InStyle Stamps Method Monday Challenge

Yesterday, InStyle Stamps DT member Maria, posted this AWESOME tutorial on how to make a Square Coat Card! I really LOVE the way this card turned out and the tutorial was super easy to follow! If you would like to play along with this challenge, all you need to do is make a Square Coat Card and post a link to your creation on the InStyle Stamps blog under the Method Monday post. We would love to have you play along and see what you come up with!

Here is my take on the Square Coat Card using Roxy from InStyle Stamps and Good Times paper from CTMH.

This is the card with the ribbon untied to show the card front.....

And finally the card opens up to write your message!

Roxy's shirt is paper pieced using the striped paper from Good Times. The pants are paper pieced using Twilight CS and distressing them with sand paper for a washed denim look. I colored her hair with a brown PrismaColor pencil and used Gamsol to blend the pencil marks. The earings are Twilight Brads.

Supplies used are:

Stamp: Roxy, InStyle Stamps
Paper: CTMH Good Times
Embellishments: Love Letters Chocolate Rub-Ons, Chocolate Mini Medley bigger brads, Twilight Brads and Twill Ribbon
Corner rounder and Nestabilities circles

I hope that I have inspired you to give this awesome tutorial a try!

Thanks for stopping by!! Please stop back again soon!
