Stitched Sky Card Instructions:
Step 1. Cut a 4 x 6″ piece of cloud pattern paper.
Step 2. Use the smallest die from Gina K. Designs • Double Stitch Design • Small Set to cut 4 continuous squares.
Step 3. Cut a 4 x 6″ card panel from Gina K. Designs Premium Cardstock in Wild Dandelion using Zots™ • 3D
Step 4. Die cut a scallop border from the bottom of another 4 x 6″ card panel in white.
Step 5. Use Zots Adhesive Dots to attach the scallop border to the bottom of the tile background.
Step 6. Run a piece of Deco Foil™ PeelnStick Toner Sheets with Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils™ • Silver Sequins through a laminator. Once foiled, cut clouds from the sheets using cloud die cuts.
Step 7. Peel off the backing from the foiled toner sheets and adhere them to the background.
Step 8. Stamp in black an air balloon 3 times on patterned and white papers.
Step 9. Fussy cut the stamped images. Cut the top of the balloon from the floral pattern, small elements from the yellow pattern and the whole image from the white paper.
Step 10. Attach all the elements to the white air balloon using Zots and Zips.
Step 11. Stamp a banner and matching sentiment on patterned paper.
Step 12. Fussy cut the sentiment banner.
Finally, all there is to do is attach the stamped images to the card panel, and mount the panel onto a white card base.
That’s it for today. I love how cute the images look on this tile cloud background. The foiled clouds add a perfect touch! Hope you enjoyed. Until next time!
