Handmade Prom Dress Remembrance Card to hold Gift Card with Embellishments from I Am Roses and The Funkie Junkie

A  wonderful teenager  I know is planning on a black and white prom dress, plus this is the year she graduates so I had planned on making her a card to hold a gift certificate to have her nails done prior to Prom night.  A group The Craft Hole on FB also had a challenge to make a "dress card" and posted a similar pattern to the Sizzix Pro Dress Box Die that I recently purchased.   Enacting the old adage of "Killing Two Birds with One Stone"  (plus the challenge had a deadline so I had to get it completed :D ) this is what I came up with.  I cut out the box die and clipped off the dress shape from both sides, glued just the top bodice pieces together which left the dress portion as the perfect hiding fold to hide a gift card.  I added loose flat back pearls around the neckline and around the piece of lace on the bottom.  The white feathers were pulled out of an old boa and hotglued on the front (for a feathery trim waving toward the top of the dress) and also hotglued on the back of the front piece (for a feathery trim waving under the dress)  A piece of open lace (from a swap received from Alica R.) was glued on the front and back edging the feathers. The big rose and leaves are from I AM ROSES, ribbon roses from my stash and the small roses were handmade by The Funkie Junkie.   Added a scrap of rikrak and pink velvet ribbon and it's the perfect card!
