Last weekend, Jonny and I went to a wedding for a childhood friend. Of course I wanted to bring a card, but I wanted to try this technique I saw on Pinterest
. I googled a few other tutorials and finally settled on using them as guidelines and creating my own paper doily dress.
I didn't have the right sized doilies for the tutorials so I folded the first doily until I liked how it looked. :) I used the second doily by gluing it to some white cardstock and using a heart punch to create the bodice of the dress. Some tutorials said to cut the sides off but I kinda liked how it looked as the heart! So I left it. I glued the heart onto the top of the dress (first doily) without doing any cutting. If you're only going to put a small piece of ribbon around the waist of the dress, you may want to trim down the heart so nothing peeks through.
I found some retired SU! paper that matched perfectly with the card and used these cute flowers (also retired SU!) to be the waist of the dress. It needed a little bling so the rhinestones went perfectly. I REALLY loved how this card turned out and want to make a million doily dresses now. These would be super cute as any girly cards if you have different colored doilies, too!
