A Runway Inspired Birthday Card!

Today is my sister-in-law’s 30th and since she is behind the fun fashion website, mock-off.com, it seemed fitting to use the latest Runway Inspired Challenge as inspiration for her birthday card. (And yes, I am late sending it and yes, I am now totally hooked on challenging myself).

Here’s the new challenge:

This dress is absolutely gorgeous!  Just look at at all those layers and colors!  And there is more than meets the eye at first glance…if you zoom in on the fabric, in addition to all those dots, you’ll see several hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs.  I decided to mix in a few hearts to pick up on this playing card theme in my design.  I really wanted to capture the layers so I made a vellum pocket and put one layer of punched shapes inside and another on top, all framed in a nice thick textured white card-stock.  This was a completely new technique for me and I really love how it turned out.

Since this card ended up with a window, I am also entering it in Moxie Fab World’s Make a Card with a Window Challenge.

Happy Birthday Emily!
