Playing Dress Up!
Catchy title, huh? I never was one for playing dress up when I was young but I have to admit that I love shopping and I love fashion so this Framelit caught my attention in the Spring Catalog. There is a coordinating stamp set and Pop Up card form as well. Check them out HERE. I learned a few things about this project that I want to share with you.
- After you've die cut the dress and the form place your adhesive strategically. The first time I made one I put adhesive straight down the front of the dress form – a big no, no. I recommend putting adhesive on the back side of the shoulders of the dress and then putting a strip of adhesive down the waist of the dress form, down, towards the bottom. Since the dress is larger than the form I don't recommend putting adhesive on the dress itself since it will 'hang off the back'.
- The button was created using the Sweet Buttons Embosslit. I love the fact that Embosslits emboss AND cut!
- Cut 1 1/2" of ribbon and put a glue dot on each of the raw ends and hide those to the back of the dress. That's one tiny waist!
- Notice how I only used half of the Curly Label punch for my greeting? Experiment with your various punches and use only half. You will still have the impact of the punch image without competing with the card design on cards with more detail on the front.
- I sponged around the edges of the vanilla cardstock.
