I wanted to make a project that would be sophisticated. When I started this project I had no idea what I was doing but as I got into it I saw that the eyeConnect Crafts Lace Ups Corset (in the small size) could also be a full top by turning the chest into shoulders.
I painted one of the eyeConnect Crafts small Lace Ups corset pink. (Any paint will do.) Two corsets come in the package but you can save the other for a different project. You can buy the small eyeConnect Craft Lace Ups Corset here.
I used a stencil with a sponge and white pigment ink. Then I add white embossing powder to the wet pigment ink and heat set it with a heat gun. I added the white embossing powder because the my white pigment ink takes too long to dry.
I then took a background stamp with black Memento ink and stamped the eyeConnect Crafts Lace Ups small corset here and there. I let it dry for a time and then wiped off any excess ink. I used pink bakers twine to lace up the corset.
Tip: When you are lacing up the corset start at the bottom back and work your way up. This way the bow will be on the top.
Take a black piece of paper (or cardstock) and a compass and draw a skirt form.
Create fold lines with a bone folder and a score board.
Add more detail with a background stamp, clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Assemble the card. Cut a 9 1/2 x 11 piece of white cardstock in half lengthwise. Score in half to create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 white card.
Cover the front of the card with silver glitter paper.
Cut out a rectangle of white paper (approx 3 3/4 x 5). Emboss a simple design with an embossing machine.
Tip: Leave the raised image to the outside for more interest and a better adhesive surface on the back.
Add foam squares to the back of the white die cut that you have just embossed and adhere to the center of the silver card front.
Finally, adhere a double layer of foam squares (one on top of the other) to the back of the eyeConnect Crafts Lace Ups corset so that it will stick out above the skirt. Put glossy accents (an adhesive) to the back of the skirt and glue to the bottom of the card being sure to center it. When it is dry add the corset to the to top of the skirt. Be sure to overlap the skirt with the corset.
Finite! and your done!
