Dress Form


Happy Friday!

I have a card today using a die set from Spellbinders called Dress Form (S4-068).  This set was part of a new release from Crafters Home.  I called one of the participating stores and they graciously mailed it to me right away.

I started by cutting the large dress form from Very Vanilla paper and sponged the edges with Distressed Vintage Photo.  The lacey dress was cut from Basic Black, which I snipped off the top to create a pretty apron.  Using my new Spellbinders Elegant Posts dies I cut a stand for the dress in Basic Black.

The sentiment and border from JustRite Stampers were stamped in StazOn Black and layered onto a classic scalloped circle.  The bottom is finished using a Spellbinders Grand Classic Lace Border sponged in Distressed Vintage Photo.  I've added a black satin bow with vanilla rosette.


Champagne pearls and ruffled ribbon for a belt finish it off.


With Gratitude was stamped inside on a Labels Eight #5 die cut from Very Vanilla.  The damask pattern was done in Going Gray.


This set is so girly - I love it!  You will definitely be seeing more dress form cards.  I'm really enjoying using my new dies and stamp sets.

Are you looking forward to the weekend as much as I am?  I will have more fun stuff to share with you so please stop back to visit.

I love everything about this card. Love the dress form and how you "dressed" it. Basic Black, Very Vanilla and the patterned paper are so elegant together!
