I selected a number of pictures on the Cricut Expression 2, filling a whole page.
I then cut these designs on four different paper sheets.
Carefully lift the designs and residue paper away from the cutting mat.
This was what I was left with after all the designs had been cut out.
I then used another 12" x 12" monotone craft paper. I cut this in half to serve as the card.
I folded the cut paper in half so that I was left with a 6" x 6" card.
I then used double-sided tape to stick the bodice of a dress, which was cut with the Cricut machine, to the card.
I drew the outline of a skirt to the bodice, using a pencil and ruler.
I then found a stamp set with small flowers to use to stamp a pattern on the skirt.
I selected one of the flowers in the set to use. I also used Pumice Stone Distress Ink, by Tim Holtz.
I stamped random flowers onto the skirt.
I selected a second flower motif.
I filled in the spaces with this motif.
Then I selected a tiny flower motif.
I filled in smaller gaps with this stamp.
I carefully erased the pencil lines of the skirt.
I randomly applies glue dots to the open spaces on the skirt.
I stuck rhinestones on the glue dots.
Then I used some strips of paper, which I salvaged from the cut-out papers, to glue three strips to the top of the card.
I glued two more strips to the side of the card.
This card was finished in next to no time.
