Dance to your own music

Good morning!  Alicia blogging today with a feminine card using the Frantic Stamper Pleated Dress die.  Since I have four nieces I am sure this die will come in handy.  I envision sweet little dresses and formal prom dress for cards and perhaps party invites.  For today, I went with a sweet little floral dress but I can see the possibilities are endless!

As always with a new die, I cut it out in plain white paper and played around a bit.  I found I liked when I used two cuts of "pleats" for the bottom of the dress.  First I used an accordion fold on the "pleats" with the help of a bone folder to really make them crease. To adhere my two pieces of "pleats" I simply used a strip of tape runner along the inside edge of the top piece.  When adhering my bottom to the card I used plenty of tape to keep the pleats in place.  

There are three choices for "tops".  I like this one for this dress, it was a little less formal.  Finally, I tied a bow from some ribbon and adhered to the waist with glue dots.  I finished off the card with some sequins, another die cut layer and matching papers.
