Who's Your Mummy??

>> Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Hello Friends, Chrissy D here. Do you have ever have cards you think you had a touch of Creative genius for and can't wait to create it? Well, this was one of those cards for me... I have had this idea in my head for THREE weeks ever since I saw the Sneak Peek to these fabulous fall images! I had a different ribbon in my head, but I think I used is on something else, so settled for simple white grosgrain.

Here are some details to my card... I started out by stamping  Frisky Florence on white storm card stock and colored her in very quickly and simply. I did not focus on the detail of coloring her because I figured she would be covered up! I then carefully cut around her and cut the hat completely off. I even trimmed the sides of her skirt down because it stuck out too far for the mummy look right. I used a Craft Knife to cut in between her body where her arm bends on both sides, so I could weave the ribbon through it.

Once  Frisky Florence  was cut out, I put adhesive on the front of her legs and behind them and started to "mummify" her. :) I worked up each leg and then her body. Some of the ribbon I cut and glued to the back to get her to look well wrapped!

I used the Marbled Smooch technique on the Blue panel and layered the card with Black and White cardstock. I embossed the blue panel with the Sizzix Flowers and Flourish set. I used the Spellbinders dies called Ovals and the Elegant Ovals along with my Grand Calibur!

Additional tools were a Martha Stewart punch, gems, mini glue dots, Paper Snips, Copic markers, white gel pen and a Black marker too! I added the Who's Your Mummy image to finish off my card...

So what do you think? 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!

What a fun card, Chris! It's funny, I was looking at Florence yesterday (before I saw this)and thinking about doing the same thing. Luckily, I went another direction, lol. Very creative!
