Just to prove that miracles do occur, I found my Taylored Expressions apron/dress die! Whoot! I actually looked up my order to make sure I hadn't dreamed (dreamt, if you are in the UK) it. Once I read the other stuff on the order, I remembered seeing that stuff in my hunt, so I went back to that spot and voila - there they were! Mystery solved; case closed.
So here is my VSN-worthy (made in under 45 minutes) card with a red dress:
I LOVE THIS DIE! I cut another piece with just the bottom of the die so I could make it look like the dress either had a decorative edge to it, or her slip was showing. That's the flip side of the dress paper. ALL the paper is from my still-out 7 Gypsies Vintage paper pack. The Hero Arts sentiment was stamped on the back of a piece of the background paper. I like cutting up the words so they fit better on the card front.
A little story about that ribbon. I was so sure I was going to make a mess of it (not sure I still didn't) that I took a pic of the card Before Ribbon:
It really needed something. I put a line of red sticky tape on the front, started on the left side, and just looped it every 1/4" or so. Before I took the pic I pushed each loop flat so it looked more "finished", and here is the result:
Okay, the loops are actually sticking straight up, but once I put that baby in a clear sleeve, they'll behave better. Hmph.
Wha, there's videos on how to do this? Really?! I don't need no stinkin' videos. Ptfhftft. Or maybe I do. What do you think?
I've pretty much given up hope of doing any more VSN cards this time, because in addition to the apron/dress die, I found all sorts of other things that need to be used first, so I declare my VSN attention span interrupted.
I'll be posting some more MFT cards next, and I may even show you how I store my Nesties, which is not very well.
Thanks for stopping by!
