Today’s cards features Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (which is currently on sale) and the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I used the same design of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper for all three cards but on this first one, I added an embossed panel of Gray Granite cardstock. 


Life Is Beautiful Stampin Up


Peony Garden Designer Series Paper


The sentiment, from the stamp set Life Is Beautiful, was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Gray Granite ink and was then cut out with the Tasteful Labels Dies.

On this next card, I replaced the embossed Gray Granite cardstock with Old Olive cardstock and the sentiment was stamped in Old Olive ink.  



And here’s another version of the card using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies which were used to cut out the sentiment and the stitched Old Olive rectangle.
