Wedding Dress

We have a family wedding coming up in a few weeks and I have a couple of cards to make. This is an adaptation of one I made earlier ( you might think it's familiar!) but I've used my new Tonic Studios Simplicity Geared Border punches this time and here's how I did it...




1. Cut a circle using the outside of the smallest Tonic Studios Circle Shape Mate



2. Punch 2 shapes side by side around the circle using the Tonic Studios Daisy Border punch.
(in the same way as shown HERE)
3. Mark the centre of the top of the circle , then make 2 marks 1cm either side  as above  and cut from these two outside marks to each side of the Daisy punches

4. Make a long mark from the centre of the top and  2 marks 0.25 cm from the top on each side


5. Using the Tonic Studios Dotty Border punch and the marks  as guidelines. punch on both sides of the centre to make the waist.

6. You can then use a thin embossing tool to draw lines on the dress from the waist to the side


6. Punch 2 Dotty Border shapes side by side

7. Mark and cut as shown in the photo above.
This is the bodice.
Stick this piece to the back of the skirt part.

I added the little cutouts from the Daisy Border punch, some Stickles and a few gems to finish
