I enjoyed making this card. I started out by cutting some French Vanilla, Kraft, Sweet Leaf, and Peach down to a A2 size card bases with a top fold. As CTMH only does 12x12 cardstock. That left me with 8 card bases all together, plus some scraps. Then I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of the French Vanilla. After that I cut the cardstock down to a good size to frame the sentiment. And for this card. Once I was happy with the size of the cardstock that the sentiment was on I then glued that down to a scrap of Peach. And followed up by cutting down that piece of Peach cardstock. Before placing the sentiment on the card. I took 2 French Vanilla card bases and cut one of them down to a 4.25x5.5 size piece of cardstock. And folded the other card base at the top. Then I brought out the hemp rope and cut a long enough piece so that I could wrap it around the card front 3 times. I secured the rope with washi tape. And then I put foam tape around the bottom of the card front, everywhere except for where the hemp rope was. That way my card wasn't left with a bulge or bump in the front. I then brought out my die cut to create an extra embellishment piece.
