Chic 21st

It's about time I wrote (apologies) and started to catch up with  my cards - I'm really falling behind. 

This one was for my best friend's 21st birthday. She's always a tricky one to make as I never really know what to put on her cards. I always go down the fashion/dresses route. For her 18th I did an Art Deco themed card (which I was particularly pleased with).

So this year, I opted for a stepper card. I drew the design myself and finished the dress with patterned vellum.
The text was a papercutting, originally traced from Word and then cut out in black card. It was extremely fiddly but I love the effect it makes.
