ID: MC Apr/16 - Quill - Mannequin - ECD Hello - The Secret - HB  card
size: 6.5"w x 7"h

Created: April 3, 2016

I was in one of my moods to use a mannequin and my favorite design is from Lorelei. I don't have the stamp (and it's discontinued...) so I hand drew it and then cut it out.

One of the NEWEST "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Hello"), designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE ). 

I'm also using a quote and a couple sentiment stamps  from Quietfire Design  

("The Secret of Happiness..."); ("We Cannot Tell... " 2 pce companion set); ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7 pc set)


Scored and folded my cream toned card. Stamped the background lace (Harmonie - sorry discontinued...) inking with Versafine "Vintage Sepia and clear embossing.

Die cut the lace (Joanna Sheen "Grace Lace Border") from a pale pink pearlescent scrapbook paper. Adhered to front on a diagonal.

Stamped the ruler (Lost Coast Rubber "Border Measuring Tape") using Versafine Black Soot, sponged with a dirty brown sponge and trimmed down. Adhered to edge of lace piece.

eCut the button border (Flourishes "Country Charm Borders"), colored each button using Distress mini pads in various colors, stamped and clear embossed. adhered beside the tape.

Drew the mannequin on beige cardstock, inked the lines with a Zig Writer, sponged with Distress, embellished with small yellow quilled flowers, a die cut butterfly flourish (Memory Box) and some die cut leaves cut from left over scrap paper towel adhered to cardstock. Added some white pearl flourishes, and a gold narrow ribbon on the waist. Adhered to front.

Die cut the "Hello" from the scrap paper towel cardstock, adhered to card and applied Glossy Accents.

On the inside: Stamped the quote and sentiment using the black and clear embossed.

"Sew Glad" was die cut letters I had made previously using Elizabeth Craft Designs "Alphabet Caps 1" die set and Color Burst decorated cardstock. Die cut the oval using the Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Oval" set. Sponged with a dirty brown sponge. adhered to inside.

Cut the happy birthday word between the words and splayed it a bit to curve around the oval. stamped with the black and clear embossed.

eCut the fabric/pin cushion image (Flourishes "Stitched For You"), stamped with the black, colored with Prisma colored pencils. Used a Quickie glue pen on the pin heads and sprinkled with gold glitter.
