All Dressed Up

Hi everyone! Not Sunday again - it's just coming round too fast and here we are half way through 2013!  Scary, isn't it?  So are you doing anything special today?  Not only that, it's a month on from the last crop I attended, a whole 4 weeks down the line - where did May go?  So as you read this, I'll be at a 12 hour crop at Parkside and I'm keeping my fingers crossed the weather will stay fine so we can still have our BBQ!!!

Remember the triple swing card I made which you can see here .  I had lots of Calypso Coral ovals left over from the cut outs so being eco-friendly, I decided to use one on this card instead of throwing them away.  This is a birthday card I made for the lovely Carrie - by the way, she's Head Honcho organising the crop together with her lovely sisters and her fab Mum at Parkside.

I took a piece of Very Vanilla and trimmed the front using the large scallop edgelit, then embossed with Delicate Design EF and inked the raised pattern with Calypso Coral.  I cut a dummy from the Dress Up Framelits in Early Espresso, and another out of canvas discarding the stand and neck to create a dress.  The canvas dress was sponged with  Calypso Coral, a pattern stamped in Early Espresso from Tiny Tags stamp set and I cut out the neckline and added some pearls for a necklace.    I used Calypso Coral ribbon for the belt, and daubed some ink on the flower before attaching with a glue dot. 

On the Calypso Coral oval, I stamped images from Established Elegance in Early Espresso.  This is one of the stamp sets retiring, so if you like it - better get it now before it disappears for good!

For the inside of the card, I stamped sentiments from Bring on the Cake stamp set and adhered a strip of Tea for Two DSP to dress the card.   

I'm glad to report Carrie loved the card!
