Dolled-Up Birthday Card - Part 2

Dolled up birthday card

Did you see the Dolled-Up Birthday Card Kit I wrote about yesterday? I mentioned that I created the card from scratch since I already had all the supplies on hand.

In case you want to give it a go yourself, I thought I'd add a few details and the supply list.

To create the focal image, the dress form is cut from First Edition Designer Series paper using the Big Shot and the Dress Up Framelits. The large floral image from the Elements of Style stamp set is stamped across the die-cut piece using black Staz-On.

The floral image is lightly watercolored using an Aqua Painter with Old Olive and Rose Red ink. TIP: Because the paper is thinner, don't allow the Aqua Painter to become overly wet. You can also dab the colored image with a paper towel if it does become too wet.

Once the image is colored, the dress form and the doily are both lightly sponged with Soft Suede ink using a Sponge Dauber, to add a distressed vintage look.

This was lots of fun to create and whether you buy the Dolled-Up Birthday Kit or make it from scratch, like I did, it is still going to be a great card to give and a great card to receive!
