Live for Today with Cheery Lynn Designs

I paired Cheery Lynn Designs Rectangle Card-Makers Stackers Nesting Dies cut from smokey black and cream cardstock with daisies cut from patterned paper using the Darling Daisies die to create this elegant and inspirational card with matching envelope. 

The perfectly sized and beautifully embossed edge that is achieved by using Cheery Lynn Designs Card-Makers Stackers Nesting Dies is featured on the Vintage Cream cardstock that the sentiment is stamped on, as well as the Smokey Shadow cardstock that backs the sentiment. These dies help make professional looking cards so quick and easy that they are a must-have item for all card makers no matter what your skill level may be.

To highlight both the sentiment and the envelope, I cut daisies from the Cheery Lynn Designs Darling Daisies die and adhered black rhinestones to each for added glamour. Gently folding each petal of the daises together adds extra dimension to the flowers on this project. 

More examples of how I used the perfectly sized Card-Makers Stackers Nesting Dies to create pretty and professional-looking projects are here, here and here.

This is so elegant and beautiful, Beth! I love the classic black and white color combo, and that paper is so pretty. Wonderful use of the dies, too. But my absolute favorite part has to be that sentiment. Just LOVE that.
