Something Different



This post is a little something different, because it is not a Tilda card. Shocking isn't it? My daughter had first communion the first weekend of May. Above is her picture in her adorable little dress and pearls. Below is the card I made for her. I was making a clear card for a card


exchange, so I had a piece of transparency already cut, so I decided to use it for her card. I layered some different patterned papers and stamped some flourishes on it with staz on ink. I cut the dress from one of the cricut Disney princess cartridges and cut the arms off to make it look more like her dress. For detail, I added some little Kaiser Craft pearls to the waistline and topped the card with some petaloo daisies. I think it turned out very elegant and sweet just like Ainsleigh looked in her dress.

Oh, your daughter looks so SWEET! I love the card and am inspired to play with transparencies. I've seen several great ideas but have been too skittish to give it a try. But, I LOVE how your card came together!

That is adorable. Both the pic and the card. I always think I want to create a clear card, but I guess I'm just chicken :-)
