Welcome to the Cardz 4 Galz challenge #152.Helen chose using dies &/or punches theme for the challenge starting today, July 29, 2021. I hope you will pop over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the design team created as well. We all look forward to seeing what you create in our gallery! I used both dies and punches for my card.

Here’s my card:


  • The Crumb Cake base measures 8-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
  • I used Calypso Coral as an accent color. The mat measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
  • I dry embossed the white cardstock layer before trimming it down to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches. There’s a white panel for the inside that’s the same size as the outside white panel.
  • The Crumb Cake and Early Espresso cardstock elements are all from my scraps.
  • The faux suede ribbon wraps around the Calypso Coral mat and I tied it in a square knot.

Putting It Together:

  • I used multipurpose glue to attached the embossed white panel to the Calypso Coral mat.
  • All three sentiments are from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set. I just love this set with the coordinating dies and haven’t used it nearly as often as I should. The sentiments and cookies are stamped in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • After stamping the cookies, I cropped them using the cookie die.
  • I’ve been using the foam adhesive sheets very frugally. However, I used it the way the directions describe. Therefore, I cut a piece of Early Espresso just a tad larger than the die. I placed the Early Espresso cardstock on top of one side of the adhesive sheet. Then, I cropped “cookies” with the coordinating die set.
  • The Classic Label punch retired when the 2021 – 2022 annual catalog went live. However, I thought it would be perfect over and under “cookies”.
  • Next, I trimmed the bottom sentiment to 2-7/8 inches by 1-1/8 inches.
  • Then I outlined all three sentiments using the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Right marker.
  • Finally, I randomly stamped cookies on the envelope flap and put one on the bottom left-hand corner on the front.
  • The sentiment on the inside of the card says “because adulting is hard”. I stamped three more cookies along the bottom of the inside white cardstock panel.
  • That’s it. While the card might look complicated, the coordinating stamp set and dies make it less complicated.

Thank you very much for stopping by my blog. I appreciate every visit and comment.

Have a Peachy Day!
