Corset Card.....

Good morning everyone and welcome.  Come on in and have a cuppa and let's spend a little time together.  I'm here this morning to share a card I have made using a template for a corset that I found on the internet.  I don't have where this came from so I can't link back to the person who drew this.  Sorry.




This is my first attempt to decorate one of these and I sort of like how it turned out.  I also love the lace peeping out from behind the curled and rolled paper along the edge.  I think I will try another one of these with a different form.  I also stamped and fussy cut the butterflies and I think they made a good finishing touch for the card.  I took white embroidery thread and colored it with distress ink and then sewed the lacing down the front of the corset.  I might use a small ribbon on the next one and maybe some stitching along the edges.

I used Graphic 45 papers from the Le Romantique Collection and die cuts from Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses Collection.  The lace is from my stash and I've had it quite awhile so I'm not sure where it came from.

Update on the Spellbinders Tool'n One....It's amazing!  I used it to clean out the little bits and pieces left in my dies and I don't have to pick out each piece.  Just roll that brush over the die and all the tiny pieces pop right out.  The fact that it rolls along is what makes it work so well.  Would recommend this to anyone!
