Playing Dress Up: Oscar Party Invitation

Party or Wedding Invitation Photo

How long has it been since you played with paper dolls?

I'm having a ball playing with the new All Dressed Up Bundle (All Dressed Up stamp set + Dress Up Framelits Dies). If you want to feel like a kid again and unleash the wannabe fashion designer inside, you will love creating with these new "toys" from Stampin' Up!

In honor of the Oscars, I created a classy party invitation - which gave me a reason to create a sparkly evening gown!

The party invite features a curvy closure created with the Labels Collection Framelits and is adorned with the new Designer Builder Brads.

The flap tucks into a tiny little closure pocket (a small slit in the card stock). The lower portion is embossed with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.

Inside: Invitation Details and sparkly dress

Inside the invitation are the details and an original designer "Glimmer Gown". Hee!! The flower and "you're invited" greeting are from the Oh, Hello stamp set. The party details were printed on card stock and cut to fit.

Stampin' Up! Dress Up Framelits Glimmer Paper Dress

The Glimmer Gown was created using the Dress Up Framelits and the Big Shot to cut the gown from Silver Glimmer Paper. To color the skirt, I dipped a Stamping Sponge in a few drops of Basic Black ink (from the ink pad refill bottle) and dabbed it on the Glimmer Paper.

Did you notice the adorable tiny hanger? I couldn't resist!! The Cute Clips - Hung Up Collection contains tiny hangers, arrows, and thought bubbles. They are aptly named because they are stinkin' cute!  I did snip a tiny bit off the hanger clip, so as not to interfere with the neckline of the gown. We certainly can't have that, now can we? ;)
