Hello! If you are looking for my Cricut 360 post, please scroll down or click HERE. Unity FWF can be found HERE.
I made this for this weeks Moxie Fab world Tuesday Trigger - I fell in LOVE with the trigger this week! Something about it just spoke to me...and I actually struggled to make something that I felt was worthy of how much I loved it! The first card I made is below...before I deconstructed it because I just wasn't happy with it! Here is the actual final product:
And here is the trigger - isn't it fabulous?
I tore, inked, and taped the layered strips of patterned cardstock onto plain cardstock. Then I printed off the dress from the trigger picture above, traced it onto vellum, cut it out, and used it as my template. I cut it in half, tilted it a bit to the side, and cut the dress out of my layered paper. Added a bit behind for the back of the dress, and ribbon for the straps. Attached it with pop-dots to my plain card, and added a sentiment from Unity Stamp Co.
And here is where I started. I cut this dress out with my Cricut, put my layered paper behind the cutout, added some machine stitching, a sentiment, and some stick on pearls. The dress just didn't seem right though - too princessy! And the kraft paper wasn't quite right either. And the pearls weren't quite the right color...and the sentiment just didn't fit where I wanted it to, so it was floating in a kind of random place. Anyway - I am SOOOO much more happy with the finished project! What do you think? Was it worth the redo?
I also think this fits well with the Papercrafts August Gallery 2011 celebrating girlfriends! I love the friends that I know I can trust to tell me if the dress REALLY looks good on me, and that they won't say it if it isn't true!!!
