Polka Dot Dresses

Today's card features Polka dot dresses. They together with the paper was a download. Downloads are great and so easy - you just print them out and cut them out and make up your card and there is such a huge variety of sites out there offering downloads.
Now these days what I think is also fabulous are Digital Stamps. There are more and more companies offering Digital Stamps these days. What is a digital stamp you ask yourself - its a downloadable image that you buy and download onto your computer. When you want to use it on a card, you just locate the image on your computer, resize if necessary and print it out. You then have image to color in etc and use on your card. Now just think of the possibilities - with digital stamps you can usually resize them so if you are making a Moo card you can make the image tiny or if you are making A4 card you can make the image bigger - fabulous idea I think. Of course the best thing is no storage worries - after all you can store thousands of images on your computer and they don't take up much space. Some companies that offer digital stamps include
Now on to today's card.
I used black cardstock for the cardbase. I then printed out backing swirl/dot paper and went around edges with pink colour box ink pad and then attached to cardfront. I then printed out Dresses and cut them out and went around edges with Color box ink pad and attached them to the cardfront using foam dots. I then ran strip of black cardstock through my Big shot using Cuttlebug embossing folder and attached it to cardfront as shown and added a metal word charm - Passion for Fashion and some Prima flowers with a jewel brad and rhinestones. I also then punched a couple of small daisies with a punch and added them with a rhinestone to the waist of the dresses.
More tomorrow about digital stamping.
