Hi Stampers! Hello from sunny Las Vegas, NV. Well, actually Henderson, NV – but if I look at the horizon, I can see the Vegas strip. We are here for my sister in laws wedding. But, my son lives here too – so we get to see him, his fiance and our soon to be grand daughter. Which brings me to the Princess Dress card. I made this card with a little girl in mind. It’s made using the “retired” Dress Up framelits. But, the good news is that they are currently on the clearance rack, marked down from $24.95 to $14.99. So, as you assemble your stock up and save order (October 1-6th, 15-20% off select items) – check out the clearance rack for more great deals!
This card starts out with a Daffodil Delight card base – cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Gold Foil paper, then a 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Whisper White. For the dress. I used the framelits to cut one full dress in Daffodil Delight card stock, 5 more skirts in Daffodil Delight card stock and 3 skirts in Whisper White. (To get the skirt, I just laid the skirt part of the dress onto the card stock so I cut the dress without the top.) I layered the dresses on top of each other to get the ball gown look I wanted. Three skirts on top, three on the bottom and the 3 Whisper White pieces just sticking out of the bottom to look like a petticoat. I them used the leaves from the Flower Flair Framelits to get the shoulder pads and the little flair at the waist. No princess dress is complete without a little bling. So, I added a rhinestone to the top and the two way glue pen with dazzling diamonds glitter to the skirt.
For the inside of the card, I used a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White and stamped Happy Birthday in Daffodil Delight ink. The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Age Awareness photopolymer stamp set.
There you have it – a birthday card fit for any princess!
