“Vintage Dress Form” Birthday Card

Edit: The project was featured in the May 31, 2011 issue of the Cricut Chirp!

This project was created for the Birthday Sundaes’ Challenge #10 – Pearls and Lace.

As soon as I saw this prompt, I knew that I wanted to use the dress form from the Summer in Paris cartridge and create a romantic, vintage-style birthday card. I started with a standard 5″x7″ card and layered it with designer paper. The background frame was cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge at 5.25″ and wrapped with twine.

The corner pieces were cut from the Storybook cartridge at 1.5″.
The dress form was cut at 5.75″ and I adhered several layers of lace on top of each other to create a tiered skirt. 
The sentiment frame was also cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge at 2.25″.
All of the cuts were inked and popped up on foam for added dimension. 
Products used:
Cricut cartridges: Summer in Paris, Elegant Edges and Storybook
K&Company Amy Butler Lotus Greeting Clear Stamp Set
Paper – K&Company – Life’s Journey and Recollections cardstock
