Baby Dress Card

Is this not the cutest baby card you have ever seen? I sent a bunch of my cards to work with my daughter yesterday and she sold a bunch of them and got special orders for several more. This is one of the special requests and I just had the most fun making it - even though it must have taken me several hours to do. That's ok though...I enjoyed every minute of it! I found the template on the SCS site but had to make so many changes to it to get it to work for me so I really can't give you a template for it. I'm in the process of working on getting my Silhouette to cut it but can only get it to make a much smaller card which is not what I want. My hubby and I spent a few hours this morning trying to get it to work but couldn't so if you are an expert with the Silhouette...please email me if you can help out!!! Anyways...the base of the card is white cardstock and then is covered with the pink SU paper at certain spots. The white is a Swiss Dots embossing folder. It took 2 swipes to get it all covered so that was tough. I just went back with my embossing tool and punched out any dots that were flattened by running part of it through the folder twice. It worked! The ribbon is some beautiful silk ribbon from Sharon Johnson. The buttons are probably 15 years old or older from my sewing days! And the lace is also from my sewing stash! Yes, I made all of my daughter's clothes up until she was about 10 years old. She was the best dressed girl in town and often got sent to the principal's office to show off her pretty dresses! No joke!!! This dress reminds me so much of some of the dresses I made for her when she was a baby! My baby is now 6 feet tall!!! Have a great day and I'll try not to ramble as much tomorrow!
