I had so much fun with this card.
The card was inspired by a quote I found online "Love is Blind, why is lingerie so popular?". So true. Unfortunately the author of the quote is unknown.
I used the Cricut Expression and the Tie the Knot cartridge to create the bustier and bling'd it up with some xmas red stickles.
I find that the Spellbinder large classic scallop cutout creates a feeling of a window, like looking into someone's boudoir.
I wanted the entire card to have a lacy feel to it. I stamped swirl designs on the red cardstock and applied the black trim to the inside edge of the card. The black trim is leftover iron-on applique that I used in the design of my sister's wedding dress. Surprisingly enough the applique bonded to the card when I heated it with my Marvy embossing heat tool. I don't think I would use the heat technique if I were to use the applique on something that would be handled often. The bond is not as strong as using glue.
I am submitting the card in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #217 "Anything Goes".
Hope you enjoyed. Until next time, happy paper crafting!
