.....and Bra's. LOL. Sounds funny to have that as the heading for a card but that is exactly what it is. I joined a swap hosted by Gabby on SCS. To make cards that look like Bra's and Panties. I joined both swaps as you really can't have one without the other. I don't usually make shaped cards but these were just too darn cute to resist. I spent most of yesterday and today on these. Main reason being I had to make a six of each and they were a little time consuming due to the ribbon embellishments.
I used creamy caramel cardstock on both the bra's and the pants as this cardstock seemed to be the most skin colored I had. I found the DP at Archivers. I had searched everywhere for a paper that would just jump out at me and scream "wouldn't I make a great Bikini' and this one did just that. I spotted the pom pom ribbon there too and took all they had left of it and thank goodness it was just enough. I found the pink check ribbon at Jo-Ann's again the colors seemed to go together really well. For some reason my printer printed out the template a little small so I had to enlarge it a little. But these ladies still fit in an invitation envelope.
The swap called for a tattoo of some sort on the panties so I found a real cute clear stamp from studio G which fit perfectly in the center of her back. You have to imagine you are looking at her back for the bottom and her front for the top. I am just thrilled with how these turned out. I hope my fellow swappers like them just as much as I do. Thanks for looking.
