Welcome! I’m here today with the fourth & final card tutorial in a mini series featuring the “So Clutch” stamps & die set from Catherine Pooler Designs. To start at the beginning of this series, visit the first post HERE, or stick with me to see how this one came together…
Step 1: Layout Planning
I’m still cracking on with busting my stash of patterned paper scraps, so I pulled the remaining bits over to see what I could come up with.
The base of today’s card is a top folding A2 I trimmed the bottom edge off leaving a 4.25″ square.
The next layer I chose was a 3.75″ square piece of textured white cardstock.
Step 2: Piece, Stamp, & Stitch
Scraps of patterned paper were pieced together directly onto the card base leaving a 1/4″ border exposed. (The middle will be covered, so you don’t need to cover the whole thing.)
A decorative stitched border was added to the white cardstock piece and a sentiment was stamped centered on the lower third leaving space above it for the die cuts .
The stitched sentiment layer was then secured to the front center of the card base followed by the die cut purse using foam adhesive.
Step 3: Create Support
Since I wanted the glasses and lipstick placed partially over the purse, I used bits of adhesive and blank die cuts to create added layers of support before attaching them to the card front.
Step 4: Sequins & Splatters
