For the Family Fashionista - CSC17

I turned the Dress Form die cut into a Christmas Card!



I started with PTI True Black cardstock and the die for Signature Series: Dress Form by Dawn McVey. The Santa hat was made from a tiny scrap of felt (sorry, not PTI), a pompom and a bit of chenille yarn. I added a snippet of tiny roped pearls and some gathered lace. The K&Company patterned paper was cut with the largest Spellbinders Nestabilities Label One, then cut in half and adhered to the PTI Vintage Cream card base. I layered two different ribbons to cover the space, both from Michaels. The Order Form from It's Official was stamped on Vintage Cream with Dark Chocolate and 'Tis the Season from Signature Christmas. I added a gold snowflake using a Martha Stewart punch and a festive bow. Lots of Vintage Touch inks were used to shabby up the edges. I'm really happy with this one so I'm going to submit it to some challenges and see what happens.

Hope you enjoyed your visit. Thanks for stopping by.
