Wedded Bliss - Embossed Satin Fabric Dress



My husband's cousin got married this weekend and I knew I wanted to make a card for the occasion.  I haven't made a wedding card before, but I think this really turned out elegant.  

The bodice of the dress is from the "Sweathearts" cricut cartridge.  I cut several layers of white satin fabric with the big shot and the scallop die.  I then stiffened the fabric with hair spray and embossed it.  I staggered three layers of the embossed fabric and folded over the edges into a pie shape and taped down.  I then folded the top point down to create the shape of the bottom of the dress.  For more details on how this was done, come check out my "Quick Tip Tuesday" post at FCCB.  Finally, I used the white satin ribbon and rhinestone brad to accentuate the waist.


I hope this inspires you to emboss fabric on your next project.
Thanks for stopping by,
Melanie
