Happy Birthday Flora & Flutter

My inspiration came from Pinterest

Why on earth does my brain take the longest path to create a card.  I created a card last night and it took over one hour and plenty of trashed cardstock.  This morning I knew there had to be an easier way. Ummmm…..Rectangle Stitched Dies!!

      • Use rectangle die #4

    • Card layer (inside) measures 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Gingham Gala
    • Card layer measures 4" x 5 1/4"

* I placed Dimensionals under the four corners of the gingham paper.  The reason I did this was to have more control over the placing of the frame onto the card base.  I then added Dimensionals along the frame by using a piecing tool.
