Sometimes you need some motivation or inspiration to get you going when it comes to crafting. That’s exactly what happened this week when I came across the ‘Trigger Tuesday” series on Papercrafts’ MoxieFabWorld Blog. Ran by the editors of PaperCrafts magazine, they introduce a photo as inspiration for a papercrafting project. This is the photo for this week’s “Trigger Tuesday: Finese the Dress” inspiration:

I liked the mix of the blue and grey colors, along with the swirled print and the lace look. Well, here’s my card made with this dress as the inspiration:
The lighting doesn’t do the card justice since I took it at 7am this morning when the sun wasn’t out yet! But I got to try a fun embossing technique with a swirl stamp to create a full pattern on a piece of scrap cardstock. I then used edge punch to create the laced border. Add a pretty glittered bird sticker and a phrase stamp and voila! Here’s a fun new birthday card for an upcoming special birthday!
Here’s another close up so you could see the glistening embossing effect and the glittered bird.
