Today’s card was created using Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Painted Texture Embossing Folder, Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch and the stamp set, Cottage Rose




I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card and then added a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock. I then embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder and adhered it to the Mint Macaron cardstock. 



I used the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch to cut two pieces of Country Gingham Designer Series Paper and two pieces of Mint Macaron cardstock.  I embossed the Mini Macaron pieces using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of each rectangle and then placed them on the front of the card. 

I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink onto Basic White using the stamp set, Cottage Rose.  I cut it out using the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card. To complete my card, I added three Basic Rhinestones below the sentiment. 




Here’s another version of today’s card.  This is actually the card I made first. I decided it was a bit flat for my taste (but it’s flatter to mail) so I carefully took the pieces off and added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of each rectangle. This card is also vertical rather than horizontal.
