Little Girl's Dress Card


Back to kiddie cards J. I’ve seen a lot of girl’s dress cards but I couldn’t find one that is shaped exactly the way I would want it to look so I created my own design and made the template in Studio from scratch. I’m still struggling with manipulating the nodes/points in the ‘Point Editing’ tool so this template turned out to be the most challenging yet. The most difficult part was perfecting the lines and curves of the collar to fit the neckline of the dress exactly.  I must have tweaked the collar and the neckline of the apron a thousand times before I was pleased with the outcome.  Ughhh, there goes Ms. Perfectionist again! My trash basket was full of rejected trial cuts before I got to the final dimensions and moved on to creating the actual card. And then there was always the struggle of color and material choices, what embellishments to use, the wordings for the sentiments, the font style and so on. You would think that I was designing a dress for a red carpet event, LOL!  You all can see in each and every card that I’ve created how much thought, time and effort were put into it. This little girl’s card turned out to be so much cuter than I expected. I can’t stop looking at it :).  Sooooo very happy!!! This card will be great for a little girl’s birthday, baby shower, to welcome a newborn, for christening, a party invitation, birth announcement, or just to cheer up a little girl.
 
And here is the best part. Yes, I’m sharing the template for free!

  3. Gayle...another AWESOME card. Your choices in pattern and colours help make it so adorable. The end result shows how much care and attention to detail you put into your creations. Only boys in my family but would really like to have the template(or .jpg) of files.

    This card is beautiful. I can so relate to designing. One reason I love KNK Studio GE for the Silhouette is its ease in adding and deleting nodes. I can imagine how frustrating it is as I design sometimes too.
    I cannot say enough about this beautiful card. I keep thinking you can't create something better, and then you go and raise the bar again by doing just that.
