Dress Card Tutorial with Maya

Hello Samantha Walker fans!

Today I am going to share a tutorial how to make this adorable dress card. Perfect for little girls that you may know (and not so little girls as well!). 

Download the 'may all your dreams...come true' card from Silhouette Online Store. That's how the cut file looks like after opening it in Silhouette Studio.

I decided to use papers from Samantha's 6x6 paper pads. First I cut the dress shapes from pink paper from "Giddy Up" girl paper pad. I love that the paper is double sided! I am using both sides of the paper for the dress.

More dress parts from the same pink paper.

Now the belt, the underskirt and the sentiment using the blue paper from "Cool Summer" 6x6 paper pad. 

Yellow wave using the yellow paper from "Cool Summer" 6x6 paper pad. I rotated the shape to make sure it will fit the 6x6 paper taking advantage of the fact that it is actually 6x6.5.

The last step - white card base.

Everything is cut out and ready to go.

Let's put the dress together - my favorite part!

I wanted to give it a little 3d effect so I added small pieces of foam tape between the skirt layers.

I mounted everything on yellow card piece of paper from "Cool Summer" paper pad and added few jewels.

That was really fun! I am sure I am not the only one who loved playing with paper dolls. That comes really close. Check Samantha's online store for more dresses. How cute is this "Party dress"? Or maybe the "Princess Dress"? They will look adorable on a card or layout or even home decor project.
