Wedding Shower Card

In honor of all the hard work Denise did on the invitations, I decided to work on the card for her sister-in-law-to-be for the shower. I used the wedding colors (black, white and lavender) and created this little card. I used the lavender cardstock as the base and used some Stampin' Up rub ons for the floral part. I used the Stampin' Up stamp from the Happily Ever After set and stamped it in black on the lower portion of the card. I cut the oval for the background for the dress using a circle cutter then embossed it with a curvy line motif on a Fiskars texture plate. I used the Crop-A-Dile to punch two hole in the crease of the card and set 2 large black eyelets. I threaded through black, white and a lavender see-thru ribbon and tied them in a bow. I hot-glued a string of faux pearls around the edge of the black oval. I used a dress punch to make the dress, and embellished it with a 3-d embossing gel, and sprinkled lavender and white glitter on it. Once dried, I used a 3-d glue tab to position it on the black piece. And there you have it! I wish I could get better pictures to really show the detail and proper colors but my camera keeps dying and the scanner is just plain difficult! Oh well! Have a great one and I'll probably be back with a new card this weekend! Thanks for peeking :)
