I saw a project someone made at convention last year that created the dress part of this card using cardstock and a paper napkin. Then, when I was looking for ideas for using the Stampin’ Up! designer fabrics, I ran across some cards that used the dress and put it onto a standard card base. Cute, right?
I originally found instructions from Lorraine Castellon-Rowe’s blog and then started playing with the fabrics and papers I had around. Because I wanted to use the swirly pattern from the Deck The Halls fabric set, I decided to use my swirly pattern Texturz Plates for my BigShot to emboss the background piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
To make the dress bodice, I used a series of punches:
Then embellish as you like. I used the adhesive pearls and added some ribbon to the waistline but you could get creative with gems, buttons, embossing, or whatever sounds fun to you. The skirt was just run through the BigShot using the Scallop Square die though I think for future cards like this, I would probably use the new Scallop Square Duo die. And then adhere to the back of your bodice.
It’s a fun card and one you could make in so many variations to be a perfect match for the recipient of the card. I hope you enjoy this project!
