Join Kim Kesti in the Creative Classroom, as she creates a darling dimensional dress perfect for any special occasion.
Today’s cards feature the sweet new collection called Truly Yours. Kim shows off a few of the new dies in the video below, like the Paper Couture Dress, Cameo, Elliptical Ovals, Bouquet of Flowers, and Heart Swans. The Truly Yours Collection is full of classic and timeless designs but with the inclusion of the Glimmer Hot Foil Plates it offers a contemporary flair.
Kim’s card focuses on the Paper Couture Dress die set. This die set fashions up a beautiful dimensional dress for all types of celebration cards. Customize your party dresses with patterned paper or cardstock, and add a delicate die cut bow at the waist. There’s even an adorable hanger to “hang” your dress from.
In today’s video, Kim shares tips and techniques for folding the pleats to create the cinched waist. Kim points out a simple starting place – the main center pleat. Fold down the lines closest to the center pleat to pop it out. Then fold down the long straight score lines on either side of the skirt to create the side pleats. Next, pinch the angled score lines to tuck folds behind those main pleats. Watch the video to see Kim walk you through the simple folds step-by-step.
The dainty details on the Elliptical Oval die create the perfect landing spot for Kim’s darling purple patterned dress. Kim finished off the festive dress with a sweet die cut bow. A Glimmer sentiment and background, plus die cut florals finish off this sweet celebration card.
