Yes, I did make a card and yes you can say FINALLY!! It even has a tutorial to go with it.
I got my inspiration for this card from this picture. There is even a tutorial on how to make it HERE !! First off, I absolutely LOVE pencil skirts, they can really slim aperson down, and they are sexy without being showy. Add in the lace and you have a feminine SHOWSTOPPER.
I have had this idea for quite sometime to put this on a card (because I don't sew), and saw someone else (maybe Splitcoast ??) use punches for a lacey look. I decided to try my hand at it, and came up with a card that is perfect for many occasions - bridal showers, engagements, christenings, birthdays, baptisms, etc. The one I made is for my Mother In Law's birthday.
OK, now get out your punches and create along with me!
I am sure that you could use other brands or ones that are similar, but these are the Stampin' Up! punches that I have and am going to use. Find what works in your room and play along.
The next layer is the ribbon punch and it is punched into plain vanilla card stock. I glued it over the top edge of the DSP layer to cover it. I punched 3 strips of each kind of paper and then glued them in the same order up the rest of the card.
And here is my finished card. Doesn't it totally go with the skirt up top?!? I added one of my FAVORITE FLOWERS and some organza ribbon. I also stamped a sentiment in the same color that I sponged the flower in, pink pirouette.
I know my MIL will absolutely LOVE this card, since she is very into the Victorian style. Hope you have fun, tootles and happy stamping!!
