Gingersnaps Creations: Coffee and Cream

Here is my quick and simple submission for the Gingersnaps Creations Challenge:  Coffee and Cream.  Had some fun creating a matching envie too.  The dressform was cut with my Cricut using the Summer in Paris Cartridge.  I stamped the top half with a script background stamp using Tea Dye Distress ink and inked the edges as well as the stand with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The sentiment was computer generated, cut out and distressed then adhered on top of text and cs punched with Martha Steward Doily lace border punch.  The main card was stamped with a threaded desgin before the inked text was layered on top.  The main background was embossing with Provo Craft embossing folder:  Houndtooth. A simple decrotive brad was used on top of the dressform. And finally, the lace around the waist was tucked down with one of Tim Holtz mini safey pins from his Idea-ology line.

I like this - it is very elegant looking. I love the use of the dress form but also that embossing. Nice touch!

I really like that you also have a matching envelope - it really looks great.
