Embrace Your Inner Picasso!

I'm the hostess this week for the "Anything Goes" challenge at CardMaker Magazine's CardSwaps Board.

This is my challenge sample.
The challenge is to create your own designer or printed paper. I created the butterfly background paper using a stamp from SU's Branch Out Set.

I got the idea for the Tu-tu from Diane over at Rubber n' Rafters. She did a great job on her card and I knew I had to make one of my very own!!!

I didn't have the best of luck attaching the skirt...I ended up sewing it to the paper. It worked fine but I was hoping for a faster fix! I tried a Zig pen which never really dried properly and Tacky Tape (you know that stuff that looks red on the roll). The lace wouldn't stick to the Tape but that may have been because of the Zig pen.

I must say, I really like this card!! I have the Forever Young Cricut cartridge that will cut out the dress form which would make this card faster...I just need to figure out a better/faster way for attaching the skirt!

What would you do to efficiently attach the lace?


  1. I like it! Not sure what I would do to attach the lace. I'd probably use tacky glue, but that can warp the card.

  2. Mrs. Jones,
    I love your CASE card and thanks so much for the shout-out! I can tell you how I attached mine if you want to know. I had the same trouble as you... so I cut a second body from the form... then I ran a thread on a needle and zig-zagged it through the top of the ribbon and gathered it, then I layed it on the table, then laid the second form on top and actually tied it in the back.. then I used pop dots to add to the original "stamped" dress form. if you click on the picture again it will enlarge and you may be able to see what I mean..either way, yours turned out TU TU CUTE TOO! Hugs Diane
