Love You to Pieces - CAS

A gender-neutral card for someone special inspired by three challenges...

On a white card base, stitch lines were die cut on four edges. A panel of cardstock was cut with stitched spirals using a die and a portion was cut away at a slant. Using printed paper, a panel was cut to fit at the base to create a complete panel for the card front. Using dies, three openings for puzzle pieces were cut from this panel and it was adhered onto a white card base. Three puzzle pieces were die cut and backed with foam and aligned over the open spaces. Three more puzzle pieces were cut and used to decorate the inside of the card. The sentiment was
stamped directly onto the stitched panel.
