What's not to love about this fabulous new set? I just adore the two classy ladies and could resist using one on this card.
Classic Black cardstock base and also a "Red Devil" mini mat from the Poppy Cardstock Collection. Then I layered a few pieces of patterned paper from the April 123 Create Kit - "Stationary Noted".
April's 123 Create Kit
Then I began to create my focal image. First I cut two Tailor-made Classic Keyhole die cut shapes from Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, also die cutting an oval inside one of them. Then I traced the inside of the oval and positioned my super classy girl image from the new Glamour Girls stamp set, stamping it using Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink.
I stamped and fuzzy cut her dress using some fun polka dot paper from the April 123 Create Kit - "Stationary Noted". To create her black veil, I took a piece of white tulle ribbon I had, inked it up with Staz-On ink and then cut the same shape of her veil in the image and then created a tail to tuck under the flower in her hair. I secured it to the back of the image using tape.
For the front sentiment, I die cut the tag from the Tailor-made Classic Keyhole die cut shapes in vellum and heat bossed the sentiment with black embossing powder.
I finished off the inside of my card using papers from the April 123 Create Kit - "Stationary Noted" again and then stamped my message, from the Glamour Girls stamp set in Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink.
