Christmas Dress Gate Fold Card

Christmas Dress Gate Fold CardOther products: White, Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, Red, Gold and Silver Metallic cardstock; White Glitter cardstock; Black StazOn Ink, Lattice Corner Peel Offs, Want2Scrap amber and clear faux rhinestones, 1/8" foam tape

Instructions: Create a card base using white cardstock cut to 7" x 10". Score at one end at 2 1/2", then flip the panel around and score again at 2 1/2". This will create a gate fold that will fit the size of the oval. Cut two panels from the paper collection to 7" x 2 1/2" and adhere to the front of the card base. Die cut the lattice oval shape from red metallic cardstock using the Eyelet Oval Die. Position the die cut oval in the center of the card front and adhere it down to the left side of the card front only. Die cut the solid oval from silver metallic cardstock. Position the silver oval in the center of the card front, inside the red lattice oval. Adhere the silver oval to the right side of the card front panel. Stamp the dress image onto white glitter cardstock with Black StazOn Ink. Die cut the image using the coordinating die. Manipulate the bottom half of the dress so it curves outwards. On the backside of the dress, add 1/8" foam tape to the the center of the curve. Add adhesive to the top half of the dress and adhere the dress to the center of the silver oval. The foam square tape should help to hold the dimensional curve of the dress. Set prepared card aside and create the embellishments.

Die cut four of the small vines from Mossy Meadow cardstock using Cut Mat Create 2A die set. Next, create 15 tiny rose balls. Using a paper trimmer, cut Cherry Cobbler cardstock into 15 strips that are approximately 5" x 1/8". Spritz the strips lightly with water to soften the paper and fold in half length-wise. Using the curling tool from the Flower Shaping Essentials tool kit, curl the strips tightly and glue the end with a small dot of glue to create tightly curled balls. Squeeze the end of the little ball that is not the folded end (the folded end should be the top of the rose) to force the opposite end to flare out a little bit. From gold metallic cardstock, die cut the two pieces from the All Glammed Up Shoe Die that are needed to make a bow with a ribbon hanging down. Curl the ends of the bow piece inward and glue in the center to create the bow shape. Glue the ribbon piece under the bow.

Assemble the die cut leaves, bow and the little rose balls onto the dress as shown in the sample. Add faux silver rhinestones to the dress. Finish the card by embellishing with corner peel-off stickers and amber colored faux rhinestones.
