Corset Cards


As soon as I saw a corset card on another blog recently, I just had to make one.  I didn't have a template though so used a small blank card and drew a corset shape on one side with the card closed and then cut around it.


I used Distress Inks to colour the card, and stamped with Stampers Anonymous 'Pattern Pieces'.  I machine stitched some lace top and bottom
and the 'buttons' are Liquid Pearls.  

Of course, I couldn't stop at just one!


I covered the card in old book text first before colouring it with Distress Inks.
The 'buttons' this time are Stickles 'Black Diamond'.


Thanks for stopping to look and I'll get back to you
 in a couple of weeks (hopefully!!).

  I'm finishing my packing today as we're due
to fly off to Cyprus in the morning - Icelandic volcanic ash permitting!
