Basic Gray, then layered with DCWV Textured white, and then the DP of the pink houndstooth is from Creative imaginations; art warehouse; studio barn. It is also used to paper-piece the dress. The main image and the sentiment image are both stamped in SU Basic Gray ink on shimmer white paper. There is a small layer of Pretty in Pink, and then the Scalloped layer is Basic Gray again, but this time, stamped in Versemark with the SU Paisley BG stamp, and heat embossed. Thanks Jami for reminding us this week about that fun technique. The sentiment is layed onto a piece of "coaster" chipboard and popped up with foam tape. The buckle is something I've had in my stash for quite a while, probably from Michael's. The little button brads carry out the "fabric" theme (they are silver and white, even though some of them look black in the picture), as does the pink twill ribbon I bought from Taylored Expressions and a little snip of white organdy ribbon. An extremely fun card to make, and super fun sketch with so many possibilities. The only problem I see would be making "Change of address" cards in mass quantity to send to people if you really WERE moving... LOL... this would definitely not be the card to make. Maybe to congratulate someone on a new job, or something like that. Thanks for looking, and as usual, thanks Taylor for a fantastic challenge!
