- Instead of pulling the paper out to create the sleeves, I tucked them in and used Tear & Tape to secure them.
- I cut the Metallic Mesh Ribbon in half to give the petticoat two layers. I attached the Mesh Ribbon with Tear & Tape.
- I added additional Tear & Tape to the back of the dress to keep all the folds secure.
- Dress 5 x 5 Like an Animal Specialty DSP
- Polished Pink cardbase 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4
- Smoky Slate 4 x 5 1/4 and scored at 2
- Basic White 4 x 5 1/4
- Like an Animal Specialty DSP 2 x 5
- Basic White scrap for greeting tag
- Ribbon for the bow is 10 inches
- The ribbon for the sash and the Metallic Mesh Ribbon measurements are up to you.
- After cutting and scoring all the cardstock and DSP I attached the Basic White 4 x 5 1/4 piece to the Polished Pink cardbase and then attached the Like an Animal DSP to the Basic White piece. I used Multipurpose Glue for both.
- Next, I used the Essential Tag Punch to create the legs of the Smoky Slate screen. I then embossed the Smoky Slate piece using the Cascading Ruffles 3D embossing folder. I then attached it to the Polished Pink cardbase with Multipurpose Glue.
- Stamp the birthday greeting form Nature’s Prints in Polished Pink and use Paper Snips to create the banner. Attach this piece to the dress with Tear & Tape.
- Attach the dress to the card using Dimensionals.
- Add Rhinestones to the card for a finishing touch.
