Step 1 Select six prints from the Bella Rouge Stack™.
Step 2 Cut the first print to 5"x10". Lay this print in front of you horizontally and score down the center, folding it in half to create a 5"x5" card.
Step 3 Cut a strip from your next print measuring 1½"x5". Score this print in half and adhere it in place over the fold, half of the print showing on the front and the other half on the back.
Step 4 Cut a square from each of your next two prints measuring 4"x4" (total of two squares). Distress the edges of each square and adhere them to the front of the card as shown in the image.
Step 5 Wrap the blue trim around a small section of the “U,” tying it in a knot in the front and trimming any excess as desired. Adhere the “U” to the 6"x6" square of black cardstock. Cut around the edges to create a thin border. Adhere this grouping, using adhesive foam squares, to your next piece of printed cardstock, trimming around the edges to create a slightly larger border. Set this aside momentarily.
Step 6 Create a tag to go on the side of the “U” with your final print. Using the image as a reference, adhere this to the right of the “U” on the front of the card.
Step 7 Using the same print as the tag, cut a 5"x5" square and adhere this to the inside of the card, right side of the fold.
Step 8 Embellish the card as desired by adding alphabet sticker letters, rub-on letters, rhinestones, and your key.
