To create the card base, use the Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Extra Large Frame Die and the Platinum™ machine to cut two pieces in white cardstock.

Nest Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Extra Large Frame Die and the Extra Large Hemstitch Die together and secure with washi tape. Place on top of a piece of white cardstock and cut to create a detailed edge card panel.

Add the card panel to the card base with foam tape.
