Handmade Bachelorette Corset Card

I am extremely proud of my latest crafting project!  A close friend of mine is getting married in a couple months and her bachelorette party is next week.  I thought I would make her a cute and sexy card to match her gift.  It's a card shaped like a corset that laces up with ribbon. I stamped a pattern on the front to make the corset look like lace.

Supplies Used:
Stardream Metallic Paper - Punch color
Stampin' Up Delicate Doilies
Black embossing powder
Feathers from Joanns
Purple Organza Ribbon
Stampin' Up Simply Scored
Creative Memories Oval Cutting Patterns

*Drawing is not to scale
Green lines are cuts, blue are score and fold

Happy stamping!

Pinterest Obsession

So it's a new year and of course I have a new obsession.  Ever since my friend introduced me to this addictive collection of anything and everything, I can't seem to stop searching and gazing...  I mean, where else will pictures like these be so easily grouped together?

And I'm by no means am I a fashionista, but look at all these amazingly gorgeous girly dresses that match the frilly cakes and bedding!!  I want to eat and wear my monitor all at once!  Dresses below were linked to Sarah Seven, Ivy & Aster, and ModCloth :)  You can bet more ideas are bound to be posted on here from pinterest...
