Red Ribbon Dress Card {Frosted Designs}

This week's challenge at Frosted Designs is to use ribbon or twine on your project.  I have been wanting to make a ribbon dress for a while, so I thought this would be a great time to do it!  My cousin had a birthday last month and every year I get later and later at sending her a card.  Thank goodness she forgives me!!!

I cut out this girl from Forever Young at 6".  I took some red satin ribbon, adhesive and tape and got started.

I put some ATG tape along the bottom of the dress.  I folded the ribbon over the adhesive.

I used scotch tape to fasten the ribbon to the back of the dress.

I kept layering more ribbon on the dress until I got to the arms.  I cut off the arms so I could wrap the ribbon around to the back.

When I got to her waist, I quit folding the ribbon and just adhered it flat.

Here is what the back looks like.

I took a thin silver glittery ribbon to make a sash.

I cut out a second girl and glued her to the back.  This hid my ends and also gave me a smooth surface to adhere to the card.

I matted the girl with silver paper and used red and silver ribbon to frame her in.  I cut my card from white paper with irridescent flowers on it.  This paper is white on the back, which is the inside of the card.  I stamped Happy Birthday in red inside the card.

Be sure to create your own project with ribbon or twine and post it to Frosted Designs ~ you could win a prize!!
