Design Team Tutorial: Basically Bare

We've launched a brand new product range to the UK and European market!......

Our Design Team have been busy getting creative with Basically Bare and Kuretake products!  The first project, "Dress to Impress" has been done by Dee Paramour. Here's her tutorial....

Basically Bare items

Other Materials

Lilac A4 cardstock
Lightweight white cardstock
Silver thread

How to Make

1. Fold the lilac card in half to make an A5 card blank.

2. Take the large felt heart from the Basically bare heart pack and spritz with water.  Scribble lines of colour next to each other with the Art and Graphic twin pens.  Spritz the ink with water then lay the heart on to colour, move the heart around slightly to ensure good colour coverage.  Allow to dry.

3. Fold over the point of the heart and sew in place with Silver thread.  Sew some stars at the bottom and add a lilac flower brad to the folded piece.


 4. Scribble purple, lilac and blue Art and Graphic twin pens on a craft mat, spritz with water and lay the white card over it.  Swoosh it around a bit and put to one side to dry.  Repeat with the same colours but add some pink to it.  Cover the piece with cling film and allow to dry naturally.

5. Use the corner punch to punch out a border from the blue card.  Fix to the right hand side of the card.  Trim down the coloured/cling filmed card and fix to the card as shown.

6. Use the embossing pen and white embossing powder to cover the top and the bottom areas of the large greyboard dress form from the dress form pack.

7. Cut out a bodice shape from the other piece of coloured card and fix in place on the dress form.  Fix two short pieces of pink ribbon across the bottom of the dress, a piece round the waist and a twisted piece across the top of the bodice.  Fix the coloured heart in place on the skirt area.

8. Cover a star from the celestial shapes pack with the coloured card.  Edge with the blue pen and write your message on it.  Fix some pink ribbon down the right hand side of the card, fix the dress form and the star in place.  Add 3 blue brads in place at the bottom of the ribbon.
