This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a fun challenge – Bring on the Bling! Hop on over and take the challenge. I’d love to see your shiny creation.
This time of year always makes me think of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and her iconic little black dress. With New Year’s Eve coming up I know we’ll all have some sort of get-together and the little black dress is perfect for your cocktail or dinner party. Looking elegant is only a little black dress away. Inspired and in celebration of Audrey I made this dress card with rhinestones, silver paper and ribbon. I made a template, traced it in on Basic Black CS, cut it out with paper snips then ran it through my Big Shot with the Perfect Details swirl Texturz plate. I hope you can see the texture in the photo. I made the side ruffles out of vellum paper. I used Very Vanilla satin ribbon for the waist sash and made a rose also from the Very Vanilla satin ribbon and embellished the rose with a clear rhinestone. I’ll post a tutorial for the dress later this week.
I cut a Basic Black and silver paper layer. There is another Basic Black layer I punched the edge with the Scallop border punch. I also embellished with Very Vanilla and Black satin ribbon. I stamped the frame and sentiment with Versamark then embossed with silver embossing powder. The card is finished with three sizes of rhinestones.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
