New Round of Paper Dresses and a Freebie

Last year I made two dozen  Paper Dress Cards, I really enjoyed making them and sending them.  So much so, I made another round in the last two weeks.  This is a fun project to take with you and work on.  Using 6x6 papers and the back side  (rubber cushioned) of my Tim Holtz Stamping tool I was able to make dress while waiting for my client is a dental office!
 For the link to the video on making these little gems click on Paper Dress Cards highlighted above.

Before you start your own, just a tip: use paper, don't do this with card stock, scapbook sheets like the kind in the 180 sheet stack are perfect.


Last round I used a little of bits of ribbon, this round I kept it simple and used Hug Snug seam binding

Before I added the ribbon I used a little adhesive to keep the sides down and hold the ribbon to make the ribbon tying easy.











This makes the bow tying really easy!








I added a little bling - I really kept these pretty simple:



I cut the liners and background paper and then picked the best coordinating colors and put it all together







 I added my back stamp - My favorite verse I had made into a stamp:







I packaged these up without a sentiment, I will pick the appropriate on when I get reading to send the card on it's way.  This just makes it so much more versatile!


And for your Stash today:



Not the same era, but a great fashion image!
Thanks for stopping by and here is that post with the video link 
Have a great day,
