I know everyone is making dress cards, but I couldn't help myself. They are so adorable! The following two links are for two different templates (I have used both).
The link below has a video with instructions and a template to print (I did not use these)

The animal print is from a bag from something I purchased at a boutique booth at South Bend Farmer's Market.

When cutting the template piece for the skirt, use temporary adhesive so that you can leave the template in place to see the fold lines. When folding start on either side of the skirt with a valley fold, next a mountain, and repeat both one more time. Go to the other side of the skirt and repeat that process. Adhere the skirt to the card base first. For the top of the dress (bodice for the sewers) adhere the bottom section however you like. To add dimension to the bodice use foam tape in the chest area. Add tiny pearls or other bling for buttons and a belt of ribbon tied in a bow. I had soo much fun making these cards! It was hard to stop.

This is my favorite.

 Somehow, I lost a couple of bows.
