Masculine Birthday Card with Cheery Lynn Designs Dies

Cheery Lynn Designs Card-Makers Stackers Nesting Dies help make perfectly spaced rectangles for cards and I know I've said it before (but it's worth repeating)... I just love the embossed edge they create on the die cut paper too! The Lattice II die coupled with the Card-Makers Stackers Nesting Dies made creating this masculine card quick, easy and fun too, despite the fact that creating masculine cards often poses a challenge for me.


Directions to Create This Card:
  1. Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card base from white cardstock.
  2. Using the Lattice II die, die cut a piece of red cardstock and adhere to card base.
  3. Using three differently sized Card-Makers Stackers Nesting Dies, cut one rectangle from three different coordinating patterned papers. (note: for this card, I adhered each of the patterned papers to a piece of white cardstock that I cut from the same size die to make them rigid for popping up on the card with Pop Dots for added dimension).
  4. Wrap coordinating ribbon around two smallest rectangles and adhere.
  5. Adhere rectangles of patterned paper using Pop Dots as shown on card.
  6. Die cut red cardstock circle from Classic Circle Little Silver Stackers Nesting Dies and adhere to ribbon.
  7. Die cut white cardstock from Classic Little Stackers Nesting Dies, stamp sentiment and adhere to red circle with Pop Dots.
Other supplies used:
Cardstock, Stamp and Ribbon: Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricut
Ink: Ranger
