Elegant Lady Dress Card

I can't say that this idea was thought up by me, but I took it and made it better, in my opinion! This is a great way to use those scraps from all of your favorite designer series scrapbooking papers. What a nice card to give to your girlfrinds!

5 strips of your favorite designer series double-sided papers, Rose Red Cardstock, Very Vanilla Cardstock, Rose Red Classic Ink Pad, Time Well Spent Hostess Stamp set (or any other set with a heart in it that you like!)

Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" piece of Rose Red cardstock in two to make card base. Rub edges of 4 1/4 x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla onto Rose Red ink pad. Use sponges if you want a more subtle look, do without sponges if you want a more dramatic effect. Adhere piece of Very Vanilla to front of card. Lay out and adhere strips of scrapbooking paper to card. Stamp heart from Time Well Spent stamp set on Rose Red Cardstock in Rose Red ink. Cut out and adhere to top of skirt on card front. Use scrap of your favorite coordinating color for waistband. In this sample, I used Chocolate Chip. You can also embellish waistband and flower on top with rhinestone brads, pearl brads, or dazzling diamonds glitter adhered with 2-way glue. Go crazy! If you so choose, you can also stamp a sentiment along the top or bottom, or leave blank to use as a card for any occasion!
