To make this card, I cut out the dress shape twice in black card. I then cut about an inch and a half of the fish tail off of one of dresses and applied versamark ink and heat and stick powder all over the top part of the dress. I heated the powder until it began to melt (DO NOT OVER HEAT) then I applied black glitter and pressed it down into the heat and stick . You can used a xyron to apply the glue if you prefer.
I then added some crystals along the top edge of the dress.
Taking the second dress shape, I cut off the bottom 2" of the fish tail and discarded the top part of the dress.
Using some soft, limp lace fabric, (about 1 1/2" wide and 6 - 8" long ) I ran a line of small gathering stitches very close to the edge of the fabric and pulled the thread up to gather the lace until it was approximately an inch wider than the card fish tail.
I put a strip of double sided tape across the card fish tail half an inch down from the top edge to hold the gathered lace edge.
Lining up the bottom edge of the lace with the bottom edge of the card fish tail I pressed the gathered lace edge onto the the double sided tape (arranging the lace as I went along. ) leaving about half an inch of card above the lace. ( This is to join the two parts of the dress together later.)
I folded the ends of lace to the back of the fish tail and held them in place with double sided tape.
Apply a little glue across the width of the card fishtail ( the bit that's above your gathered lace) and place the glittered part of the dress on top, butting up the bottom edge of the dress to the top edge of the lace.
I ran a very thin line of crystal effects across the the lace where it meets the glitter and sprinkled with more black glitter. I then layed a kebab stick over the lace gathers and pressed it down to flatten the lace join .
My lace looked a little too matt against the all the sparkle of the glitter so I lightly brushed some crystal effects over the lace with a stiff paint brush and applied more black glitter.
The last thing was to gather a small length of ribbon to form the flower and stick a diamonte in the centre.
