I am in love with this feminine dress...isn't it gorgeous!?
I think made and re-made this card about 4 times before I was happy with it. I felt like I couldn't get it to look the way it did in my head- has that ever happened to you? Well anyway, I continued to play around with everything until I ended up with this:
After all of that work, I love how it turned out! First I stamped a Hero Arts map background stamp with grey ink on my card base, and covered it with vellum. Then, I stamped a bunch of elements from Altenew's Vintage Flowers, and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I tried my best to get the colors to match the inspiration dress.
Once it was all arranged the way I liked it, I adhered it to the card with foam tape. Lastly, I added the sentiment, which is from Altenew's Sketchy Cities America.

This was a very quick and easy card to put together. I used two images from Fresh Lemon Digital Stamps to create a background, and printed it onto textured cardstock. Next, I stamped a sentiment from Altenew's Baby Zoo set onto peach cardstock and mounted it to the card with foam tape. The only other thing it needed was a strip of grey cardstock!
My second card is a lot more technique-y (yes! I made two cards!). Using Photoshop, I created a striped background from the Watercolor Digital Paper and printed it out. Then, I went to work on the flower. I used an image from Succulent Clipart Silhouettes to make a cut file for my Silhouette Cameo. Once the pieces were cut from white cardstock, I mounted them onto a super thick piece of plastic and cut it out by hand. It looks so cool in real life! I then stamped the sentiment (from Fresh Freesia) with grey ink, and mounted everything to a peach card base.

Lastly, if you didn't know, Tasnim and I just released 9 new stamp sets for Altenew! I've been posting my projects over on the Altenew Blog, but figured I would re-post them here in case you haven't seen them yet :) I have been out of town and very busy (more grad school work and other projects! lol), so I sadly haven't posted all my cards using all of the sets yet. Hopefully I'll get the rest up within a week or so!
