Ballerina Girl MMSC97
Today I made a ballerina girl using PriscillaStyles ballerina resting image found at http://priscillastyles-store.blogspot.com/ I printed the image on transparent paper then "flipped" the image. For the sketch I made a box out of paper that I cut then folded (1/2" for inner edge and 1/2" outer edge), cutting out the corners so the bottom (black)paper would show through. The outside of the "box" was lined with textured pink foil paper then filled with tissue paper. The flipped image was glued to DP then placed on top of the tissue paper. A beautiful bow was added with the necklace drapped around the bow. I am not a believer a gift should always hide inside a box so this card presents the gift as the focal point. The paper used was SU! cardstock, transparency, DP by Anna Griffin. I do want to add that the DP behind the box is textured velvet so the card has alot of softness to it. Silver dots were added at the corners to offset the pearl necklace.
