Mrs. Claus is fashionable!

This is another card recently created for my Variety Card class. I used a technique previously lifted and used from Mandy Leahy. You can check out her instructions of how to make these dresses on her blog, by clicking on her name.

We used "Believe" patterned paper and the zip strip on the end, also. The dress was cut at 3" and scored across every space, leaving one open half way, to be cut for the top of the dress. We folded the skirt up, then flattened it out and added Liquid Applique. This is the best "snow" for paper is just amazing stuff.

The dress form is from Tailor-Made and the sentiment is from Christmas Love. We used some retired Topiary embellishments and my trusty corner/scallop maker for the border. We also used a Topiary marker to adjust the words on the zip strip to read Mrs. Claus.
