As you must have guessed by now I love making shaped cards. This one is a little different in that the front of the card is shaped but the back remains a standard card shape. To make this card I cut the dress from patterned paper from the First Edition 'Spring Feast' 8x8 stack. I also cut a shadow which was covered with pink paper. I placed the shadowed dress so that it slightly overlapped the fold of the card and drew around it. I cut around the pencil line and then adhered the shadowed dress to the resulting shape. The patterned paper dress was then adhered to the front of the card,on top of the shadow, with foam pads.
The inside back of the card was covered edge-to-edge with pink paper and a smaller piece of patterned paper adhered on top. The sentiment was cut from green patterned paper and adhered to a scalloped oval, which was fixed to the front of the card to the side of the dress. A miniature corsage with bow adhered to the dress bodice, and a bloom on the sentiment oval completes the card.
