I'm afraid that in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon tragedy, I completely forgot that the lovely Die-Dut Divas (AKA: Hannah, Arlene, and Paula) spotlighted me on their blog!
I am thrilled they chose me as a subject, and I hope you'll go visit their blog, as I have a feeling their efforts may have been neglected by readers who were engaged in following the media coverage of the marathon bombings.
They interviewed me, and I made some birthday cards for the occasion. Here's one of the cards I made for them using some of the latest Memory Box dies:
I N S T R U C T I O N S
- Print computer-generated sentiment on cardstock.
- Make card base and round corners.
- Die cut dressmaker's form, dress, and bow.
- Use a Sharpie and Krylon silver leaf pen to color the metal bits of the dressmaker's form and to outline the grooves at the bottom.
- Adhere pearls to wheels of dressmaker's form. Set aside for inks to dry.
- Assemble bow, adhere gem and attach to dress.

That dress bow is teensy-weensy, so you can't bend the cardstock like you usually would when making a larger paper bow. Instead, curl the bow shape around a stylus and use a glue dot to hold the two ends together (where they meet in the middle). Once you have both sides of the bow implanted in the glue dot, carefully apply a few drops of Glossy Accents to cement the bond.
