Our Friendship is Tailormade: A Card for Creative Expressions

This month we have some gorgeous stamps to work with, some fun handbag stamps, and some gorgeous A5 Umount Antique Dressform stamps!! This week I decided to take out my dress form stamps and my Tim Holtz paper stash which features some great sewing papers and make a rather clean and simple card (for me, anyway!!).

I used the yummy Crowded Attic Paper Stash by Tim Holtz and chose the very appropriate sewing papers for this card. I edged them all with gorgeous Summer Blue Gilding Wax. Creative Expressions has a new formula for their gilding waxes, and though they were great before, they are even easier to apply now!

I used Perfect Medium and Detail Black Embossing Powder to stamp a gorgeous antique dressform onto the Spellbinders Labels 4 die cut. I tied some black bakers twine around the die cut and hung a gorgeous key from it, the lifted it up on the backing paper using foam tape. I stamped the sentiment "Our friendship is tailormade" with Jet Black Archival Ink. I finished it off with some stitching around the card's edge.

Simple, but I just love the stamp and the colors of the card. I hope you like it too!!
