Here comes the Bride! and Another Giveaway, too!

Thanks for playing...this giveaway is closed.


The fall wedding season is approaching and with it comes the need for invites for showers and wedding cards. Regina, from The Cutting Cafe has outdone herself with the creation of this ADORABLE dress card and envelope template! I can see this finished in the bridesmaid's colors for a thank you luncheon, as an invitation for a princess party, the possibilities are endless! She's even got an envelope designed to go with it as well as an option to print it with the invite information inside AND accessories. We know how important accessories are!

I decided to go totally bridal and innocent but be sure to check out the hot little black number Regina cooked up. VaVoom!

I cut out my card shape and the separate dress template then I ran the template through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I found these rolls of very fine netting (tulle) at JoAnn's a few months ago in the $ spot and though I didn't have a plan for them then...I knew I would some day, right?

I gathered and sewed a piece of the tulle across the bodice, covered it with a piece of white picot edged satin ribbon, added a stunning off white paper rose I picked up from 7kidscollegefund.com by punching a 1/16" hole and sticking the stem through. I cut the stem down a bit then taped it off. I added my tiny stick-on pearls from Michael's to the neckline and on the tulle. All that was left was to tape it all down on the card itself.

So simple, yet I think, so elegant.
What do you think?
Woo,hoo, ladies! Regina just said I can give this set away so you can make your very own pretty dress ! Just leave me a comment that includes your contact info (you will not be contacted unless you win) by Saturday morning. I will draw a winner then. Good luck!
