One of my first purchases from the new Idea Book & Catalog was this set, Established Elegance. I just know it's going to produce some beautiful cards!
This one starts with Crumb Cake base, and is embossed with SU's newest folders, Designer Frames. (they are amazing! 2 in the pack for $8.50, a rectangle & an oval #123130) The large oval punch fits this embossed oval perfectly, so I layered some stamping on a pc of Very Vanilla & adhered. Stamped the dress form on Very Vanilla with Early Espresso & colored in a few details with Pool Party Stampin' Write marker. Fussy cut & adhere with dimensionals. Added a little word art at the bottom & a torn strip of Beau Chateau Designer fabric.
The fabric is my new favorite detail to many cards. A lot of stamper friends of mine wonder what to do with the fabric. I think the possibilities are endless! Trim, a substitute for ribbon, fabric flowers, backdrop for photos in a layout, gift wrapping, and then all of the actual sewing options!
The final detail is a little flower punched with Itty Bitty Shapes from Beau Chateau DSP, with a Vintage Trinkets metal button in the center, adhered with s glue dot.
Hope you enjoy.
