Party Dress

Well, some how it's slipped over in to July.  I'm not quite sure how that happened, although June was rather hectic full of birthdays.  Now it's the last day of Term 2 and I'm looking forward to spending the next two weeks with my kids AND having some me (creative) time!!

Birthday's have started to slow down since the craziness of June, but I still have a few to celebrate this month.  Today's card share is one I made for a little girl last week that was so purty, I hope to make some more!

I just love this card!  It's so cute for a little girl.  And while this idea is not my own, I loved making my own version of the little girl party dress for a sweet little girl that turned 6!

I used the Blossom Builder punch (that's sadly just retired) to punch out the petal pieces for the skirt.  I cut them from Vellum card and coloured them with Melon Mambo ink and a sponge dauber (oh inky fingers, well just a bit).   I used sticky strip (love that stuff) to layer them all together to form a skirt.

I've used another retired punch - the tab punch - to form the bodice of the skirt, tied a little bow around with crochet thread and added two jewels for buttons.  I also used a circle punch to cut out the neckline.  This little punch-art dress is so easy and so sweet!  You could always use other shapes for the skirt, such as ovals and circles and maybe hand-draw a bodice and cut away to your heart's desire!

Of course I also had to add a birthday greeting and the number six.  Just so we knew which birthday it was for!

So here's what I used:
Stamps: So Happy for You & Memorable Moments
Inks: Melon Mambo & Early Espresso
Papers: Whisper White & Melon Mambo CS, Melon Mambo DSP (from the patterned paper stacks)
Accessories: Blossom Builder, Circle & Tab punches, crochet thread, jewels, staples
Big Shot: Honeycomb Embossing Folder
