Sand edges of Bella Rose Designer Series paper, and adhere to Riding Hood Red card.
Punch holes in card approximately 1" from top of card at 1" and 3-1/8" from left edge using 1/4" Circle punch. Feed necklace chain through holes, and close clasp. Tuck chain inside pocket.
Stamp Fresh Cuts background image in Chocolate Chip ink on Naturals Ivory card stock (3-3/8" x 3-1/8"), and sponge Chocolate Chip ink around edges of card stock. Adhere to Chocolate Chip textured card stock (3-1/2" x 3-1/4"). Sew around edges.

Adhere piece to card using Stampin' Dimensionals, lining up holes in piece with holes in card. Slide necklace chain through slits so chain feeds through holes in piece as well as holes in card.
