Dress Form

Good day my friends! I'm very exited to share my today's card. I used one of the Beccy's Place newest digi Dress Form. It is such a beautiful image. It comes with one pre-colored digi, one b&w line art and you also get a dress form without flowers.
Sentiment: "Happy birthday"

I love all the shabby chic cards I see in  others blogs, but this style is mystery to me. I don't know what shabby chic means. But I think it something with pastel colors, feminine, an old looking and shabby. I really don't know. Can someone please explain how one shabby chic card should look like :) Anyway, here is my first attempt to make card with this style. It probably not correct but I'm happy with it :)

This card goes to a special lady. She is almost blind. Sadly she can't see the beautiful stamp but I used lots of layers, dimension, pearls and fuzzy yarn, so hopefully she gets a slight idea about this card. Layer with dress form is popped up with foam tape and so is the dress form stand. Stand is covered with Glossy Accents. I'm going to improve the card and print out an extra layer of flowers and add them with foam tape too, then she can feel the flowers. I wish I thought about earlier...

Inside of the card is a pocket. I tied a little label to the pocket So everyone can sign it with their own hands. Edges of layers are distressed with scissors and after that I inked them with distress ink. The card base is actually white but I re-colored the edges with distress ink.

Materials Used:
Stamp: Beccy's Place - Dress Form
Papers: Rasberry Road Design - Circle of Friends Paper Set; white papers from my stash
Coloring: Promarkers
Inks: TH Distress inks - Tea Dye, Milled Lavender
Sentiments: Computer generated
