Fashionista Cards

A week or so ago, I saw a great card on Pinterest that I knew I wanted to try.
Early yesterday morning, before heading into my gardens for the day I gave it a whirl. It is a Cricut free card- oh my!!!

The card showcases a print dress done by folding origami paper. I have to admit I had to watch the video a couple times to be sure I got it right.
My dress was made using a 4" square piece of text weight scrapbook paper, not card stock. Card stock would be too hard to fold and get everything straight. You can find the video directions for the dress here. When I watched this video another one popped up on the side of my screen for another dress. 
You can find the video instructions for the second dress here.

I had a small micro punch from CM I used to layer the flowers with a crystal in the middle.

I used Kraft paper as my base card and then stamped the sentiments, from My Pink Stamper Pinka-licious stamp set in black. Used a ruler and black pen for a simple border so all the focus would be on the dress. 

This was fun and I like how simple they are.

That turned out so cute. I might just have to ask my DS to help me with those. He loves origami.

Hugs,
