I even managed to "fake" the out of the box nestie cut by marking where the frame met the legs and then cutting up to the mark and slipping them through the frame leaving the rest of the image within the frame. How great is this Digi stamp,another by Gayle Bond,there's several of these girls in her collection and they make a change from my usual style of image.
I used distress ink to stamp the filigree swirly leaves onto the card blank before using inks to distress the edges. The leaves are part of the Flowers and Fauna clear stamps also by Gayle who designs exclusively for Scrapbook Sisters. The greeting is by Studio G.and the papers are remnants of Basic Grey I believe.
and added a few if these lovely flat backed gems from my stash.
I'm going to use this card for a few challenge:-
Sentimental Sunday 26,Distressing,
2Sisters 10,Anything goes,
Basic Grey 31,Autumn,
Stamp Something,Use a digi.
Shabby Tea Room 32,Autumn.
Tuesday Throwdown 22,Anything goes.
I thought I'd show you something else that I made using the Cricut,I can't believe how easy it all is. My plea to you if you have one that's gathering dust is get it out and have a play with it. I for one am delighted to finally be able to make the right size envelope to fit a Nestie card without
any hassle at all. Don't they look fab!
Thanks for stopping by and remember,there's still plenty of time to make a pet themed card for this week's challenge at Scrapbook Sister.
Hope you've had a great weekend,
p.s. Thankyou for all the birthday wishes that I recieved over the last week,I had a lovely day on Friday and was given some amazing hand made cards which I will share with you soon.Jx
