Scallop Circle dress and directions

Posted by on April 4, 2011 in Greeting Cards, Tutorial | 13 comments

It’s been a while since I made some of these cute dress cards so I thought the “Greenhouse Gala” DSP would be perfect for a party dress:

The front of the cardstock is embossed with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and Pear Pizzazz cardstock. The dress is die-cut with “Greenhouse Gala”DSP and Vellum Cardstock (also die-cut the same way, just cut in half at the waist and layer the top and bottom pieces so they peek out a little). The belt is Pear Pizzazz ribbon and Pearls are added to the bottom scallops. The greeting from Perfect Punches is stamped in Peach Parfait on Whisper White cardstock and punched with the Wide Oval punch. Everything is popped up with Dimensionals.

Here’s the dress pattern:

Start by die-cutting the Scallop Circle die with scrap chip board. I drew in the measurements after I sketched out the first dress since some people are more comfortable with exact numbers 🙂 All you really need to do is sketch out a dress form with 4 scallops at the top and 8 at the bottom.
Once you cut one side off, you can actually flip that piece over to the other side so the dress is very symmetrical
.
Once you have your dress form, simply cut your cardstock to 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ and die-cut from the Scallop Circle die. You don’t need to cut the whole scallop circle since the side parts are not used so that will save you a little paper 🙂

  7. I am new to this, what size circle do you start out with?

    • Hi Vickie, I used the Scallop Circle die which measures about 4 1/2″ across. I also provide video tutorials for different projects at my YouTube channel: link to youtube.com. Please let me know if I can be of more help 🙂

  8. Just saw this, a great idea

    off sides as wings I think!
