Dress card by Diana

Hello! Diana Fisher here with you today to share a tutorial on how to make this darling dress card from one of Samantha Walker's newest dress Silhouette files.

After you download the studio file, separate the pieces and set them into separate corners on your mat. You can then load all of the paper at once and make one cut. 

You can see here that I choses a palm tree pattern paper from Samantha Walker's collection Summer Lovin' from Carta Bella for my dress pieces, cream card stock for the dress base and a green card stock that matches the palm trees for the dress straps and center accent. 

After I cut them, here is what they look like off of the mat. 

After assembled, here is the pretty little dress. I resized this to just a little over three inches wide so it will fit the card, so you can image how small and cute it is assembled here. 

I want the dress to pop off of the card, but not be all alone on a white card base, so I get to work making a background with a large background stamp. I also cut a label using my die cutter to anchor the dress to the card. 

For a final touch, I tie some gold twine around the waist of the dress and then use foam adhesive to pop up the label off the card base and then the dress off the label.

The finished card is just perfect for sending a quick "thinking of you" note to a friend.
