# Anastasia Border # Antique Dress

The Dressmaker and Card Tutorial by Julie Lavalette


Hello everyone, it's JULIE here hosting the blog and today I am sharing a new style of card to "me" which I thought was a perfect style for my idea of a shop window. I had noticed this style of card being sold on the Craft Channels and thought I could easily makes this, so let me share with you how I made it.


I started by cutting 2 sheets of cardstock to measure 10 x 6 inches and then scored both sheets at 1.5", 2", 8" and 8.5". Next I glued my 6" square of paper in place on both my background layer and top layer. Once dry I die cut my aperture out using my Square Stacker Die, you will also notice I have added the Anastasia Border around the centre of my aperture and to the sides of my card. I also added strips of patterned paper onto my sides sections and glued both end panels on each side together.


My stylish ladies and dressmaker stamp from Crafty Individuals have been fussy cut and  glued onto my card with Silicone Glue.


I also added Die Cut flowers on to the Ladies clothes.


My sewing machine was Heat embossed with Black Frantage, adding some thread onto the spool and Gold Promarker pen onto the handle and base.


My corset was cut out in Maja papers, adding touches of lace and lots of pearls.


My dress I added lots of bling a tiny flower and placed onto my diecut hanger which was cut out in Kraft card adding a touch of Silver onto the hook. 


My tailors dummy was also cut out in Kraft cardstock. I then layered my dress on with a touch of Silicone Glue behind to hold the curved shape, adding lace and more tiny flowers.


I finished with touches of cheesecloth, tiny buttons, scissors and bobbins of thread.


I hope you feel inspired to make a card like this which folds flat for posting. You could also use different shapes of your Stacker Dies to create different style aperture windows.

Happy Crafting,
Julie x

  1. What isn't to love about this card? You've brought everything together beautifully. From the store front base, the Maja papers, Stylish Ladies stamp, and all of the sweet tiny die cut elements. I love the Vintage/Shabby Chic style.
