This very involved card was one of our February camp projects. I love the details, but it did take some time! I don’t think I had used the 1/2″ Scallop Dots Ribbon since Christmas, but the Pirouette Pink called out for the Basic Black version! This card reminds me of a saloon girl’s fancy dress. Maybe I’ve been watching too many Westerns!
Stampin’ Up! doesn’t recommend cutting more than one sheet of card stock with the Framelits, so there’s a little trick in order to get the two curves matched even though you’re cutting twice: cut the card front first, then line up the mat with the bottom edge of the card back. On the mat, mark the bottom edge of the curve of the card front. Cut the mat, aligning the Framelit above the pencil marks. Because the Framelit cuts at the top, you’ll have a nice margin on the mat.
Maybe you need a visual on this — I’ll work on something for a Tuesday Tip. Meanwhile, I have lots to keep me busy for tomorrow’s Super Saturday. I hope it lives up to its name!
