To make this card for a girl:

Create a DL size card (210mm X 9.9mm) from white card-stock. You can either fold this by hand, or as I have done so here, use a bone tool and card folder.

dress embellishmentNext, cut the shape of a dress from black card then cover it with a light material so you can see the black card through it.

sequin flowerThen place a flower shaped sequin on the dress and place two strips of thin black ribbon behind it. You can use strong double sided tape to secure the ribbon and sequin in place or if you are feeling very crafty, you could also sew it in place. If you do not have any sequins in your craft supplies a black button will look just as good.

ribbonNext, place a strip of white organza ribbon down the folded edge of the card and tie a knot near the top.
