I LOVE this new framelits set Dress Up. This is one of the four cards I did with fabric.
My card uses the colours from the fabric; Pool Party, Soft Suede and More Mustard. The dress frames were part of a series of products related to the dress. You can find them all on page 170 of the 2013 Spring Catalogue.
My background was made with En Francais; a very well loved stamp set. The Ovals Collection framelits are also new (page 4) The buttons are from the lovely Artisan Embellishments Kit that has tags, ticket stubs, lace, paper flowers, buttons, doilies.....There are 26 embellishments in all. Page 10.
The waistband was made with the ribbon you can get from Sale-a-bration that starts Tuesday the 22nd. Spend $60 and get it FREE. There are 3 ribbon spools and 26 buttons. The little scallop flower was made with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a More Mustard brad from the 3/16" Regals Brads.
The sentiment I used is also a Sale-a-bration item!! It's on the flyer below. Isn't it a great stamp set! You can get it FREE!
Here is a pic of just 9 of the 19 items you can get during Sale-a-bration. I haven't figured out how to capture page 2 of this document, so for now I'll just show this 9. Contact me for further details...it's a great time to purchase from Stampin' Up!
Otherwise the card is pretty self explanatory. No measurements needed. Just cut out all your pieces and glue them on!! Easy Peasy! Card idea CASEd from Mary Rindal
Thanks for stopping by!

This is #2 of 4 cards made with fabric. Tear a strip of co-ordinating fabric and adhere to card...how simple is that?! I love the little fringe created from the fraying. Once again I used the Floral District Fabric and the Floral District Designer Series Paper. The new Designer Builder Brads are gorgeous and you get 16 in a package for just $9.95. You can find them on page 12 of the 2013 spring catalogue.
The sentiment "There's Only One You" is from Vintage Verses; a Sale-a-bration set that is available for FREE with a $60 purchase staring January 22!!

I'm loving the possibilities there are to use fabric on your cards!! It adds great visual interest and is so easy to use. My card uses the Floral District Fabric found on page 171 of the main catalogue. I used the Beautiful Butterflies die together with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (page 160). It makes adhering and working with fabric fun and easy!
Choose a sentiment of your liking and you have a quick card completed in minutes! I use the Fabulous Phrases set.
Here are the measurements to make it even quicker!!
Card Base Pool Party: 8 1/2" X 11" scored at 4 1/4"
DSP Floral District: 5" X 3 3/4"
Mat Tangerine Tango: 3 1/2" X 2 1/2"

For the inside I used a 5" X 3 3/4" piece of Tangerine Tango and a
