Hello everyone, firstly we had some absolutely fabulous entries for the 'Add something Green' Challenge over at Ooh La La Creations last time. To see if you have made our top 3 please check the challenge blog.
The theme for the next fortnight is ...
'Lots of Folds'
For my design team card I used images and papers from both
Rather than going with fancy folds on the card shape I went for paper folding on my card
I folded a piece of A4 card to make an asymmetric card blank and then cut an aperture in the front flap.
I folded a piece of A4 paper which had been scored at one inch and half inch intervals to make a pleated 'curtain and stuck this over the aperture and then added thin frames cut out of black card.
I cut the tailor's dummy from kraft card and cut another from the black and white spotted paper which is from the 'Faithful Friends' CD. I trimmed the paper to fit the 'bodice' part of the dummy and then added a pleated skirt folded from a scalloped circle.
I trimmed the dress with lace, pearls and gems.
I added the sentiment and bow on the front with a few gems to finish.
Inside the card I added the DL insert from the 'dance petticoat' folder from the 'Shoes in Bloom' CD and also fussy cut one of the topper images to add to the bottom corner.
I added a panel to the back of the aperture to write a greeting on.
I finished teh back with another scalloped circle and a topper that I had trimmed with a plain circle die.
A beautiful card Ali, I love your paper pleating - such a great idea.ReplyDelete
Nice work Allison, I love that dress, very fifties and "Happy Days!" JxReplyDelete
Love your folded dress.ReplyDelete
Allison I love the idea of the pleated curtain in the aperture. Is your dummy a die cut....it's a fab idea and I wouldn't mind trying it out with my crafters here in Cyprus if that's ok with you. Hugs Wynn xReplyDelete
Little parcel of die cuts arrived today Allison. Thank so much and for the extra bits and bobs. I will be able to put them to good use. When I've done the project with my group I'll show you a piccie. Big hugs Wynn xReplyDelete
