Purple Wedding Shower
I don't know about you, yes YOU (other crafters!), but in the pre-Cricut age, I acquired quite a collection of Sizzix die cuts. It was the best invention since sliced bread! I must admit that since buying my Cricut, my poor Sizzix dies are under-utilized...and are gathering dust, but I hate to get rid of them because they come in handy! This wedding dress card is a perfect example!
I dusted off the Dress & Accessories big red die, by Rob & Bob Studio, to create this gorgeous wedding dress. I used a crisp white for the gown, then cut a glittered vellum overlay. I also used some white ribbon to affix around the waist. I used a metal sheet to cut the dress form top and bottom, and attached wtih Zots. For the word "bride", I found a leftover rub-on from when I created our wedding album, then attached a metal embellishment with two silver brads over the word. In the lower right corner, I punched white and vellum flowers, using a hand punch, and attached to the card using a 1/16 eyelet setter and white eyelets. I stamped the same "congratulations" on the inside of the card, as I used on the envelope. I also added a beautiful wedding cake stamp on the envelope, and used a violet water-color pencil and a SU blender pen, to highlight the flowers. ~Hoppy Crafting!
Kindergarten teacher by day, and self-proclaimed crafting nightowl. I enjoy long walks with my Gypsy, iced mochas, and salivate over the newest papers, embellishments, Stampin' Up products, and Cricut cartridges available. While I LOVE my job as a kindergarten teacher, I need a creative outlet in my downtime. For me, this comes in the form of scrapbooking, cardmaking, cake decorating, and other miscellaneous crafts. I am a woman who is forever 29. Artist. Married with furry and slimy children (cats, dogs, & fish). And, in case you can't tell by the blog name, I'm obsessed with frogs. :o) I'm ready to try new things...let's see where this journey takes me!
