Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #54

Welcome to another challenge with Die Cuttin' Divas!

This week the challenge is to use Feathers, Flowers, and/or Fabric in your project.  Be sure to include a die-cut and tell us where it's from, and link back to the Die Cuttin' Divas blog.

I used Fabric in my project.  Here's the card I made:

The fabric paper is kind of new from DCWV.  When I first saw it in my local scrapbooking stores, I thought it was so pretty.  They had two different packs--a pink/tan color scheme.

AND, a blue/brown color scheme.

I couldn't decide on which one, so I bought them both!!

Here's how I made my card:
Card size: 5" x 6.5" using Kraft cardstock
Floral background fabric cut at 4.75" x 6.25"
Tan fabric cut at 3" x 5.5", adhered to brown shimmer cardstock
Nifty Fifties cartridge, pg. 50 dress form cut at 5" using the brown shimmer cardstock, tan cardstock for the shadow, and white cardstock for the dress.
Then I cut the dress again (by hand) on the pink fabric and ahered it to the white cardstock dress.
Sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious set stamped on white cardstock and punched with an oval punch which I cut in order to have a straight edge against the measuring tape.
Measuring tape is a peel and stick fabric border by Flea Market (isn't that the cutest thing?!)
Pink ribbon and a clear gem for the dress finishes my card.

To enter the challenge this week, make something using flowers, feathers, and/or fabric.  You will have one week to plan, create and submit your project.  Please remember to include which die-cut you used with a link back to Die Cuttin' Divas

Thanks for stopping by--appreciate all your comments!!

I'd like to enter this card into D.L. Art Thankful Thursday Challenge--anything goes!

  10. Pat,

    I love your card. Beautiful paper!

  11. WOW your card is AWESOME!BEAUTIFUL job with it!!:)

  12. Hey Pat!! What a great card!! I fell in love with that fabric paper also at Joann's, but and I know that you wont believe this but I didn't buy anything!!! I know!! I think the only reason I bought nothing is because I have been cleaning my craft room, and re-organizing, and finding things that i never even knew I had! lol, so i am on a spending freeze, except for the new punches from We Are Memory Keepers, I couldn't not buy them!! Thanks for sharing, Karen♥

  13. I bought this "paper" too. I thought it would be great for my Granddaughter's scrap book but it was the first thing I thought of when I saw this weeks challenge!

    Your card is really pretty.

    Thanks for the inspiration,
    Cindy :)

  14. Oh wow, Pat, this is so beautiful!! I have looked at that fabric paper every time I go to Joann's but I haven't purchased it yet. You have inspired me to do so...this card is so gorgeous!! :)

  15. LOVE the fabric cardstock! My mother just picked up BOTH packs for me as well a few days ago at Joann's (she understands my addiction to cardstock)! The papers are absolutely BEAUTIFUL... so beautiful that I haven't had the courage to cut into them yet! But.... I love the card that you came up with... and now I'm thinking that pairing these fabric papers up with my Forever Young cartridge might just be the way to go!!! LOL! Thanks for the inspiration, Pat! ~Hugs

  16. Pat, I had to come back, and fess up about this fabric paper. i was so impressed with myself for not buying it when I saw it at Joann's, but.... as I was cleaning out my bookcase full of paper, what did my eyes see peaking out of a huge stack of paper pads, YES!! I am giving myself way to much credit for being able to leave something that I loved in the store. There is a positive side to this, My eyes are really being opened the more I clean, I see so many things that I forget that I have bought, and some of them have been wrecked by being stacked the wrong way, or something has spilled, ect. so I am going to try and not to buy, until I need it! Well I just had to stop by and "fess up" Karen♥
