Wedding Dress Card

Well, this card took waaay more time than I would have ever guessed!  I wanted it to be very elegant, and I honestly feel I got there.  I'm not sure if I should put the title "Congratulations" on it or not.  I don't have to give it to the girl for over a month so I still have time to decide.  I just wanted to put to paper the idea I had as quickly as possible so I didn't forgot it!

The dress is from Tie the Knot cartridge.  When I saw it, I thought of those old fashioned dresses you would see in the movies.  I used Martha Stewart Elegant Cakes cartridge to make the loops.  (See, I told you it was elegant!)  lol! I cut them down and layered, layered, layered!  The 1/4" that I cut off of each, I used to make the quill flowers.  I just cut them to 2.5 - 3" long, coloured the edges blue  and twirled using my CuttleBug quilling pen.  I used Pagoda cartridge and cut out a batch of apple blossoms for the petals under the flowers.  The petals needed to be tiny and these worked great!  I added ribbon and a flower brad to the center of the dress.  I glittered the upper portion of the dress.

Okay, I have to say, I'm tooting my own horn over this dress!  It came out perfectly and I absolutely love it!  It's so cool when an idea comes together!

I put a couple of layers of paper, the blue designer paper under the dress is K & Co.  The white cs is from Bazzill and the dark blue is SU!  The white layer I embossed with my CB.  I made the roses and leaves on the top from Pagoda.  I then topped them with glitter mist I made with water and Perfect Pearls and glued them on.

I used one more in my way to using all of my carts:  Pagoda

Thanks for stopping by!
