I am so excited to be sharing a card today with you as this month’s Guest Designer for the AAA Cards Challenge. I always look forward to AAA Cards Monthly themes, and this one truly blew my socks off:
How much fun is this??! AAA Cards is looking for CAS cards inspired by the fashions of the Oscar red carpet. AND you can be inspired by fashions worn by a male or female of any year!!
There is certainly no shortage of inspiration! Being a CAS girl, I couldn’t go past Reece Witherspoon’s 2015 Oscar dress by Tom Ford:
So chic, stylish and effortlessly CAS!
How I was inspired:
I felt that the dress was all about balance, so I tried to reflect that by channeling those bold black stripes and Reece’s elegant diamond earrings in a simple, formal layout. The black lines were a great way to use up some scraps. The glittery die-cut flowers were my hat-tip to Reece’s sparkly earrings. I used Paper Smooches Dainty Flowers 2 and snipped the flower heads from their stems to get the shape I wanted. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted’s Let’s Party. I finally added a couple of rhinestones, and I was done. Uber CAS!
A big thank you once again to Jane and everyone at AAA Cards for the opportunity to Guest Design with them this month! Make sure you go past the AAA Cards Challenge blog and check out all the amazing inspiration put together by the Design Team.
Hope to see you and your red carpet creations in the gallery!
