A Girly Dress of Snippets


Today I have a card with a real "girly" theme for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday "Special lady" challenge. I used a SU! framelit die for the dress and made the skirt portion entirely of snippets. I used pieces of blue and lavender snippets, embossed them with a Swiss Dots ef, and then punched flowers with a MS hydrangea punch. I pressed them onto the lower portion of the dress with a dot of glue, shaping them first with an embossing stylus into a piece of foam, and dotted the center of each flower with liquid pearls. I finished the dress by adding a piece of ribbon around the waist. I layered it on Spellbinder petite ovals & scalloped ovals and embossed the background with a TH damask ef. I'm thinking of sending this to my granddaughter for an Easter card, since she loves to dress up in frilly dresses.

I'm entering this into the Snippets Playground #166 - must use snippets

I'm also entering this into the ScrapyLand #13 - which is "anything goes" using any brand of die that ScrapyLand sells. I'm using Spellbinders petite ovals/scalloped ovals.

Thanks for stopping by, and as always, I wish you a wonderful day!

Carol

These are some of the best looking snippets I've ever seen. Very pretty card and if your granddaughter loves to dress up she will adore this card. Hope you are having a bit warmer weather than we are. It is 8° with wind chills below zero, but it is going to be 50° on Wednesday. Can't wait.

This is a beautiful card Carol, I have always loved that dress but never got the die. I love how you placed tiny flowers all over the bottom half of the dress, so pretty! And it looks like there is a corsage on the shoulder of the dress too, so sweet. I think this card would be perfect for a granddaughter who loves to dress up in frilly dresses!! Hugs, Brenda
