This week's challenge is to create a card that is not a traditional looking card. They want shapes!!! So I decided to use a template that I found a while back. My friend, Susan, asked me to make baby shower invitations for her neice's shower... she's having a girl! So I'm trying this out! I found this fabulous template at Stampington & Co.
I printed the template directly on the cardstock, which was an issue. The black edge showed and I spent an hour carefully trimming it away. Very time consuming.
I stamped and embossed the skirt, sleeves and hem of the dress. I realized AFTER I did all that that I should have cut some patterned paper and overlaid the template, but of course, I do everything the hard way.
I had to work hard to get good pictures of the hem of the pinafore, and none of them are great. We're a little windy today, so I couldn't go outside to take a picture. But when I was done with the card, it reminded me of many of the little dresses my 3 girls wore when they were little...good memories!
