Us crafters get offered some weird stuff sometimes, on the grounds that we'll probably get some use out of it. But a whole wedding dress??? Yup, the full meringue!! A gazillion miles of net, several acres of duchess satin, more buttons than Cadbury's and lots and lots of lace. Of course I said yes 😀😀.
I spent hours seriously HOURS, unpicking lace pieces, so we just had to use them on a card, and this is what we made.
I decided to leave the bottom corner undecorated so people can add a suitable sentiment later. I thought it would be good for Mother's Day, weddings, anniversaries and the like.
The lace has all sorts of beads and sequins sewn on it, but I haven't managed to capture the sparkle of it. It just required a simple bit of matting and layering with some soft romantic papers and a cha cha cha doily die. Lots of fun and games making the smaller roses - by twisting and rolling thin strips of paper, and job done!
