Have you seen the Nothing’s Better Than Bundle yet? It’s the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and Love You More Than Dies, and you save 10% if you buy them together in a bundle. And of course, you want both anyway, right? I admit I’m not a coffee or cocktail drinker, but I can consume massive amounts of chocolate and cookies!

Today’s card looks like it has been embossed with an embossing folder, but it’s faux embossing. I actually die cut the pieces from the same color card stock as the base, and glued them on. Pretty cool, eh? I did stamp one of the cocktails and intended to glue it onto the front in place of one of the white ones, but it came out much bolder than the colors on the die cut sentiment, so I glued in onto the inside of the card.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″

Stamped with the Nothing Better Than stamp set:

  • sentiment in Balmy Blue ink onto the inside of the card base
  • cocktail in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • drink in Flirty Flamingo ink
  • lemon in Daffodil Delight ink
  • umbrella in Balmy Blue ink

Colored using a Water Painter filled with water:

  • a scrap of Shimmery White CS using Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue, and Daffodil Delights inks
  • allow to dry completely before die cutting

Cut using the Love You More Than Dies:

  • about a dozen cocktails from a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS
  • the stamped cocktail
  • front sentiment from the watercolored piece

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Whisper White Thick CS cocktails glued onto the front of the card base
  • die cut sentiment glued over the Whisper White Thick CS cocktails
  • stamped cocktail glued onto the inside of the card base
