Prom Night scrapframe
With children in the family there's always something to celebrate, whether it's Birthdays, Congratulations, You’ve passed! or the traditional 16th, 18th and 21st parties and don’t forget Prom night too!
Once you have that special photo why not make this scrapframe to admire it from? Black and white are great background colours for this event’s memories.
What you will need:
- Elegant card
- Black and white cardstock
- Sizzix Framelit dies – Tickets and Fancy edge set
- Red double-sided tape from kit
- Brilliance Inks set – Platinum Planet
- Marion Emberson stamps (leaf design)
- Self adhesive pearls
How to make the scrapframe:
Step 3 – Using Sizzix Framelits in the elegant shape ‘Fancy’, cut out the two largest sizes with one in white and one in black card. Add this to the scrapframe, position as shown slightly more to the right at the top right hand corner.
Step 4 – To make the prom dress, stamp the leaf design in Platinum Planet silver onto white card. Using the punch, punch out a shape and then cut this a little bit more than half way. Using the slightly larger piece, slightly trim the sides to make the shape more 'waisted'.
Next add a piece of netting by adding double-sided adhesive to one side and pleating to create the skirt shape. Affix to the punched-out shape with strong double-sided tape. Add black velvet ribbon around the waist and finish off with a white ribbon bow.
Step 5 – Make a stand for the prom dress from white card; add faux stitching with a fine black pen. Attach the dress to the stand and then the stand to the background using 3D foam pads.
Step 7 – Punch out the shape using white card and add your message. To finish the scrapframe, make a stand from a thick cardstock and add to the back with 3D foam, which will make it stand away from the card base and therefore not be visible from the front.
Tip – don’t forget, this will also make a lovely card for that special occasion. Make it exactly the same way just don’t seal it or add the stand at the back!
