SAF 2015: Runway Inspired Challenge

I’ve always loved fashion. I even applied and was accepted to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Sometimes, I wonder what my life would have been like had I taken the less traveled road. Regardless, I do know that I still love fashion and I’m grateful that I have a paper crafting passion that allows me to pair the two together. For the Runway Inspired challenge, I’ve selected an Oscar de la Renta gown as inspiration for my card design.

I love polka dots. They are my favorite design print now. I love how polka dots look paired with flowers, so I chose this dress as inspiration for my card. I used the colors and fabric print to design my card.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink + Stamp-a-faire 2015 (August 2015) #AshleyCannonNewell #PapertreyInk #PaperSuite (Graceful Greetings + Bigger Blooms + Polka Dot Basics)

First, I stamped the polka dotted pattern on black cardstock. The white dots are heat embossed. Next, I die cut “Thanks” and all the Bigger Bloom flowers. After stamping everything, I added it to the card front.
