Layered Doily Dress Card by Patti Hamil

Patti here today sharing a quick card using the Couture Creations Dazzling Doily Die from the Fantasia Collection. You can make a little layered dress easily from any of the circular dies!

Start out by die-cutting three doilies from solid cardstock. I used a light lavender color.

Cut three circles from a contrasting color of cardstock, two a little larger than the doilies and one just a little smaller. The smaller circle will be for the bodice of the dress and the two larger circles will be for the skirt.

To create the skirt, adhere a doily to one of the larger cardstock circles and fold as shown in the photo below. Repeat to create the second layer of the skirt.

Cut the remaining doily in half, adhere it to the smaller cardstock circle, fold in the edges and attach it to the layered skirt as show in the photo below.

Next comes the fun, embellishing the dress! I added a tulle bow and tiny punched blooms with Couture Creations Self Adhesive Pearls in Pink Blush for flower centers.

Assemble the rest of the card as desired. I added a sentiment tag, some lace and a piece of ribbon. My background is light pink and I used a scrap of patterned paper with lavender flowers. The Couture Creations Precision LED Tweezers make attaching the little pearls a breeze!

The possibilities are endless as to the look of these little dresses. Try creating smaller dresses for use on layouts as embellishments or as a decorative banner.

Thanks so much for dropping by! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
