Mother's Day Card
Guess what I have for you today! Remember those wooden laser embellishments by Kaisercraft Cutter' Creek shared awhile back? I was able to get some of the Dress Forms and have a Mother's Day card made with them. I am loving these embellishments. They are so thin but still add a bit of dimension to your card.
Check out the cute dress forms you get in the package. Don't be surprised to see more projects featuring these cute dress forms. (If you are interested in these please let Kim at Cutter's Creek know, she can special order them for you. If there is enough interest, we may be able to convenience her to carry them in the store.)
Okay, on to my card. I started with a cream colored card stock card base cut and scored to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" My first mat is cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and it is from the Mod Squad Core'denations Cut and Emboss paper. I used the reverse side of one of the papers. To be frugal, I cut the base layer of my dress from the same piece of paper, I used the front side of the paper for the base layer. I cut the dress from the Nifty Fifties cartridge at 5 3/4". The patterned paper top layer for the dress is from the Howdy Doody My Minds Eye 6" X 6" paper pad. The patterned paper behind my dress is also from the same paper pad cut at 3 3/4" X 5". I inked the edges of all of my papers with some Antique Linen Distress Ink.
The dress form I used is the first on on the left in the picture above. I used some Oil Slick Glimmer Glaze to paint the legs on the dress form and the top little circle. (Glimmer Glaze is a special order item that I know Kim would be very happy to order for you if you are interested, just ask) I sprayed the remainder of the dress form with some Old Lace Glimmer Mist and inked it lightly with some Antique Linen Distress Ink.
I used some Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere my dress layers together and adhere them to the wooden dress form and then adhered the dress form to my card.
To finish my card, I added a piece of lace from my stash. I adhered the lace with some of the 1/8" Scor-Tape. I added a small pearl to the center of the belt area of the dress, and then 3 larger pearls to the lower side of the card. I stamped my sentiment with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
