Change of A Dress Cards

Well, it's been quite a week so far!  Definitely one of those weeks. 

You know the ones, when you're trying to get your taxes done at the last minute and your computer decides to become ill, and then reports that you need to run decide to have errors instead, and the printer decides to act up and run out of ink when the ink is packed in some box somewhere you can't find, and you're not getting your emails because the new address accounts you created last week decide to disappear into thin air…

Let's just say I've had some technical difficulties! Geesh!

But, finally, the computer is running again, the reports are working, the printer is cooperating, my email addresses are re-created, and my tax information is almost ready for the meeting with my accountant tomorrow.  Whew!  Thank goodness I can get back to my blogging now! 

Change of A Dress

Now, for a little trivia!  Did you know that there are such things as "change of a dress" cards?  No, not the post office kind.  The letting-people-know-you've-moved-with-a-cute-greeting-card kind:

Change of a dress

How appropriate for my recent address change!  Of course, I would never buy a card!  *gasp*  But, it's a great idea for making an "We've Moved!" card!  I'll have to see what I can come up with…

In the meantime, and fitting with the dress theme, this moving card reminded me of a couple of lovely dress cards that Peggy Tassler shared with us at the last Stamp Club event.  Here's the first one…

Peggy - pink & black dress

Isn't it darling?!  She free-handed the dress shape that folds on the left side.  (I've seen similar dress cards folded at the top, too.)  I love the Blushing Bride and Black color combination!  Peggy used the Elegant Bouquet Impressions Folder to emboss the black skirt, then spritzed it with Vanilla Frost Smooch Spritz.  The polka dot ribbon belt is accented with stacked flowers from the Boho Blossoms Punch and topped with a Basic Rhinestone Jewel.

Here is another version that Peggy shared.  This one uses the retired Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper with a Scallop Edge Border.  The Rich Razzleberry skirt is embossed with the Elegant Bouquet Folder.  The second photo is of the inside of the card, decorated to look like a petticoat!  So pretty, inside and out!

I found this similar Dress Card Template online to help you get a good dress shape if you need help like me!  Have fun with this one!  Try it for a bridal shower, an invitation, a sweet 16 birthday, and so much more!  Dress it up or dress it down depending on the occasion.  Then, let me see what you've made!
