Tres chic


Here I am with my second post today as promised. After reading a mag I was keen to have a look at a website wit free vintage digital designs which you can find here. Not all the images are to my taste but I did find several that I liked and this dress form was one of them. I have distressed all the edges and used DI Vintage Photo. Papers are some new MME Dilly Dally. I have used a new tool, again which I saw in a mag and thought looked good. It is Sew Stamper and I bought the blanket stitch head which fits into my Sew Easy handle. It's self inking and you simply roll it along the paper. I also stamped a Tim Holtz corner scroll onto the green paper. The lace is from my stash and I threaded some ribbon through the holes in the lace. A few pearls and some scattered roses to finish.

Hi Marianne, Such a beautiful vintage card ... I really like this style on other people's card but just know I wouldn't like my own ... a bit like buttons lol! However, did you spot the button on my most recent card ... and you will be surprised to hear I really like it :-)
