A Fun Little Bo Bunny Card (Plus a Template)!

Today's assignment at the Bo Bunny blog was to create a project using an embossing technique.  Well, let's just say this past week has been crazy hectic and a comedy of errors!  We had a beautiful family wedding over the weekend that caused me to put off this assignment till Sunday.  Sunday comes and I find we've got huge plumbing problems.  Long story short, my heat embossing tool gets ruined with water and now my plans for my embossed project is out the window!  Okay, 'Plan B' .....I think to myself, I saw this link on Pinterest for this cute folded paper dress design.  I'll do up the dress design on a card and use my Score Pal to do some 'dry embossing' on the edges of my card. Easy peasy right? ....Off I go to Pinterest, only to find that the template connected to the pin I had saved had been removed!  **Sigh** .....Well, I'm not ready to give up, finally I decided I would draw up my own template for the dress (it took a little fussing and measuring but I got it done!  I've posted my hand drawn template here for those of you who want to give this folde dress design a try.  (Below) Just right click on the picture of the template and 'Save Picture As' to your computer.  Then print out on the back of a 6x6 piece of patterned paper (I used the 6x6 paper pad from the Bo Bunny "Little Miss" collection for my dress, the back of it is plain white paper so you can print out on the back and cut it out) 
Above is a close-up view of the embossed edges I put on my card using the Score Pal. 
This is a picture of the template I made up for the Folded Paper Dress.  (Right click on the photo and 'Save Picture As' to your computer....set your printer to print on a 6x6 paper....it's better to use one sided patterned paper like you find in the Bo Bunny 6x6 paper pads so that you can better see the design when you print it out on the back of the paper.  Cut out and fold on the markings.).  I gave two different dress-top designs.  The one with the straight bottom edge is the one I used on my card....this one is good if you are using a ribbon in the center of the dress....the other is good if you are doing a corset style top...how cute would this be with a little lace up? huh?)

TIP:  I have one more little tip for you! Okay, I'm all thumbs when it comes to tying bows, especially small ones!  But I found a fun and easy way to tie a perfect bow on Pinterest.....USING A FORK!!  Here is the link TYING A BOW WITH A FORK  .....I used a velvet type ribbon so mine is a little bulky but I think you'd get even better results using a ribbon that is a little finer and has the design on both sides as opposed to the one-sided velvet ribbon I used. 

Thanks again for stopping by and for all the lovely feedback, I just love hearing from you all! xx

Thank you so much for the template. Like you, I also found out the linked template was missing. Thanks to you, I did find a template. Just printed, cut and folded it and wow! It looks gorgeous! I cut the whole body. Now all I have to do, is turn this into a nice card. For that you also provided an absolutely fantastic example. I love the embossed edges. Ah well, I just love all of it!
