I love this card.  It is one which appeals to my love of layers and details.  It has a retro color combination, and is oh, so cute!  I hope you enjoy my CASE of this adorable Stitched All Around card and the accompanying  step-by-step tutorial.

Your Step-by-Step Guide

1.  Score the Powder Pink cardstock at 4-1/4″ to form the card base. Crease with a bone folder.

2.  Use the Stitches framelit to create faux stitches at the top and bottom of the card front. Emboss with the “X” die in the position shown.

3. Mat the Designer Series paper onto Basic Black cardstock, leaving a 1/8th border on the right.  Adhere to the card base.  Add Black 1/2″ Satin Ribbon where the Powder Pink cardstock and Designer Paper meet.

6.  Stamp the sentiment in Black onto Shimmery White cardstock.   Re-ink and stamp onto Coastal Cabana cardstock. Cut out the Coastal Cabana “fabulous” and adhere onto the white cardstock.  Note:  To save paper, you can selectively ink just the word if you wish.
