How can we be on my July Birthstone already? I am really enjoying working with this theme and don’t want it to end. So, July’s birthstone is Ruby and so it was fairly easy for me to match that one to cardstock. Real Red of course.
I fell in love with the Beautiful You stamp as soon as I saw but don’t use it anywhere near enough. I have also seen numerous images of people having made the dress and hat out of DSP so I decided to give it a go!
As previously mentioned, the base is Real Red with a layer of Sending Love DSP. I stamped the image in Basic Black onto Whisper White and onto a sheet of DSP. I fussy cut around the hat and dress then adhered it to the image on the Whisper White. I did use my Pink Pirouette marker to add a little colour to the lady.
I got a longer layer of Real Red to layer the Whisper White onto but used the Candle Border Punch across the bottom first. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red. A few Real Red Enamel Shapes, Stars, were added to finish the card off.
To add a little more texture to this card iadded some of the Sending Love Ribbon around the bottom of the centre panel and a small bow in the top corner.
I am really happy with how these came out. Just imagine all the patterns on the dresses if you used all the different DSP’s!
