Vintage Corset by Julie Lavalette

Hi everyone, it's JULIE here today hosting. I am sharing a card with you this week with quite a lot of techniques on it. So let me take you through all my stages.

Layering my die cut corners behind my layer of card gives a different look to our corner dies.

I used my stitched rectangle as a guideline, counting the stitches, to die cut out my patterned strip evenly, holding down with a little tape. I worked from the outside on both sides towards the centre. This way I new my card would have even spacing.

I measured in between my gaps and added strips of paper with foam tape which I tattered at the edges. My centre strip was ever so slightly wider than the rest so I balanced this by adding my cream Anastasia border.

I cut my Nautical Wheeler doily in half and offset onto my stamped image which had also been tattered at the edges and a scattering of Frantage added.

My corset was cut out 3 times in different patterned paper and reinserted in to the negative spaces. I curved the edges at the top and bottom to give my corset a 3D effect adding my angel wing lace finishings and a few sparkly gems.

Adding some splashes of paint and some shabby flowers to finish. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you get a chance to join in our Current Challenge which is Mothers Day. We all look forward to seeing your beautiful entries.
