Dressing Up!by Anne Harada, Former Guest Designer
I love dies that make "shaped" cards! I try to get my hands on as many of them as I can just because they're unique and a great surprise for the recipients!
These two dress-shaped cards were made with Frantic Stamper's "Kitchen Dress A2 Card Maker” die set and Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home collection. The 3-piece die set is extra fun to use because it comes with a die piece that makes lots of different little embellishments that you can add to your dresses! Just choose paper patterns for your dress pieces and the embellishments and start playing!
I designed the red dress like a kitchen apron dress by adding some "ties" to each side of the apron piece and tucked in the little rolling pin and wooden spoon images into the pocket (similar to the sample on the die packaging). I doodled in some stitch lines around some of the pieces and added a couple of tiny yellow buttons.
For the blue dress, I went with more of a child's springtime-dress design, with some lacy ruffles under the collar and on the sleeves and a couple of little country buttons as embellishments. What a fun way to use some of your favorite designer papers and small scraps!
