In today’s post, I’ll be sharing 3 simple cards using a variety of designer papers with the Nested Essentials Dies.
I always love finding simple cards to make using designer paper and dies or punches. For today’s cards, I’ll be using a repeating pattern of shapes in coordinating designer series papers. The die-cut pieces are cut using my favorite shape in the Nested Essentials Dies.
My original card featuring this layout was made for the August Simple Suite Stampers Tutorial Bundle which includes tutorials to make 12 unique and fun cards with the Les Shoppes designer series paper. I loved the layout so much that I just had to make some additional versions with other designer papers.
Here is the original version of my card with the Les Shoppe designer paper:
I’ve also used a sentiment from the Phrases for All Stamp Set which is one of my new favorite sets. I love the crisp, bold font of the images in this set!
My next card uses the same sentiment set with the gorgeous All About Autumn Specialty Paper.
This amazing new paper has beautiful realistic images on one side and on the second side there are rich colors, simple patterns, and subtle copper elements. I LOVE this paper! To see the backsides of these papers and learn how to make this card, watch my video tutorial at the end of this post.
The ribbon used here is the Copper Clay Textured Ribbon.
I simply love how this card turned out!
Check out the Phrases for All Stamp Set used on these cards:
My final card features the Winter Meadow product suite and the Joy To You Stamp Set.
I couldn’t help but make a Christmas-themed card with this gorgeous designer paper!
I’ve used four products from the Winter Meadows suite to create this card. Four of the die-cut pieces are cut using the Winter Meadow designer paper and the piece behind the sentiment is cut from the Snowflake Magic Specialty paper. Can you see the silver elements in this pretty background piece?
The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder for a crisp wintery feel.
Here’s a peek at the Joy To You Stamp Set used for the sentiment on this card:
Check out the Nested Essentials Dies used to make today’s three cards!
I hope you’ve enjoyed these cards and agree they are 3 simple cards to make!
Maybe you’ll feel inclined to make more than 3! 🙂
