My grand daughter is 6 years old, and loves ballet, so immediately thought of a punch art ballerina, a ballerina dressed in gold for her performance.
I made the ballerina using different punches. I have seen a ballerina made with punches before, but the bodice was made with the tab punch, which I no longer have, so it took a little experimenting to make a credible bodice.
Here are the punches I used:
- 2 3/4" scallop circle punch for sides of bodice)
- Word Window punch (for neck)
- Flower Builder punch (retired) - 5 large flower petals; 5 small petals
Some 1/8" gold taffeta ribbon was tied around the waist. You'll have to excuse the knot of the ribbon. I just has surgery on my right hand and just couldln't hold onto the ribbon to tie it. Most frustrating!
The basic card is Whisper White, layered with gold foil and then Whisper White embossed with Gently Falling embossing folder.
The ballerina is adhered to the card front using dimensionals.
