Butterfly Dress

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all ok and enjoying this nice sunny weather, it makes us all feel alot better when we see a bit of sun.

Today I am showing you a card I recently made for a sample on our shows on Create and Craft, if you managed to see our show on Tuesday of this week you will have seen it on there.

Here is what I have used :

Black card
Dreamees Dress stamp set
Dreamees cd rom Pretty Projects
Black embossing powder
Versa mark ink pad
Collall glue
Spider web
Black and white pearls

I have used papers from the Pretty Projects cd available here , I  used black card and spider web also lace and ribbon from my stash.

I used a square card blank in black, I then matt and layered the papers and black card to the sizes I needed, arranged them on the base card. I then embossed the dress stamp, tiny butterflies and sentiment all from the same stamp set available only from Create and Craft at the moment  here . I put the spider web between the layers to give a bit of interest. I added lace and a bow before adding the topper.
I used the dress as the topper of the card and arranged the tiny butterflies down the side of the dress flapping the wings a little.
I then just cut some circles of the patterned paper and black card and made the swirl roses, also added a little pearl into each one, added a few black pearls for interest on the right hand side of the topper. I then finished the card off with a matt and layer sentiment flag.

Thank you so much for looking .

Have a lovely weekend.
