Thanks For The Support

I had a request to make a "funny" card.
Something to show support to the recipient.

So I googled ideas. For nearly an hour!
I finally came across a tutorial image 
in google search posted at Pinterest.
It was the only bra/bikini top image like this I'd seen
and I thought is was cute. Plus, I had all of the 
supplies to make one! I showed the basic idea to
the person that placed the request and she loved it.

Mine isn't nearly as cute and is misshapen
compared to the original since I didn't have 
an image of it at my work space.
I just noted how to make the basic design
on a piece of scratch paper.

My first step was to find narrow ribbon in my stash 
to see what colors of paper to use,
then I could make the rest of the card from there.
I had a narrow light blue with white polka dots.

Next I paper punched the cups with the 
ornament and large circle punches
following the instructions I found (below).

I stamped white flower images onto
the Bliss Blue card stock with white craft ink.

I used the eyelet ribbon border punch
rather than dies for my lacy edges.
Regular printer weight/copy paper
was used so it could curve better.

A miniature Prima flower and rhinestone
finish the bra image off.

It is attached to the polka dot 
pressure embossed card front with dimensionals.

The inside has a computer generated sentiment
and matching stamped, paper punched details.

Everything, other than the flower and ribbon,
came from SU!

I don't know that I'll ever need
such a card design again, but if I do,
 I hope I remember how to make this.

Here is the original idea and instructions

Thanks for looking =)
