In Style Method Monday Challenge

The Method Monday tutorial challenge over on the In Style stamps blog this week is how to make a Square Coat Card.
Maria has set this challenge and there is a great tutorial on her blog with pics that is super easy to follow.

So here is my card with it's "coat" closed. The strip in the middle is held together by a tied ribbon.
And here is my "coat" open, showing the main card inside.

I have used an In Style stamp called Jasmine and coloured her in with promarkers. She has then been layered onto two layers of cs. I'm sorry but I haven't a clue who the papers are by, they were just sitting in my stash paper box. The "BABY" has been cut out with the same papers and I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for the Cricut to cut them. The top and bottom strip has been punched with a Martha Stewart punch, as has the strip on the coat. Then I've just added the ribbon and gems.
Really easy but effective.

To play along, post a comment on the InStyle posting of this tutorial with the link to the picture of your card from your blog site, SCS photo, PCP photo, or photo album. If you're uploading your card at Paper Craft Planet, tag it with "InStyle" or "ISSMM1-26"

You don't have to use an In Style stamp, just use whatever you have already. Have fun!
