Today’s card is one that was included in my Pansy Petals Card Sampler last month. It features Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper, Hippo & Friends Dies and the stamp set, Free as a Bird.



I started with a base of Evening Evergreen cardstock and then added a layer of Soft Sea Foam cardstock that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Our 3D embossing folders are very thick and if you’ve never used one before, you’ll need to use our Specialty Plate when running it through your machine (this plate is not included with the machine).  The “sandwich” you’ll use when running it through your machine is little bit different than the sandwich used with our standard embossing folders. You’ll start with the Base Plate, then the embossing folder with paper inside and the Specialty Plate on top (the sandwich for a standard folder is Base Plate, cutting plate, embossing folder, cutting plate). There’s nothing like a beautifully embossed piece of paper!

Next, I adhered a panel of  Evening Evergreen cardstock with a piece of Pansy Petal Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Free as a Bird. Using the Evening Evergreen stamp pad is also a good option to stamp the sentiment.  When I made the card, customers were not yet able to purchase the new stamp pad so I opted for Mossy Meadow.  I cut both the sentiment and the Soft Sea Foam layer beneath it using the Hippo & Friends Dies. I love the stitching around the edges!

To complete my card, I added three Opal Rounds to the front of the card and added a panel of Basic White cardstock to the inside.
