Show Us Your Shape at OCC

Hello and Happy Saturday to you! Hope the first full week of 2012 has been a good one for you. :) It's time for another challenge over at Our Creative Corner and our hostess this week is the lovely Vicki Burdick:
"Show Us your Shape"
Shaped cards. Anything but a square or rectangle.You can find so many cute templates on the internet or use a die or cut file (and your imagination) and show us your shapes!!

I came upon a super-cute, dress template at Stampington & Company. Click the site name for the FREE dress template, along with lots of others. I started out by printing the template on a 8- 1/2" x 11" piece of Blushing Bride card stock, cut it out and scored where directed. Then, because I really like fussy-cutting (*insert sarcastic tone here*), I added more layers of DSP for the front and inside of the card. That dress needed some girly flair, even if it meant more cutting! I just love the new Twitterpated DSP from the Occasions Mini Catty. It looks very shabby-chic and what goes better with "shabby" then lace, ruffles and pearls? 
The layered ruffles add extra dimension to the card. I adhered the ruffled Chantilly Lace Trim under the DSP using Sticky Strip. I tried to get those ruffles even...I almost succeeded. Ugh! :) Then, I stuck down the Blushing Bride Pleated Satin Ribbon over the top and wrapped it around all the way through the inside of the card, for a clean finish.
Here is the inside of the card, with a sentiment on layered punches. The edges inside of the card were sponged with Pear Pizzazz ink and then I added some Dazzling Details glitter glue to trim the dress. (I had to get some sparkle in there somewhere, right?) This could also be a cute card for a baby shower invite or a birthday card for a little lady.
Thanks so much for stopping by! The rest of the gals on the Design Team created some awesome projects, as always. I hope you will stop on over to the Our Creative Corner site to check them out and to play along with us this week.  


Have a very HAPPY day! :)
