Dies R Us Inspiration Blog - Happy Wishes . . .

Hello dear friends . . .
Today I'm sharing a shaped card that is perfect for that Ballet dancer on your card list.  I must confess, I was a dancer (in my youth) ... my sister & I took ballet & tap for 13 years.  Must also confess we were both better at tap dancing then ballet!


I rarely make shaped cards but after seeing this beautiful Amy Designs die set in person, I knew exactly what I wanted to create and share with you today.  I hope you find inspiration in my creation.

Dies used are:


Amy Design - Dies - Wild Animals - African Circle


Cheery Lynn Designs - Arabesque Ballerina


Impression Obsession - Dies - Greeting Set


My card began by die cutting the large outside die 'slightly off the fold of my A6 card' to create my base card.


Next I die cut a panel using the same die but from beautiful bright pink foil paper.
The next largest die was cut from white card stock and
the ballerina was cut from a lighter pink foil paper.

Although not photographed, I die cut the body of my ballerina
from a scrap of glitter paper and did a little fussy cutting to create
my ballerina's dress.


After adhering the doily panel to the background foil panel,
I added dimensional tape to the back of my ballerina before adhering 
her to the front of my card.


Lastly I added the sentiment (also die cut from the sparkle paper) and white
Nuvo crystal drops.  Viola!
