Fun & Elegant Dress Card

I've seen a few dress cards over the past few months and wanted to make one today for a girlfriend's birthday since she's all girlie!   I'm very happy how it turned out and hope she likes it!

I used my Gypsy, in shadow feature, and cut out 3 dress cuts from Gypsy Wanderings (the dress was 3.54 W x 5.08 L).   I decorated the top layer with different types of ribbon (secured by score tape starting from the bottom up), stamped small white flowers randomly and then added some pink bling.

The second dress layer was adhered to the back of the top layer so that the ribbon ends didn't show in the back.  The third layer of the dress was scored near the top of the dress and then score tape was added just above the score line and then this piece was adhered to the back of the top layer.  Does this makes sense?!?!?!

Goodies used ~ 
  • Cardstock - PTI Sweet Blush (dress)
  • Ribbon - PTI Raspberry Fizz Swiss Dots & Grosgrain 5/8"; Michael's misc. pink flower ribbon
  • Stamps:  PTI Stamps - Around & About,  small flower;  PTI Signature Greetings, "Hope your Day is Fabulous"
  • Ink - PTI Raspberry Fizz (for sentiment); ColorBox Frost White (small flower)
Thanks for stopping by.

Toodles,  Jude

P.S.  Added my card to Craft Junkie Too's T.G.I.F Linky Party - check it out!
