Dress Card

Hello blog friends!
Today I'm showing you a card I made for my 
Godchild, Andrea.
Andrea turned 4 the other day and there was a 
party on Sunday.
She is a very girlie girl and loves her dress up 
clothes and her Barbies.
I thought this card turned out perfect for her.
I already had a pattern that I had created for 
another project for the bodice of the dress,
so I traced that onto some card stock and cut it out.
For the skirt, I used a coffee filter.
I simply folded it a few times until it was the
size I needed, folded over the point 
that was the center of the filter,
wrapped it around the bodice and 
used ATG tape to adhere it.
I cut a scallop along the bottom and used
a gold pen to make dashes around the skirt to 
finish it off.
The 'belt' is some twisted cording/beading that
I had in my stash.
I had picked up a paper stack around Christmas
time for a very reasonably price, that was all 
gold foiled papers, the background paper is from that
stack, I don't remember the company name on it, but I 
picked it up at Michael's
The "Happy Birthday" is 
heat embossed with WOW
gold glitter embossing powder.
I think the card was a big hit,
I love how it turned out.
My niece said it was perfect for Andrea.

Thanks for stopping by today,
hope you will come again soon.
Until then, Happy Crafting!
