Anyone out there, besides me, old enough to remember playing with paper dolls as a kid? I remember getting some for Christmas many years ago and playing to my heart’s content. Basically Bare’s Dress Forms Set puts me in the mind of paper dolls because there are many different ways that I can dress them up. I mean, the possibilities are endless!!
For my card, I started with a chipboard dress form and a felt flower from the Blossoms & Leaves set.
I used WOW embossing powder in metallic copper to emboss the top and bottom posts on the dress form. This stuff melts like butter and is ever so shiny! Love it!
I traced the dress form onto patterned paper and then trimmed. TIP: I don’t use pencils to trace my elements, I use a stylus. I find that I can get closer to whatever I’m tracing and I don’t have to erase. Cool, right?!
After cutting from patterned paper, I adhered the paper onto the chipboard.
I inked the edges and then added a few embellishments: a piece of pom pom trim to the hem of the dress, a strip of tiny pearls to the neckline, and a flower and button to the waistline.
I decided that the white flower was too bright, so I used a paintbrush to paint it with silver sugar glimmer mist. I added a bow and half pearl to the button and then adhered to my project.
Here’s the finished card. I see many more of these little dress forms in my future; I simply cannot get enough of them!
Here’s a close-up of the Basically Bare elements.
