Today I have a card to share with you using the Nested Friends Bundle which includes the Nested Friends stamp set and the Nested Friends Dies. I love a cute bird stamp set and if there are dies too, I’m in! I also used the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder




I started with a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock for the base of my card. Then I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock, placed it inside the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder, ran it though my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and then adhered it to the front of my card. Next, I cut a circle out of Basic White cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies and cut  a scalloped circle out of Balmy Blue cardstock. 




I used the Nested Friends stamp set and stamped the branch onto the Basic White circle using Memento Ink. I stamped the bird onto another piece of Basic White cardstock. Then I colored the branch using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo pack and my Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend (I went over some of the areas a second time to get the color darker). The bird was colored with the Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend (body), Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend (body) and the Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend (beak). I adhered the white circle to the scalloped Balmy Blue circle, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 



Using the Nested Friends Dies, I cut the bird out, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the branch. I added three Glossy Dots around the bird and branch. I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using the Nested Friends Stamp Set and Memento Ink. I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and then cut a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock a little bit bigger than the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the Balmy Blue cardstock, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. To complete my card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card.
