All Dressed Up

Morning Crafty Friends!

I've had my eye on this little frock for a while and I'm here to share it in a Summer version.  It's such a versatile dress; it could created as a white or pastel colored wedding dress, a formal "Black Tie" Gala version in black or shortened for a Spring Tea or Brunch.

I die cut the dress in cream card stock and in pale yellow, then pieced the bodice to the skirt and added a little yellow hem.  I adorned it with a little cluster of stitched flowers and satin ribbon at the waist.  Just like playing with paper dolls!

I created the tone-on-tone background by stenciling Peony Blossoms with light colored ink onto paper which is just a few shades darker than the ink color.  Then I added a second cream paper panel and layered it all on a top fold card.  Simple and fun---not too formal for a Summer party.  

Be sure to pick up this pretty Beaded Dress die and make your own fashion statement.

 Happy 4th!
