Classy and Fabulous

And at last it is Friday! I still haven't figured out how February manages to slow time down quite the way it does. But Friday it is, and I decided to make a card JUST FOR FUN, and link up to this week's Friends with Flair at Unity. 



Love this fun set. To me the dress just calls out to be paper-pieced, so I picked my paper first and the card developed from there. I also tried embossing with a metal die for the first time, and I think I'll be doing that again! I purposely cut out the sentiment asymmetrically because, let's face it, if I'd tried to be symmetrical, it wouldn't have worked anyway. ;) 
I'm hoping this will call back my creative mojo, which obviously migrated for the winter because I haven't seen it for the longest time. That hasn't stopped me from having a card ready for tomorrow's second Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge, though. Come back and check it out! 

Supplies: white and yellow Bazzill textured cardstock, Memory Box Brioche patterned paper, Unity Undeniably You stamps, Memento Luxe gray flannel & Versamark ink, Zing clear, Wow ultra-fine white & Ranger rich red embossing powder, Hero Arts scalloped frame die, May Arts ribbon, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

Now I need to try that frame technique, cuz it looks soooo awesome! What a fantabulous card, Lindsey! I agree, that dress totally needed to be paper pieced!

If your creative mojo is gone then I can't wait to see what you do when you have it. This is lovely! Hugs~Patti

Love this card and especially the colors. I did the metal die embossing by chance about a year ago when I tried to cut out AND emboss at the same time (always trying to take a shortcut). Have loved it ever since.
