The Card Story: My little niece is having her 7th birthday in mid-June! She is a beautiful child with gorgeous eyes and hair and very much a girly girl. I decided a very pink card would be just right for her with a lovely lacy pink dress to grace its front. . .very girly girl!
Out came the Stampin' Up Dress Up Framelits for the dress form, but I decided to use the Spellbinders' Decorative Dress Forms dies for the little puffy sleeve dress, using only the bodice and cupcake liners for its skirt. Note: I did have to trim the dress a bit from under the arms and down to the waist to make it fit perfectly. To do this, after cutting the puffy sleeve dress with the die, I cut off the skirt about 1/2" below the waist (as it is shorter waisted than the Framelit dress form), I traced the dress form outline onto my cut bodice and cut along the traced lines, and I trimmed out the curve of the bodice neckline just a bit to add paper doily lace to its new lower scoop, as well as to the bottom of the puff sleeves. The shoulders of the two dress dies match perfectly. I sponged the bodice top with the Stampin' Up Pretty in Pink (retired) ink pad to blend with the skirt color a bit better. I gathered one organza rosette cut from ribbon trim, making it into a little flower bud and sponging it with the same ink to add to the dress waist. I was pleased with my little pink dress for Audrey's birthday card. I hope she enjoys her card as much as I enjoyed making it.
Following is a picture of the card and the little verse I made to go inside. Again, I apologize for the blurriness. As before, the equipment available to me while traveling is not what I use to when at home. I do hope you can enjoy the card and can visualize it as if it were shown to perfection.
