I had such a fun time making this one - I'm working on improving my Clean and Simple style and am happy to have been able to practice using this sweet image!! I started by measuring and scoring two boxes or frames on the card front. Then using a ruler as a guide I masked the image area with post-it notes. This took time because if the mask is off-center it will definitely show.

Once that was done I removed the masking, cut some very thin strips of designer paper and inlaid them between the score lines, leaving a bit of white space in the corners. I've never tried this before and love how it came out. Next step was to stamp the sentiment and stamp/die-cut the border frame. Then I added the designer paper die-cut flourish, made the ribbon bow, added the pearls and mounted everything to the card.

The stamps I used are The Shepherd from ODBD's February Release, and Elegant Oval Frames with the Elegant Ovals/Spellbinders Die. Below are pictures of these stamps and dies.
