Dressed to the best!

I have gotten several cards with this dress pattern on it and finally figured out how to scallop the edges. I made the first card out of some paper that I down loaded from the Gina K design website I love blue & brown together. The card is SU and so is the small dots in Chocolate DSP. I scalloped the edge of the card and then inserted a small strip of Chocolate small dots on the inside of the card. I had some perfectly matched ribbon to go along the waist and around the hat. And the mini butterfly how totally sweet. I need to fine tune the hat I thinks its a little big for the size of the dress.
This second card is my favorite I love the halter strap or ribbon. Its so cute with the double scallops at the top & bottom of the dress. This is some downloaded paper again from Gina K. Like I said I love the pink & brown combo also and this was so much fun to make. Now I find the easiest way to scallop the top and bottom of the dress is to use my Giga oval scalloped punch its so much easier than the border punch.
Last card I used SU cardstock and yes SU DSP. Then I used a Cuttlebug folder for the second layer. The ribbon was some I found at Michael's for a $1 and its a perfect match to this paper. I didn't even realize the hat had all brown on it until I pulled up the picture on the computer tonight. So much for my coordinating habits, I think these are darling cards and can be used for so many occasions. How cute would these be for birthday invites for your daughters, if you wanted they could be brides maid cards with the color of the dress the same as the real one. Thank you Michele and especially Rhonda for sending me the darling cards and Rhonda for the dress pattern. Now go try making one!
Ok all of you have a wonderful Sunday and if you think about it send someone a RAK just because.
God Bless.
