The idea comes from Bernadette Baio who shared the card - plus others - with Dawn Olchefske who posted it on facebook.
Check this out!
Whisper White Thick cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Mambo Melon - begin with 5 1/2" x 4" (cutting instructions below)
Basic Black - 3/4" x 2 1/8" (to be trimmed as needed)
Basic Black - Cut with Stitched Shapes - smallest square
Using a sharp blade, cut two slits for the strip to weave through.
For the first one I left the belt straight across the way Bernadette did. I think it defines a more defined waist. Silly me, on the 2nd one I trimmed the belt to match the skirt and really don't like it. Trial and Error, right?
The birthday sentiment comes from Butterfly Basics. The Pearl and Rhinestones are from the old "style" before they were "reconfigured" them this year, which makes it much easier to make the cute leash.
A Special Thank You to Bernadette Baio and to Dawn Olchefske for sharing this fabulous card! I'm still giddy about how cute it is!
Thank you for looking in today! Happy Thursday!
