Card Sketch Blueprint #102: Let’s Step It Up!

Card Sketch Blueprint #102- Let’s Step It Up!


Happy day! I introduced Card Sketch Blueprint #102 in Monday’s article with a simple card example you can make in about 15 minutes. Let’s ‘Step It Up!’ today with a few easy changes.

Download the Card Tutorial with both the simple and Step It Up! versions, as well as the Card Sketch Blueprint in case you missed it. 

Details, Details, Details!

Stitched Details! The STITCHED SHAPES FRAMELITS Dies are a fabulous all-purpose set that you’ll use a LOT! It includes four graduating sizes of all three shapes (circle, square and oval).  If you’re new to the Big Shot Machine and aren’t sure where to start (or you don’t have these yet), this is my #1 recommendation.

  • Step It Up!: Instead of cutting the squares on your Trimmer, the top Crumb Cake floral square is die-cut with one of these squares. The stitching detail adds so much!

Scalloped Details!  After the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, I suggest adding the Layering Framelits Dies.. These sets are a combination of scalloped edge and solid edge shapes in 16 graduating sizes. Each shape (circle, square and oval) is sold individually, so build your collection as you’re able. They’re each designed to coordinate with the Stitched Shapes Framelits to create multiple layers quickly and easily (you can see how a few of the Stitched Shape Framelits Dies interact with the set in the photo below)

  • Step It Up!: The bottom Lovely Lipstick floral square was die-cut from the set below. The scalloped edge adds a pretty touch over simply cutting on the Trimmer.


Bundle Details! That adorable sentiment is found in the WELL SAID Stamp & Die Bundle.  This combo makes you look like a pro… and works for several occasions!

  • Step It Up!: ‘Heartfelt’ is stamped in Balmy Blue ink to match the card base. ‘Wishes’ (as well as the Lovely Lipstick heart accent) are die-cut for a little dimension and textural detail. Trim the end of the Whisper White Cardstock panel with the Triple Banner Punch (my fave punch!)


  • The WELL SAID Bundle is filled with 75 mix-and-match elements that cover sentiments for virtually any occasion you need
  • If you’d like one go-to set with sentiments for ALL occasions- this is it ?


Pretty details! Last, but by no means least are the embellishments… the jewelry that compliments the outfit! The ALL MY Love Ribbon Combo adds the perfect touch to match the designer paper and cardstock. 

  • Step It Up!: A small piece of Lovely Lipstick ribbon placed under the sentiment and a Flirty Flamingo bow placed on top of the heart provide the perfect color-matched touch!

  1. Love love the added details such as that piece of Lovely Lipstick ribbon under the sentiment and scalloped edges on one of the pieces of dsp. This is what I think sets cards apart in originality ! Enjoyed these examples !

    • Hi Sonny! Isn’t that ribbon scrummy? The BE MINE Framelits Dies have been so fun to play with- and so versatile for year-round use. Glad you’re liking the cards/ As always, I appreciate your sweet comments! Have a fabulous day! 🙂
