My neighbor asked me to make a card for her friend today. She's turning 50 so of course it had to be something special. I asked her a few questions and if her friend likes blues or pinks or what. She didn't want a black and white card. Or over the hill. So I asked if pinks and spring colors would be good. She said yes.
At first I was thinking flowers but when I did a little research online I saw the Pop Up Dress framelets being used on a few birthday cards and they looked so pretty I thought, "That's It!"
Here's what I came up with.
Some of the paper is retired but I used More Amore Specialty DSP 129309 from the mini catalog along with the Artisan embellishment kit 129328.
I cut out the dress form and then wrapped the ribbon around it and added one of the flowers from the flower trim ribbon. Love that stuff! I hope Stampin' Up! keeps it around. I use it a lot!
While outside watering some plants I notice my azalea bush. Just beautiful! The bees liked it too.
I really like how these treats turned out.I used the two tags die for the base, punched a hole for the ribbon, attached some Designer Series Paper and then used a glue dot for the chocolate bunny. The stamp is an older stamp that retired but you could use any stamp you have that says Happy Easter.
I also used some of the new flower ribbon on these by cutting off one flower and attaching it with a glue dot.
Description: Vintage dimensional flowers on strips of tulle. Approx. 5/8" wide. 2 yds. Vanilla. 126869 6.95
You can even color the flowers if you want. Check out this video I found on YouTube. You can skip to minute 4 for the coloring process. I also made this cute shaker card for my class last month.
We used the shaker frames 124155 to make the frame around the bunny. The stamp set is:
A Little Bit Of Spring Clear-Mount Stamp Set
I may make a quick step by step for this card to post online. Let me know if you would like to see that. Thanks for visiting! Jackie
Did you get a chance to see my new cabinets? I used the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - Provence. I can show you step by step if you want. I just have been busy lately. I did use the dark wax and the clear wax on these.
I still need to add the knobs I got from Hobby Lobby. (I'll get to it soon.) I did have the counter cleared off so it was a perfect time to take a picture.
