Creative Cuts & More Dress Card Two Ways




So, I made a card today...

The is the same dress die cut card as my wedding card from a couple of weeks ago, and the same Ice Silver cardstock as well. I wanted to post the first one again so you could get an idea of how different these cards can be. Imagine the possiblities with all the cardstock choices CC&M offers!

For my second version, all I did was attach a piece of Heidi Grace flocked paper to the inside front of the card. It looks pretty on the inside as well because this paper's backside shimmers! The glitter dots were easy to make. I put a small glue dot on each scallop, then adhered an American Traditional Designs Dome Sticker UPSIDE DOWN. Now my dots have an exposed sticky surface. Of course the only thing to do in a case like this is to cover the circles with Doodlebug Sugar Coated Glitter in Beetle Black. I used these ATG stickers instead of glue dots because glue dots aren't perfectly symetrical, and I wanted perfect for this card. I added a Doodlebug Jewel in the middle of the Offray satin ribbon.  It's hard to see in the pic, but it's a nice touch IRL.

For the inside, I used an Art Accents word sticker, and the same DB glitter. This was a very quick card! Wouldn't it be cute for a prom invite or a Sweet Sixteen party?
