Love & Laughter Prom Dress

Happy Midweek to my fellow crafters!  We have sun today yipee. 

Another reason to be happy my stampers 6 box arrived and after bundling up everyone's orders, I had a little play with Love & Laughter.  Did you recognise the dress from the set?  

Here's the stamp set just to remind you - 

125475 Wood £21.95  125477 Clear £17.95

The dress is made up of lots of words to do with weddings and makes a gorgeous wedding card as does the cake.  However I decided to see how it would look as a Prom Dress.  

I stamped the dress in Melon Mambo onto Whisper White.  Then stamped again onto scrap paper and cut out the skirt part of the dress.  I used this as a template to cut out a Melon Mambo skirt in cardstock.  I added a frill of flowers along the bottom using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punches and an extra one at the waist with a Basic Rhinestone.  I used the Labels Collection Framelits to cut out a frame.  Then added this onto a Basic Black frame which had been embossed with the Square Lattice Folder.  I added some 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and made a little bow.  The main panel sits on Melon Mambo Designer Paper from the Stacks range and a mat of Basic Black.  I made a little tag for the sentiment from Petite Pairs stamped in Melon Mambo. 

Oh to be slim enough for this dress!  In another life perhaps.  

Hope the sun was shining for you today.  Thank you for dropping in by.  I always appreciate your visits. x
