An Oldie on Friday

Hello and here I am back again this afternoon with one of my "oldies"

Erika from snappycrafts blog invites us to link with her each Friday where we show one of our old cards or other craft items.  If you join in leave a comment for Erika and she'll return the visit.

My card today was only five years ago although the topper was made some time before that and sat in a box of bits.

I'd  used a Judikins wood mounted stamp to gold emboss onto the shiny orange paper.  I put fine glitter on the bodice and cut out the dress.  I mounted with foam pads onto an oval I'd made using one of the Glitter Girls boards which were very popular at the time.  The oval was rubbed over with metallic rub-ons (now we use gilding wax).

I'm not sure which embossing folder I used and the photo isn't very good.  The sentiment is by Paula Pascal.  I really don't like the way I've mounted it but obviously did five years ago.  I do like that dress though!

Happy Crafting and Thank You for visiting,  Have a good weekend.

  1. A lovely dress stamp, Barb. I love how you've added glitter on the bodice. Isn't it interesting how we look back at cards we made in the past and see how our styles of cardmaking change. x

  11. Love the dress. The glitter girls, that takes me back, I never succumbed to buying any of their boards, but will confess to owning one of their glitter ball tools. It was the largest size ball tool I could find at the time to make the flowers with for my wedding bouquet (picture lurking on my blog somewhere - maybe I'll drag it out yo join in next week's oldies)

  14. Gorgeous Barb! The dress reminds me of when I was little and played in my grandma's attic. She had all of my mom's old dance dresses and other formal gowns up there and a wonderful old dressing table. I was in heaven playing dress up.
