- Double-sided tape

- Place die-cut cupcake holder in Textured Impressions folder and run through Big Shot.
- Cut bodice from two segments of the cupcake, top skirt from three segments and bottom skirt from three segments as seen in photo. (You may have to trim a little bit from both sides of the skirt so everything lines up right.)
- Place a little double-sided tape in between bodice and top skirt. Add vintage lace to hem of skirt and a sash around the waist. Layer underskirt below top skirt and secure with more tape. Add a small paper rose to the side of the lace belt.
- The frame had been purchased recently at a discount store, but I already knew I was going to paint it. It was too dark, and the embossed areas didn't stand out enough. I took some cream paint and dry brushed all around the frame and embossed mat.
- In one of my thrift shop adventures a while ago, I had found a cool old book titled "Vogue's Book of Etiquette" from 1948, which goes into some detail on any possible event and how to dress for it. I tore out an appropriate page and placed that behind the dress.
- Then I matted the dress on a piece of mat board for contrast, added some foamboard on the back to give it dimension and adhered that to the backing.
