Anyhow, back to my craft mode. Crafty Individual's June challenge is "A Summer's Ball" theme, it is up to your own interpretation and you must use one of their products. I have a few CI stamps in my stash; CI 346- dancing lady is one of their newer releases and it's one of my favourite CI stamps. I made a dance invitation using this stamp.
This criss cross card measures about 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I used a compas to draw the criss cross flaps. I top stitched and distressed all the paper edges with ink and distressing tool.
I stamped 2 images and colored the dancing lady with Copic markers. I fussy cut out one of the images and used it to decorate the invitation folder.
The stamp image has the dance program listed on the right hand side. I used a Spellbinder Romantic Rectangle die to cut out the stamp image and layer it over DP and cardstock and completed the tag with lace, ribbon, pearl string and a rose. The tag can be used as a bookmark.
I sprinkled some glitters on the dress but they don't show well in the pictures. I decorated the invitation folder with lace, diecuts, pearls, ribbon and paper roses. I also added a Tim Holtz small easel diecut to the back of the folder so it can stand up for display.
So, that;s it for today. I am ready for an afternoon tea now.
I will enter this card in the following challenges:
