I started with a base of Granny Apple Green cardstock and then added another layer of this pretty green paper but embossed it first with the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder using the Cut & Emboss Machine. For this particular card, I found that when using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder, you need to be very careful that you’re placing your cardstock in the embossing folder straight. I had to add a few sheets to the recycle bin because I wasn’t paying attention that the paper was straight and when I glued it to the base, the whole card looked crooked. I’ve used this embossing folder many times before and have never had this problem but it was obvious with this card.
The Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper was cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adding it to the front of my card. The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green ink using the stamp set, Butterfly Gala, and then cut out with the Tasteful Labels Dies. I added some Gilded Gems to complete the card (these are very sparkly in person).
Here’s another version of the card using the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder. You can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.
