For the Bride to be
I have a bridal shower luncheon to go to next Monday, so I got one of these beautiful die cut (the dress is cut out of the front of the card, but I have the shape pushed through to take the photo here) card from Creative Cuts and More this weekend (it will be on their website SOON). Oh my goodness, this is some of their Stardream "Opal" metallic paper and it is so luscious! Seriously I can't believe how gorgeous this paper is in real life. The photo just doesn't do this paper justice. It's smooth and creamy, good enough to eat....yummy!
The little dress piece is a separate shape and this little gown is addictive to design. I had so much fun putting accents on it I was sad when it was finished....I wanted to make more dresses! The pearls and rhinestones are also from Creative Cuts and come in a cool little kit with a tool to help apply these little gems. They do not come with adhesive, so you would need to use diamond glaze or I just used Tombo clear glue and it worked great! I added some narrow white sating ribbon and tied a bow on the backside, then draped the ribbon down the sides. I tried to keep this simple. The bride is doesn't like a lot of fuss, so less is more.
I will be working on cake boxes also from CC&M, hopefully this week for the luncheon as a center piece. I will get a picture of those when I finish to share with you all. I got them in the same gorgeous paper in two different shades...woo hoo!
Tomorrow is 3D Wednesday, so stop back by to see my altered one sheet box and don't forget to get your entry in today. You have until 9PM MST or -7GST.
