First and most importantly thank you all so much for your prayers this past week! … They mean so so much to me!… Hugs to you all!!

This is my BBTB2 Design Team card for this week ….. We were to use the dress form cut from Forever Young… and this is what I came up with… the paper I used did all the work on this card… so the layout is very simple… the paper is from Tim Holtz and there is a picture of the paper pack on my video…. Be sure and check out the other beautiful projects the design team made over at BBTB2... Thank you so much for stopping by to see my card!… Hugs, Jeannie

Forever Young
Dress Form and its layer… I cut two of the top layer cut @ w 1.58 x h 4.30 … on the Cricut I would cut these @ 4 ¼ inches.

I used my paper trimmer to cut the frames piece for the pictures…the pictures came from the paper pack… and were perfect for this card… I could just see these ladies making their pretty dresses using a dress form… the pictures were 1 x 1 ¼ inches…so I cut the frames ¼ an inch wider and taller at 1 ¼ x 1 ½..

Card base is 4 ¼ x 5 ½, Frame Piece 4 x 5 ¼ , Background piece 3 ½ x 4 ¾… these cuts are on the inside and outsides of my cards… Sentiment piece 2 ¾ x 4 inside only….. I cut all of these with my paper trimmer.

The large square and the smaller square were placed on the mat as a guide for me so I would know if the pictures once framed were going to fit on the page....and if the dress form would fit beside them...I deleted these before cutting.

Thank you for making a video to go with this. I never knew to ink like that!! I'm always so impressed with your inking and could never get the look. Now I know what you've been doing. I'm so excited!! This is the first video I've seen of yours so I'm glad you gave the "Don't overthink" advice. I needed it!
Now to your gorgeous card... It's beautiful. Everything is so lovely and I just love how all the papers go together. Wonderful, wonderful job!!

Jeannie, Your card is very wonderful and I like the way you totally used the paper to the fullest.

Alice said...

OH Jeannie,
I hope you are feeling a little bit better. Remember your health comes first ok =)

This is such a wonderful card. I remember when I was in Paris and some of the local tailoring shops had dress stands. It was quite neat!
THe choice of papers give it that vintage feel. Always nice when the paper just brings out your cuts a little more....

Now if only I had that type of figure to wear the dress....

Great job!
