Here Comes the Bride.


How could I resist trying a Wedding Card with the Dress Framelits?
I couldn't of course!
(click on photo to enlarge)
This card was inspired by one I saw by Petronella.
I just had so much fun making it.
I used a small piece of the beautiful lace in the Artisan Embellishment Pack for the bodice.
It was so pretty I didn't want to hide any of it so decided this wedding gown would be a drop waist style, with the lovely flower trim it looks very "frothy" doesn't it?
Then I went a bit crazy with the pearls but I think it works. hehe.
I love the peek through oval window. Here is a look inside for you. I have used Happy I do Day from the Word Play Stamp Set and the Music Notes Wheel.
Note that you need to cut another dress form for the back of your dress as it shows through on the inside and you don't want bits of lace and ribbon looking messy from the other side.


LEST WE FORGET..
                       

Did you have a good ANZAC Day yesterday. The weather was certainly perfect.
Every year for a long time now we have gotten up at 4am (Yes that is what I said! haha,) and driven half a sleep, cold and in the dark to the Dawn Service at Cleveland. Which usually starts at 5.30am.
It is a really lovely time and a beautiful service. A time to remember all those who have served and do serve this wonderful country in such a courageous way. A time to honour those who have fought and died to uphold our freedom.
Anyway would you believe this year we didn't go. I am so sad about that. I had one of those nights I just couldn't sleep and was still awake at 4am. I knew if I went I would be a mess so decided it was better to stay home this year. sigh.
I did fall asleep about 5am and woke at 10am!

Have a good weekend and please pop back again next week. Shall I try your patience and show yet another Dress Form Card?????? Hmmmm?????? hehe.
I do have a cool vintage one I want to show.

Until next time. Keep those comments coming. I love hearing from you.

  1. Beautiful card Vicki. Keep them coming, I love the dress up framelits. Better order more of those Flower trims too, seeing as they aren't carrying over to the new catty if we can go by the US one.

  2. OMG Vicki, I don't have the stuff to make this wedding card but wish I did for my sweet niece that is getting married the end of this month. Absolutely love it. I still haven't found any place to live.
