Vintage Dress Making Card

The base card is Anna Marie Designs kraft card, the corners have been rounded with a punch and I have stamped it with a Creata Script stamp.  This stamp is a really good size stamp approx. 13 x 19 cm, as I don't have an acrylic block this big I leave the stamp on the acetate backing.  I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink rather than black to give a softer finish.  The measure tape is washi tape from my stash.  I used pink tissue paper tinted with Vintage Photo Tim Holtz Distress Ink and stamped with Marianne Design Fabulous Fifties Quality stamps.  I folded and creased the patterns to given them a more authentic look.  The Creata lace is adhered with Cosmic Shimmer glue, as are the buttons which are from my stash.  The Suffolk puff was given to me by one of my crafty sisters, the vintage button, pins and safety pin are from my stash.  The dress is made from Creata patterned paper using origami folding and fixed on the card with foam pads, the orange ribbon is also from Creata.  I created the pattern on the dress using a heart stamp from Creata with Cranberry Adirondack ink.
