Keep it simple. A sketch makes an excellent starting place for a card. It definitely cuts time off the learning curve for busy stampers. The sketch I used for today's card is from Splitcoaststampers (SC318).
Yes, it's still available! The Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die used for the rick rack can be ordered along with other favorites from the Holiday Mini Catalog Carryover List. Click for Holiday Mini Carryover List.
Don't have the Big Shot or the Tasteful Trim Die? As an alternative, the Stampin' Up! Scallop Edge Border Punch can multi-task as your rick rack making "machine." Today's 1 Minute to "WOW!" Video Tutorial shows you how. Oops: I called the punch the Scallop Trim Border Punch in the video when it should be the Scallop Edge Border Punch. I think it's an "age thing."
