Today’s card was made using Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper, the stamp set, Darling Details, and the Nested Essentials Dies



I started with a piece of Night of Navy cardstock for the base of my card. Then, I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List) using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. I also embossed the Balmy Blue cardstock using this same embossing folder.  I adhered the Basic White to the card front and then cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered the Balmy Blue embossed piece to it.  I then adhered this layer to the front of the card. 




I cut a piece of Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink using the stamp set, Darling Details. Then, I used the new Nested Essentials Dies to cut it out.  I added adhesive to only the part of the sentiment that would be placed on the Designer Series Paper square. I made quite a few of these as thank you cards and ended up adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to some of them because they didn’t feel like they were as secure as I wanted. 

To complete the card, I added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels below the sentiment.
