Sew What?

Hey Scrapping Cottage fans! Angelica here with a sweet and simple card using the My Little Shoebox designs by CottageCutz.

The thing I LOVE about co-branding is that you can always find coordinating everything.
For someone just starting out in this hobby, that's important to know, because you'll know that no matter what, you'll always have something that matches. 
Cottage Cutz make it so easy to add that extra bit of "oompf" to your projects without spending a ton of time.

For this card, I used paper and some of the border strips from MLS' Sew Cute line (Spring 2011).

Design Tip: To create a bit of a shadow, I cut out an additional bodice for the dress form and simply offset it by just a bit. It's actually the same size as the front bodice! 

By layering journaling tags and die cuts you can punch from the collection, making a card like this is an absolute breeze (which is kinda the point! ;))!

I used a sentiment from Unity Stamp's kit also named "Sew Cute"! Don't they just fit together perfectly?

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you were inspired today!
Have a fabulous week, everyone!
- Angelica

REALLY cute card, Angelica! Love the little bit of sponging around the dress form, and the twine at the waist. The layering adds so much to this, and it doesn't look at all like a quick and easy card. Lots of great detail!!!
