May ATC card (theme- feminine). There are a lot of steps, so this posting is long. Here's how to do it:

Here's what it will look like:
Isn't she beautiful.

I stamped the image on Shrinky Dink material with Staz On. I needed a lot of them so I stamped a lot, and cut them all out.

Now to the shrinking:

Using my Embossing gun (which worked a lot faster and really well as compared to using the oven). I held the stamped Shrinky Dink with a paper piercer (because it really curls and can get out-of-hand). As it shrinks I made sure to keep it flat. Also do this on a piece of chipboard then the Shrinky Dink does not stick to anything.

I added some "blush" to her cheeks with chalk.

For the card:

I used a old cardstock flash card and ran it through my Zyron to get it sticky on one side. I stuck it to a old clothing pattern. I did this to the other side as well. So both sides have vintage dress patterns on them.

On one edge of the pattern I stamped this old looking stamp (this will be seen under the girl I am going to add).

I made a paper edge to go with the whole card. (you'll see how it is used later)

It needed some depth, so I distressed the edges.

I printed a girl for my card using my computer and transparency paper.

Gluing it all together.

More assembly.

Added the paper decoration.

Added some vintage lace.

Now to attach the stamped Shrinky Dinks:
