Begin with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Basic White card stock. 

Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper (also retiring June 30) to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic White card stock with the Beautiful Brushstroke Die.  Line up the die at the bottom of the card stock and zip it through again to crop a 6th brushstroke, making it even. 

Run it through a  Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine again, but this time tucked inside the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

LOVE THIS!  Dry embossing not only adds fabulous texture but also masks die lines that sometimes transfer to the card stock. 

Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

POP OF PERSONALITY!  Embellish with raindrops from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials. 

PERFECT POLISH!  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a 2 1/4 x 5 3/4 piece of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper to the outside flap of a Basic White Medium Envelope.
