Aren't you excited it's Friday!! Well I know I definitely am especially because I have a card I created for the new Moxie Fab World: I'm Sew Excited Challenge!!!
A bit about how this card came to be...
Inspired by a childhood dream: I think every little girl admires her mommy. Well I was no different and growing up I remember going into her room and seeing all the pretty things mommies have in there vanities like make-up of all colors and shapes, shoes of all kinds; flats, heels, boots and then there was the powder, oh how I loved that big fluffy powder pad (or however you call it) and then the perfumes... and if you grew up with a mom who knew how to sew (which I didn't) you'd get to see her creations on the maiden form and perhaps even get measured up for something pretty (this is where the dream part comes in) I always wished one of those pretty dresses on the form would be mine. I remember going to Manhattan and looking into those french stores and all the pretty dresses displayed on the windows would make my eyes glow as if enchanted by their beauty... how I dreamed I'd get to try one on. Well that dream did come true and I did get measured up and I did get to play pretty for a day; it was my wedding day!! But that's a whole different story ;)
Now for the card and some details... I used some fun materials for this one.
For the "mirror" I used a sheet of high gloss faux aluminum cardstock from Paper Source. Then To create the pretty frame I used a 4" paper doily. Which I cut in half then glued it to create an oval and then using my oval shape nestabilities cut out a frame. I then used pigment ink (dabbed right on to it)to add the coordinating color
Because I had different elements on the outside of the card and had sort of created a room theme I decided to add the sentiment on the inside. Sorry for the quality of this image I'll try taking a better shot ;)
And of course the highlight of this my card is the actual sweet little form. I used Lawn Fawn's sew lovely stamp set and dressed it up. I used tulle, silver pen and a measuring tape line rub-on which I adhered to vellum. I think it's so feminine and pretty.
I think my best friend (which was also my maid of honor way back when) will enjoy this card so much especially if I pair it up with some memories of that special day when we were princesses for a day :)
Thanks for coming by!! Enjoy your weekend.
