She Believed . . . All Dressed Up Card

I am having so much fun with the All Dressed Up Bundle in the Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog!  I just love all the different possibilities for creating great projects with these products -- and especially all the different dresses you can create with the Dress Up Framelits.  Here's a card I created for a recent swap.  For the outside, I started with a Sahara Sand base, which I cut using the Card Base Pop 'n Cuts.  Then, I cut a liner for the card using Very Vanilla and the Dress Form Pop 'n Cuts inserted in the Card Base.  Stampin' Up! has a great video, showing you just how to do this here.  

Before I adhered the card base and liner, I used my new Borders Scoring Plate for the Simply Scored Tool, and embossed a scalloped border near the bottom of my card front.  I added a layer of Very Vanilla and on top of that a piece of Fan Fair Designer Series Paper, on which I stamped a sentiment from the Feel Goods stamp set (Spring Catalog, page 21).  The ribbon is from the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Buttons Pack (Sale-a-Bration).

However, my favorite part of this card is on the inside:

I die cut a dress from Red Glimmer Paper, gave it a satin ribbon sash (with the Sycamore Street ribbon again) and a flower (Pink Pirouette punched with the flowers from the Itty Bitty Punches Pack, and secured with a mini silver brad):

The dress is on a Basic Gray dress form, and I layered another piece of Fan Fair Designer Series Paper between the card liner and base to look like a fancy wallpapered background.   I also stamped the Very Vanilla with the wreath image from Collage Curios.  I used Pink Pirouette, so the color is very subtle, but I think it really helps dress up the card.   

The sentiment is from the All Dressed Up stamp set, stamped in Island Indigo, and punched out using the Decorative Label Punch.  It is adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals; however, I also sponged very lightly around the edges with Island Indigo for even more dimensional effect.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

This is so darn cool, Michelle!!! Love the dramatic shift from soft subtle on the front to the dynamic regal color inside! Nice work! Marlene C.
