Heart punch dress

Pin It
Hi and thank you for the overwhelming comments on my last post its so nice to know you enjoy these projects and for your concern with the recent flooding in Australia. My nephew in Brisbane has been evacuated from his house, i'ts under and Ive been in contact with my brother who lives in Toowoomba and they are all safe thank the Lord! there house is higher up out of the central business district where it was hit bad but they have his mother in law living with them who did get flooded out badly, they all still need our prayers. The heavy rain is coming down south, Grafton which is 3 hours from us is having major flooding and has the main highway cut off and our water ways are very full now too so if it keeps raining we too will have flooding in our valley. I also did my first day of motel cleaning which was hard work but im just so happy to have work and be able to help my family financially :)

On an lighter note this is the dress version of my heart punch lady, it would be a great wedding card of course lol or even a graduation or special anniversary / evening celebration card. The rolled rose was done with the 1-3/4" circle punch cut in a spiral and rolled around similar to my rolled scallop rose tutorial.

The dress was made using the largest scallop circle from the large scallops nestabiblity dies set, with a piece cut from either side pic below....

I embossed the skirt with the sun rays folder from craft concepts which i bought off eBay... not sure who else sells them But you could use another pattern or just leave it plain. And this is the card i made for someone special getting married soon hence the colour scheme.

For all the details on the bodice part of the dress plus shading ideas please refer back to my valentine heart punch couple post
now sit back and enjoy my video :))
Blessings to you

and a last thought

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,

the evidence of things not seen”
(Hebrews 11:1, KJV)


These gorgeous dresses were made by Yvonne :)

You are an amazingly talented crafter! Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas.

Your family in Toowoomba and Brisbane, along with the thousands of others affected by the floods, are in my prayers. I watched your Valentine video yesterday and heard the rain pounding on your house. I pray also that the rising waters will not flood your own valley. ~

Lovely card, Valita.
I learn so much from your videos and you're an inspiration...just need more free time to try all that I'd like to try.

Glad to hear your nephew and brother are safe. Hope the rains finally end and that your area is spared.
