Creating Pretty Cards Week 2

February 14, 2012

I wanted to make another card for the Challenge at Craft Project Central and I was inspired by one of the cards entered the first week to rotate the sketch and create a special birthday card.

I have a “dress” which I created using the Scallop Circle Bigz Die and to save Designer Paper I cut a strip wide enough to cover the template and then cut three sections of the Scallop Circle Bigz Die  from the strip.  From the left overs I cut three more sections to create the “petticote” or trim for each layer.  To complete the dress I just traced around my template to get one full size dress and two shorter frills.  I used Mini Glue Dots at the “waist” of each of the shorter dress pieces and dimensionals under the frill of each section.  I wrapped the “waist” with Whisper White 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon.  My little flower is just a 1-1/4″ circle of Whisper White card stock which I cut in a spiral and rolled to create a small “rose”.  I cut the leaves using Old Olive card stock and the Two Step Bird Punch.  These are attached over the ribbon using Mini Glue DotsThe dress is attached to a piece of Whisper White card stock with one corner rounded.  I punched a long narrow strip of Wisteria Wonder card stock along one long edge using the Scallop Border Punch and attached it behind a piece of Pretty in Pink card stock.   The dress panel is attached on top and the whole piece attached to another layer of Whisper White card stock.  I wrapped the bottom with the very pretty Wisteria Wonder 3/8″ ruffled ribbon and tied a bow before attaching the whole piece to scored and folded Wisteria Wonder card stock.

I have two granddaughter’s celebrating birthday next month and I think this will make a great card for one of them.  What do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.

    I love the layered trim with the little bit of purple paper showing. Your little rose is so pretty and delicate. Great card! Thanks again for playing along with the Creating Pretty Cards Sketch Challenge at Craft Project Central.

    This is gorgeous, Kris! I know my grandaughter’s would love a card like this. This is such an innovative idea, and I certainly hadn’t thought of making a dress the way you have, so thanks for sharing the idea!
