Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy card featuring the Nothing’s Better Than Bundle! Whether it’s hand or mail delivery, nothing can make your day better than some fresh baked cookies! How fun would it be to include a cute coordinating card, like the one I am showing you to make today?
The base layer is Crumb Cake cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I used my Stamparatus with the Buffalo Check background stamp to stamp in Early Espresso ink and used a ruler with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker to make the red lines:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. Stamp six of the cookies in Early Espresso and Sahara Sand ink on Whisper White cardstock (you can substitute Very Vanilla to coordinate the sentiment piece) and cut out with the coordinating die.
2. For the “plate”, use the third smallest Layering Oval die to cut out Real Red cardstock and the third smallest scalloped Layering Oval die to cut out Early Espresso cardstock, these will be adhered together.
3. Use the largest sentiment die from the Stitched So Sweetly die to cut out Very Vanilla cardstock and stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink.
4. Place a strip of Adhesive Sheet on the back of Real Red cardstock and cut out using the Cookie die, place a piece of Adhesive Foam Sheet on the back of Early Espresso cardstock and cut out with the Cookie Die, the Real Red die cut will be adhered slightly to the right on top of the Early Espresso die cut.
I first adhered the Very Vanilla sentiment die cut to the base layer and then adhered the oval layered “plate”:
I adhered the cookies in a pyramid shape, this hides the “bite” part of the cut out, except for the one on the bottom. The cookies are adhered to the plate and I first adhered the Early Espresso cookie die cut and then adhered the Real Red cookie on top. Be patient, this make take a few minutes to get lined up and the dot for the “i” can be tricky:
This completed base layer is adhered to a Real Red cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink, the little star in Real Red ink, and the cookies in the corners in Sahara Sand and Early Espresso inks:
How cute is this card?? I tend to forget to use my Stamparatus, even it is right in front of me on my desk, but I found it so much easier to stamp the Buffalo Check stamp and get those nice and crisp stamped sentiment images! I will admit, the “cookies on a plate” idea came before the die cut sentiment piece, however, I really didn’t feel like stamping and cutting the cookies on Very Vanilla cardstock. Of course, I thought after the card was completely done that I could have used Sahara Sand or Crumb Cake cardstock for the cookies instead, but I will leave that for you to try!

Thank you so much! It was a toss-up between the Real Red Stampin’ Blends or Marker, but I liked the thin line from the marker the best!
