Bridal Shower Card!

This has to be the cutest bridal shower card!!! I love the dress on this and it was very easy to do too. I didn't have the Sizzix Large Scallop die cut so I used the largest Nestabilities scallop I had and it worked just fine. Just use what you have. I couldn't see myself buying that large scallop just to make dresses. I have not had a use for it yet so I am holding off until I can find more than one or two used for it to justify me purchasing it!!!

Anyway, I used the large Nestabilities scallop and cut it out using some old flowered vellum that Stampin' Up! use to sell. I didn't even know I still had some!!! And then I cut another scallop piece out of Pink Pirouette card stock. The vellum alone wasn't bold enough to stand out against the card stock.

To do the dress I did cut a practice piece out and made a template. Actually I ended up making two because I wasn't happy with the first one. The waistline was down too far. I cut out one side and used that piece for a template for the other side so they would be fairly semicircle. I cut the vellum and card stock separately and then I taped them at the waist where it wouldn't show.

I tied the ribbon around it and added a rhinestone brad. Cute touch, huh?? Not my idea. None of this was my idea. I saw it on SplitCoastStampers. It was a card by Eileen LeFevre.

When I laid my eyes on it I knew I HAD to make one. And I really did need one. I forgot about a bridal shower that I NEEDED a card for. This card was actually pretty quick to make. And I wish I would have gone back to SplitCoast to view Eileen's card again, I would have used the oval punch and stamp like she did too!!! I did my words on the computer and they will have to do since the card goes in the mail tomorrow morning. UGH!!!

Isn't this such a fun idea? Wouldn't that dress be great for a girls night out invitation too??? I'm sure there's lots of other ideas you can use that dress with!!!

But for me I needed a bridal shower card and that is what I got!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting with me today,
Wanda
