Start with a piece of cardstock 4 1/4 x 11. Fold in half; fold will be at the top. Using a coluzzle circle template or a 1 3/8" circle punch, punch a half circle in the fold. Use a scallop punch to create the neckline.
Next, put the card in your trimmer with the fold to the right and lined up to the 1 3/4" mark and cut in 1/2" on each side to create the sleeves.
Using a ruler or your paper trimmer, cut the angle from the bottom corner to the 1/2" cut to create the sides of the shirt (or dress, if you prefer).
Decorate as you like!
Colors: White Daisy, Cranberry
Stamps: Delight In Everything

The backround stripe on these cards was done by applying rubber cement to glossy cardstock in stripes, letting it dry and then using a brayer to cover the cardstock with the lightest color of dye ink.
Repeat the process by adding rubber cement lines in the brayered areas and proceeding with the process.

I've been in birthday card mode lately!
I made the background by brayering Taffy ink on white cs, then I used the sea sponge tool from the distressing kit to pounce some Orange ink here and there. Finally, I brayered the edges (about two inches all around) with Autumn Terracotta. I then used the Star Struck stamp set to random stamp in Cocoa and Autumn Terracotta. I used scraps from the background to create the cake. Stamped inside the scallop circle with Genuine Fun stamp set. The lines around the edge of the cake piece are from the Adventure stamp set.
Colors: Taffy, Orange, Autumn Terracotta, Cocoa
Cardstock: Autumn Terracotta, Cocoa, Colonial White
Stamps: Star Struck, Adventure, Genuine Fun
Accessories: Cocoa Grograin Ribbon, Colonial White Brads
