Just for You

Okay this is definitely the last card for today! I am suppose to be in the craft room packing a few supplies as we are going down to Neils' parents for a few days - well I ended up making yet another card! I was looking around the Moxie Fab blog and came across the Tuesday Trigger - now normally the photo they put up doesn't trigger anything with me! but when I saw this one literally sparks flew, light bulbs illuminated and fireworks exploded!!! Not only did I like the dress but instantly I was attracted to the curved layers and thought I could make a dress like that!

At first I thought I could also use similar colours in the papers but then I thought that Secret Crafter had a great challenge this week that I wanted to do so I decided to incorporate their challenge of black and white and came up with the following card.

a close up of my layered dress

I have cut circles out of various black and white paper and layered them just like the dress. The bodice of the dress is a stamp from Lawn Fawn 'swimsuit season'. To hide the join between the 2 I created a black belt and applied liquid pearls to it.

I loved how the card turned out and might make another one but use more colours.

materials - AC black and white cardstock; Bo Bunny 'gift of love' papers; Lawn Fawn 'swimsuit season' stamps, Grant Archival 'celebrate' stamps; Stazon jet black ink; Provocraft circle dies, dot embossing folder; Francheville 'audrey' ribbon, 1/8" flower eyelet; Kaisercraft black pearl; Ranger white opal liquid pearls.

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your week.
