Let's get started !!
Here's the Design Team

Enjoy the Hop. Come on back tomorrow for more creative fun!!

My dress for Sophia is not going to look like anyone else's because I made mine by masking and stamping components of the other outfits to make the wedding dress.
I stamped the short skirt first. 
Then I stamped it on a post it note (in blue)
I cut out the post it note and covered the skirt.

I stamped the skirt again, but lowered it slightly.

 Another skirt stamped on the post it note and cut out and put over second layer.
Then I stamped the long skirt over the post it note. I used the form fitting dress but cut away the collar to add the lacy one. I cut the skirt and dress out and covered them with cheese cloth. I added some embroidered flowers and pearls and a row of lace with flowers to the bottom. I made her hat and veil out of the embroidered flower and more cheese cloth. The background behind her reminded me of vintage wall paper. That is why I made it a wall and added the framed sentiments. 

The sentimenst I hung on my card's "Wall" were from MFP set called SWANS
To frame the sentiments on the wall I used MFP set called ALL POSTAL

 I made it an easel card to stand up. Since I put about 4 hours making the dress I think it should be displayed. I took some of the dp I used on the front and put that on the bottom of the easel and I punched the edge.

I think the dress looks like it could have been a wedding dress in the 1920's. What do you think? 


  1. What a wonderful frock MariLynn - I do admire your tenacity in creating it, and the final card is stunning.

  2. Such a creative idea--changing the skirt shape with masking. TFS!

  3. What a lovely wedding dress and yes could be 1920s - so much effort on one card - hope it is appreciated

  4. Marilynn!!! what a great idea to make the skirt into a completely new style dress!
