You're so Sweet Card tutorial

Hello and good morning..

I'm sharing with you a tutorial from a card that I recently made using the April All Year Cheer Card kit up over on the Apron Strings blog...

Here is the finished card:

Let's get started:
Cut your cardstock base to create a 4x7 card ( so cut it to 8x7)
Cut your base patterned paper to 3.75x6.75

Next you'll want to cut out three papers that will turn into your "envelopes"
Cut 3-1.75x1.25 squares and then 3 strips of 1.75x.75

next take your smaller strips and then cut one side into a triangular shape, those will be the "envelope" tops:

Then adhere down the triangles onto the squares and you will have created your "envelopes"

You'll want to start laying out your card and getting things ready to glue down. Add a sheet of notebook/ ledger paper and tear at the bottom:

So it should look like this:

You will then add your sentiment and a bit of twine on it for a bit of texture:

And for a final touch, add a strip of stitching down the bottom for a bit of pop:

And you are done!!!

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day....
