IBS New Release - Vintage Dress Form


Today's Inspired By Stamping showcase features the lovely set Vintage Dress Form.

This card startled me with the quickness and ease with which it went together.  It helps to use beautiful papers when making a simple note card, and Joanna's new Vintage Digital Paper is top notch.  Honestly, this gorgeous paper did almost all the work.

All I did was stamp the beautifully shaped dress form, embossed the necklace (one of several accessories) in metallic gold, add the sentiment with a couple of flourishes and voila, a simple, charming and elegant note card worthy of any of a number of occasions.  A little stitching and distressing of the edges adds just the right shabby touch.

I honestly kept trying to embellish this card with pearls, lace, ribbons, etc., but it kept telling me NO.  So I left it alone, and I'm glad I did.  This might be the first card I've ever made that will fit into an envelope with no special treatment.  I think I need to make more of them.

The inside was decorated with a stamped-off dress form and the main component of the soon-to-be-released Just Because stamp set.
