Today’s card was made using the Sweet Citrus stamp set and the Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder which includes an embossing folder and dies. 





I started with a piece of Parakeet Party cardstock for the base of my card. Then I cut a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock, placed it inside the Sweet Citrus Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). I adhered it to the front of the card.



Next, I cut a scalloped rectangle out of Basic White cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies. Then, I stamped the three pieces of lemon onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Daffodil Delight ink. The stamp is one big stamp and actually stamps four pieces of lemon but I chose to use three of them. There’s one stamp for the outside of the lemon which I stamped first and another stamp for the inside of the lemons. I used Daffodil Delight ink for both stamps.  I was able to line the stamps up better by stamping the outside first but for you, it might be the other way around.

Then I cut the lemon pieces out using the Sweet Citrus Dies.  I stamped the leaves onto Basic White cardstock using Parakeet Party ink and then cut them out with the leaf dies. What you can do, but I chose not to, is insert the dies in the embossing folder and your pieces will also be embossed! 



I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Citrus stamp set onto the scalloped rectangle in Parakeet Party ink. Then, I adhered the lemon pieces and leaves to the rectangle, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the rectangle and adhered it to the front of the card. I added three Daffodil Delight dots from the Glossy Dots Assortment to the front of the card. To complete my card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.
