Update: Excited to find my card among the winning cards! Thanks so much to DCWV!
Ever wonder what happens if you cut an angel in half?!?
It feels so so good to be back to my card making! I spent a lot of time browsing Pinterest and other web sites while my broken leg was healing these past five months. I saw a lot of paper dresses and wanted to try making one. I think the sketch from DCWV's challenge this month is the perfect forum for me to create my own paper dress.
I used DCWV's The Painted Petals Stack, pre-embossed A2 cards and the clear Adhesive Jeweled Sheet to create my card. I began by die cutting two angels. Then, I cut the dark top-half off. I used the chad from the lighter purple to create an inlaid skirt. I used a heart for the bodice and diamonds for the waistband. Then, in a nod to my grannie who always made sure I had a nice and noisy cancan when I was growing up, I used a yellow flower die to create a cancan of sorts for my dress.
There is still plenty of time to join in on the fun this month. Here's a link to the rules and a copy of the sketch we had to work with.
And, so far, nothing bad has happened from my cutting an angel in half, so grab your scissors or paper trimmer and cut away.
