Dressing up cards

When I’m home alone and have a bit of time to myself, ie the housework is done or ignorable, I put Create and Craft on and spread my current project over the living room floor. Tuesday was a day of ignoring the housework (we still have forks, and we’ve both got underwear, I can get away with it). 

I was watching today and was pleasantly surprised too see Kathy from Trimcraft on with Dean, especially when my blog got a bit of a mention! I laughed all the way through the show, and was very proud that I managed to resist temptation. Kathy showed how to make origami dresses and Dean crafted along with her. I’ve made these before, and even blogged about a card with one a year back, but it’s one of the techniques which has fallen from my regular repertoire.

Inspired, I spent a happy hour making dresses. They’re so sweet, like a little wardrobe of paper prettiness, but I wasn’t sure what to do with them. I turned back to my trusty mojo booster: Pinterest.

Here are the cards I’ve been making with my dresses. 

Using Noir et Chic by First Edition, and a Trimcraft die

I love the red bow, the only addition to First Edition’s Noir et Chic papers

One of my go-to paper pads, Antique Pinks from The Works

And two dresses spare, yet to be added to a card
