So here are the details of my card:

I used the fabulous set, Princess.  I have a little princess and when I saw the set, I just knew I had to create a dress to go with this sweet crown and fabby sentiments. I went with a slightly different fold, choosing to extend the skirt over the left fold a bit, and cutting away the top of the card on either side of the dress, thus giving a peek of the crown that's on the inside.

Our Daily Bread designs Stamps, Princess, Grace Nywening

 I used shimmery card stock and embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, and then I used a glittery card stock for the top of the dress.  I heat embossed the crown on acetate with a silver glitter embossing powder, and cut out, placing it on the corner of the silver Spellbinder's Antique Frame, which made me think of a mirror on the wall.  Inside that frame is a sentiment from the set, embossed with silver ... Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.

Our Daily Bread designs Stamps, Princess, Grace Nywening

I backed the front of the card (dress) with pink mirror paper, and tied a pretty tulle sash around the waist.  The inside is also matted with mirrored paper.  On the front of the card I used another SB from the Antique Frames set and embossed another sentiment from the Princess Set, which I just love!  As children of the King... we ARE princesses, and I love the idea of conveying this message to our young girls to whom the world constantly sends messages that it's beauty, popularity, success, etc. that gives them their worth.  Our worth is in Christ, and we are dearly loved, adopted as His children, and joint heirs with Christ!   If we know Him as Savior, we ARE princesses!

Our Daily Bread designs Stamps, Princess, Grace Nywening

Just a tip on drawing a dress:  I folded a piece of paper in half and drew just half the dress at the height I wanted (6").  I cut it out doubled so I had even sides.  I then traced the top on another piece of paper, and drew a line down to the center fold for the drop waist.  I hope you'll give it a try!  I'd love to see it if you do!

Here is the set I used:

I thought I'd also share a card I shared as a sneak peek just in case you didn't see it... because this sweet set is so worth seeing again!  It's a precious set called Little Girls, and the possibilities are limitless!


You can see the details of this card and the sets used by scrolling down one post.



Thanks so much for stopping!  Now I'll send you on to the next stop....  Becca's AMAZING Papergrace!

Blessings,

Sandy (Cheesy) said...

Oh my goodness, Grace. This first card is so inventive. I just love how you made the dress the front of the card, and allowed the inside to be slightly seen. It is just beautiful in every way. WOW!
And the second is so adorable too. Thanks for some great ideas.

Dottie said...

So sweet~! As a daughter of the King, it's a great card for both a little girl, but also for a woman who doesn't feel worthy of His amazing love. Sometimes we all need to feel like a beloved daughter and a princess. Thanks for the idea - and the reminder!

Both are beautiful cards. My favorite is the pink little girls card, yet being a child of the King, too, I liked your princess card.

Charlotte Zweigoron said...

We are definitely birds of a feather. I have always noticed your opening line on your bio and now you have chosen the sentiment re: The daughter of the King. This is one of my very favorite thoughts for myself and it must have great meaning for you as well. Totally lovely card for a lovely young lady. I would love to have this set.
