Graphic 45 Midnight Masquerade Magical Masquerade Ball Invitation
Hello, Friends! Today I get to share one of the projects I made for CHA/Creativation back in January. For this Magical Masquerade Ball Invitation I combined Graphic 45’s mesmerizing new Midnight Masquerade collection with fabulous purple organza ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Ooh-la-la! Take a look at these fabulous colors and images! That purple ribbon just pops against the vibrant patterns in this collection. I topped the bow with gold metallic string and a fancy button from my stash. Let’s look at the details.
This paper collection has a wonderful dream-like quality to it. Because of that, I wanted to make my images appear as though they were floating on clouds of flowers.
After fussy cutting the focal image, I rounded the skirt by gently burnishing it against the side of my bone folder. Once the paper curved, I glued just the very edge of the sides to my paper. Then I backed the center of the image with gorgeous Petaloo Purple hydrangeas. I also tucked these around the hem of the skirt, creating the illusion that this dancing lady is floating .
If you love to fussy cut, this collection will make you very, very happy! I fussy cut some of the Ventian masks to use as embellishments. Once again, I curved the edges to achieve dimension, then glued just the edges to the paper.
The sentiment is framed with a Staples Ornate Label.
Welcome to the Ballroom at the Midnight Masquerade Ball
A pair of pockets decorate the inside of the card.
I cut journaling tags from the paper collection, and added some fussy cut images to the pockets.
Now where are my dancing shoes?
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at this fabulous new collection!
Gorgeous papers and magical the way you put it together!
Oh, Kathy, this card is absolutely stunning! The colors are just brilliant, and you are so clever to use the papers in this way–curving the dress and the mask and layering over the blossoms-delightful! I bet this was the most drooled over creation at Creativation! Sending more hugs!
You’ve managed to capture the floating look . Gorgeous vibrant colours mixed with lots of fussy cutting and lovely ribbons add to a beautiful card. It’s all so wonderful, just imagine going to that ball, wow. Hugs x
Your card leaves me without words!! Well, I have words, like magical, mystical, stunning, beautiful, perfect… The list goes on and on, but none of the words I can think of can do justice to your breathtaking creation. Once again, I am in awe!!
