Of Corsets Your Birthday
Bbrrrrrrrrrrrr how cold is it today too cold. I hope you are all wrapped up warm and toasty inside today. Today's card is a corset card I made for a friends 40th birthday.
This card started life as an A5 card blank. Holographic mirror board was cut slightly smaller than the card to create a mat for the topper. Next blue card was embossed using polka dot 'that special touch masks' by Ali Reeve. A piece of Centura Pearl card stock in blue was then cut into a circle using spellbinders circles dies. This was then matted on to the other blue mat. The corset was stamped onto fantasy film using Staz-on ink pad and Creative Expressions stamp set 'Frilly Things'. This was then ironed as per the product instructions. Once cooled it was cut out. I pierced the lacing up holes of the corset and threaded a very thin ribbon through it to give it texture. This was then adhered to the blue circle mat.
For the sentiment mirror card was cut to size. Two pre-bought wire and beaded flowers were then attached on either side of this. In the centre the sentiment was stamped onto white card stock and die cut using spellbinders dies, a mat was also cut out of blue card stock and these were layered up. Below the sentiment a strip of blue paper was rippled using a rippling machine and adhered across the bottom of the card. On top of this was placed some ribbon that I had ink a message on Happy birthday using the Xyron Design Runner.
I hope you like this card as much as my friend and I do. xx Hazel
