Stampin’ Up! Nested Essentials Dies

Today’s card was created using the Nested Essentials Dies, the stamp set, So Sincere, Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper and one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders




I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock for the base of my card. Then I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. I then cut three banners using the Nested Essentials Dies out of Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper using two different designs and three smaller ones, again using two different designs. I adhered the smaller ones to the larger ones and then adhered them to the embossed cardstock. I wrapped a piece of white Baker’s Twine around the card and tied a bow. Then, I adhered the piece to the card base. 




I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using Memento ink and the stamp set, So Sincere. I cut it out using the Nested Essentials Dies, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 




To complete my card, I added three Classic Matte Dots in black to the front of the card and added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.
