Wedding Dress and Tuxedo Card


Isn't this a beautiful card?  I was blurfing (isn't that was blog surfing is called?) several months ago and came across a consultant with another company who had the original idea.  I used the basic idea but changed up the dress and tux.  I also antiqued the dress with a few swipes of Parchment Ink (a very pale peachy ink) after I sent it through the cuttlebug and embossed the white tuxedo shirt with the Candy Cane cuttlebug folder - I just rotated the piece until it lined up straight up and down on the lines instead of using the diagonal.  Unfortunately, I wasn't good about grabbing the blog site so if you are the consultant and come across this - let me know and I'll be happy to add your link to your original!  I loved using our self adhesive pearls to make the dress and tux look real.

This one is going to one of my husband's co-workers who is getting married next month.  Now I have to come up with a nice wedding gifty item to go with it!

Materials Used:
Embellishments:  Opaques Pearls
Other:  Cuttlebug Embossing Folders - not sure what the heavily textured one is called, Cream Satin Ribbon (Target)

Paige, this is so adorable! I want to go get that cuttlebug folder just for this reason :) Did you cut the dress yourself or use a template?

Jayma -

I cut the dress by hand using the card I saw as a reference. I tried looking for the site again when I posted this card but couldn't find it anywhere. If I come across her blog again I'll add another post to give her credit. She had the idea for the popped front panel on the dress. Try finding a paper doll dress and size it to your card front. I'd love to see it when you do one!
