Happy Birthday to my neighbor and dear friend Lynne. Lynne is an avid seamstress and I always make her a sewing related card. I think I collect way too much sewing stuff because I would love to be able to sew. In fact when I grow up and retire, I plan to take sewing lessons and quilting. Oops, I am gettiing off track. When I received the new Stampin Up Spring Catalog I fell in love with the All Dressed Up stamps #129174 and the coordinating Dress Up Bundle #131095. The background DSP is from the fabulous Print Poetry DSP Paper Pack #129312. How cute is the sewing related paper? I also cut the dress and apron from thie Printed Poetry workshop. I pieced the apron to the dress and then hid it with a piece of primrose satin stitched ribbon and added a flower at the waist. The dress was added to the manequin that was embellished with pearls. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up set called Pattern of Friendship. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of the Canvas Creations sheet. I then edged the canvas with pinking sheers. I love this card and know that Lynne will too.
Warning….. I am obsessed with this die so there are many more dress cards forthcoming. I am thinking it is related to my paper doll obsession from my youth.
