Using a Stampin’ Trimmer and Thick Whisper White card stock, cut and score a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.  Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 Grapefruit Grove polka dot pattern from the 2018-2020 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper  collection (available June 1) on top.

Cut Whisper White card stock to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Round corners using the Detailed Trio Punch (available June 1).  Using the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform, center and crop this layer with the third largest oval die from Stampin’ Up! Layering Ovals Framelits. 

To create the stitched oval frame, use the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to crop Whisper White card stock with the Big Shot.  Center the third largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies on the stitched oval and crop.  Adhere as shown using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Add coordinating Grapefruit Grove and Basic Black self-adhesive Faceted Dots around sentiment.  Thread Grapefruit Grove 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon through each end of the label and tie in a bow on the right around the oval layer.  I tucked a Stampin’ Dimensional below “welcome” to keep the label in place.  Both the dots and ribbon are available June 1.  Adhere to card base.
