Free Tiered Dress Silhouette Studio Cut File

This Friday I'm sharing a free Silhouette Studio cut file that's near and dear to my heart. My daughter is making her First Holy Communion in May so I designed the file for the invitation based on her Communion Dress. I shared a picture of the invitation on Instagram and was overwhelmed by the response. (Thank you!) So...I thought I'd share it as this week's Freebie Friday design.

If you're thinking I don't know anyone making their First Communion...don't pass this one up just yet. It can be used for lots of occasions: weddings, baptisms, baby showers, a little girl's birthday party or just a card for a special little lady! 
Simply make a few minor adjustments: remove the cross and/or flowers, cut on paper that fits your special occasion, and add other embellishments like bows or ribbon.

I print and cut the base of the invitation on white cardstock.

The tiered layers were both cut on Silhouette-brand vellum and attached to the cardstock using .25" Sticky Thumb Double Sided Tape. The communion dress actually has two layers of vellum. I cut two for the other card too, but decided to only use the shorter layer.

If you want your dress to have some 'volume' fold the tab area before you attach it. This will make the vellum pop up slightly.

I added the waist band to cover up the area where the vellum was attached. On the First Communion version rhinestones were placed right in the middle of the flowers. Because the adhesive was exposed through the flower cut outs, the rhinestones stuck right in place without any heat.

For the other version I added a bow on top of the waist band (which I cut without the flowers).

I love how both of these turned out!
