 Bridal Shower Invitation

I saw this style of dress/gown on Patty Bennett's blog and then found a similar one on StampingSharon's blog.  I just love these and made a robe to put over my dress.  I am hosting a lingerie bridal shower for my oldest son's fiance.  I thought it turned out so cute.   I made another pattern from vellum of the dress and drew a line at the waist.  Then I used a ruler to draw a line from the center point of the waist to the 4th scallop from each side and cut that triangular shape cut.  To make cutting all the dresses and robes out, I just held the pattern to each scallop circle and freehand cut around the pattern.  I felt it would take too long to trace around the pattern each time.  I had to do a little trimming after adding the robe over the dress, but I think they turned out so cute. 
I made the inside on My Digital Studio. I love how easy it is to match the colors to the card stock.  Great way to customize your invitation.

Happy Stampin',
Tammy aka Tarheel Stamper

I really need to get that scallop circle. I've seen these a lot and love them. Yours turned out really nice. I love the vellum overlay you did with the cut out.
