Today, I’m offering a free card tutorial for Stampin’ Up’s Dressed to Impress stamp set.

Best Dressed Card Tutorial

I’m part of a monthly card sharing co-op, and this is card I created for it. I love the message, and I love the the deep rich color of Blackberry Bliss. So I combined these using a timeless layout. I’ve included free, step-by-step directions to make this card at home. This stamp set, Dressed to Impress can be found on page 56 of the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.
