Playing with "Nesties"

I mentioned yesterday that I'd descovered a little trick with the nesties. Well I tried it again today and this is what I came up with. I started off with a card blank measuring 15cm x 15cm and with a bit of clever manoeuvring on my cuttlebug,this is what I came up with.

If you're brave enough to take a chance with your dies it makes a really quick and easy card.

I used a large sizzix die for the leaves,I think it's made a great card. The next photo shows that I really did only use the one piece of card to achieve the blank.
The good thing about it is that it fits into a standard large envelope.( the one that you use to fit an A4 piece of card folded in half)

I'm going to use this card for some challenges, Creative Card Crew challenge 49
The prompt for this is April showers bring May flowers.

My card is for a good friend who could really do with some cheering up at the mo.

If there's enough people that want to see how I achieved this card,I will try to do a step by step guide to this later in the week

Thanks for stopping by,
