Welcome Baby Girl!

No. no. we did not have a baby! Friends of ours did. I made the Sugar & Spice album as a gift and needed to create a card. Since I am surrounded by only boys, or rather growing young men, in my house, I don't often get to make girlie things. So I went looking for inspiration. I found this picture of these gorgeous little dresses over at So Sweet Boutique. Aren't they adorable?

And then it hit me... I can make this! So I set out to create a baby girl dress as a card and here is how it turned out. What do you think?

Here is how I made it. I drew a template for the dress and then cut it from pink and white cardstock. I ran a loose stitch through some white tulle to gather it and attached that. I wrapped ribbon around to be the bodice and attached some roses created by gathering pink ribbon. The leaves are simple loops that I made from green ribbon. Then I attached the white cuffs to the sleeves and added the pearl lace to the bottom of the skirt and sleeve cuffs. Voila!

I hope to share the template with you, once I make it look a bit nicer. Right now it's just my sloppy sketching. But first I need to tend to some other things... like getting some of those boys in my life off to basketball practice!


  1. that is the cutest card.. awwww!!!

  2. Cathy, this is GORGEOUS!!! So pretty! It looks like a real dress! I love all the details...just perfect!
