Blossom Petals Dress Card

Hi Everyone,

This is the second card made at my first workshop, the first one being the Hand Bag Card. Is there a theme here or what? hmmm maybe, you'll have to wait and see what the next two cards are!

P1030393 (2)

This card was super easy to make – just a couple of Stampin Up punches required and some cardstock, embossing folders and a nice sentiment.

The bodice of the dress is made using the Round Tab punch. After punching the tab you turn one rounded end back into the punch to make the neck of the dress. Quite ingenious really – thank you to whoever invented it! It is then embossed using the square lattice embossing folder and decorated with ribbon and pearls.


The Skirt of the dress is the Large and Medium rounded petals punched with the Blossom Petals Builder punch. (I so love the versatility of this punch!) The larger ones are punched from the coloured cardstock (in this case it’s calypso coral) and then embossed with the Manhattan Flower embossing folder. The smaller ones are just punched out of whisper white cardstock and all the edges are sponged with matching ink.


This nice sentiment is from the Stampin Up set called Word Play.  The flourish is from the Stampin Up set called Vintage Vogue.

The dress is built and stuck down to a piece of Whisper White that is distressed and inked around the edges and then adhered to a Calypso Coral card base.

There you have it – super easy!

Don't forget that I'm a demonstrator now and can help you acquire the tools to make this card yourself! Just email me (it's on the sidebar) for any further information.

I’d like to share this card at the following blogs:-
