Dress Form Happy Birthday Card

Hello TRC Fans!  Today I made a vintage feel birthday card using a couple of stamp sets that are currently on SALE in The Rubber Cafe' website.  Today I am using Those Were Good Times and Laurels stamp sets to make my card.

This card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4".  That is my favorite size of card because there is plenty of space to add embellishments!!  I used some Prima 6x6 Romance Novel patterned paper for my first layer - cut to 5x5".  Then I cut a piece of vanilla cardstock to 4 3/4 x 4 3/4" and ran it thru my die cutting machine using the Darice Dressform embossing folder (kit subscribers received this in a past kit).  I cut a few little tag pieces from the patterned paper to embellish my card.  I stamped the bunting from Those Were Good Times stamp set onto various scraps of patterned paper and fussy cut it out!  Then I stamped the dressform twice - once on vanilla cardstock and once on patterned paper.  I fussy cut them out and layered it together.  After stamping the sentiment from the Laurels stamp set, I used a label punch to punch it out.  I tore a piece of patterned paper to put behind my sentiment and then added the ribbon and pearl flourish to complete the card.

Here is a close-up.....
