Welcome to Day 8 of the Artisan Entry Blog Hop!
This is the last project I put together before sending my entries to SU! It was a card I had put together based on a sketch a few weeks ago and that I hadn't time to blog. I thought it was pretty and interesting enough to become my last sample, but I redid the card to improve on it and make it as perfect as I could.
The dress is from the Love & Laughter set. I stamped it on Very vanilla cardstock, embossed it with Clear embossing powder and handcut it out, before dressing it up with the beautiful lace from the Artisan Embellishments kit and adding small pearls and a Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon sash.
The background for the dress was created with a tag cut with the Two Tags die out of Wisteria Wonder Designer paper (In Color Designer paper pack). On it, I added a piece of Soft Suede cardstock die-cut with the Lattice die and covered with Champagne Mist glimmer paint. The vanilla doily is a die-cut I got from the Boutique Boxes kit. The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with Pewter embossing powder (my favorite) on Wisteria Wonder cardstock. A heart button from the Bitty Buttons pack was added at the bottom of the wisteria tag and decorated with a rhinestone and a Jumbo pearl was added to the sentiment banner.
The background was embossed using the Elegant Lines embossing folder and I added pearls in the crooks of the scrolls.
The remaining tag was used to decorate the inside of the card, along with a circle punched out of vellum and flowers from the same stamp set embossed in Pewter embossing powder. The bottom of the vanilla cardstock was die-cut with an Edgelits die and embossed with the matching folder, and I added Wisteria Wonder hearts in each scallop, not reinking for the second heart to get a paler color. A piece of Victoria lace trim was added underneath the scallops, and the cardstock was spritzed with Smooch Spritz.
