Let's Get Started:
Using the instructions/ guideline on the Martha Stewart Scoreboard, make a #10 envelope from a sheet of Soft Yellow Paper.
Card front -
Make the following paper cuts:
Cream paper - 9" X 8" (Score at 4", forming a 9" X 4" card base)
Grey- blue Shimmer - 8 3/4" X 3 3/4"
Plaid paper - 8 1/5" X 3 1/2"
Blue - 8" X 2 3/4"Adhere all the mats to the front of the card. The blue mat will not be centered, but placed to the left side of the other mats, leaving a greater margin on the right hand side.
Using the "Sewing Room" Bigz die and the Cuttlebug, cut all the pieces out of chipboard. Also cut the dress form from brown paper, the button and the body of the dress form from the yellow dots paper, and the spool from the kraft colored paper. Adhere the button top and the spool top to the chipboard using the Tombo Mono adhesive. Adhere the brown dress form to the chipboard as well. Cut the top spindle and the lower legs from yellow dots dress form. Take the body of the dress and adhere it to the dress form. Allow all the pieces to dry. Using the distress tool, distress the edges of the button and dress. Ink around the dress and button using the Pumice Stone ink and ink applicator. I added the ink deeper into the dress, to give it the appearance of having been on the dress form for a while. Ink around the spool edges using "Walnut Stain" ink. Tie a piece of blue ribbon around the waist of the dress form and through the hole in the button. Wrap more ribbon around the spool. Adhere all the pieces to the front of the card.
Inside of the card:
Cut the following pieces of paper:
Grey blue shimmer - 3 7/8" X 3"
Plaid - 3 5/8" X 2 3/4"
Blue - 3 3/8" X 1 1/2"Center the blue piece of paper in the xXxX stitching embossing plate from the "Pattern & Stitches" embossing set and run through the Cuttlebug. Adhere the mat pieces to each other, but not to the card at this time.
