Pink Daisies

Good morning everyone.

Here is my second card for Cuddly Buddly. I am entering it into the following challenges:-

Creative Card Crew - "All That Sparkles"

Charisma Cardz Challenge - "Decoupage"

(please click on the picture to see the sparkly bits)

I love making these "nestie" cards. I first cut my base card, I fold a piece of card over and then line up my nestie so that it does not cut part of the card spine, I am then left with a card I can open but which is missing some of the scallops, so that this doesn't show I cut a single layer of the same nestie and stick it over the card base (I hope my waffle makes sense).

Here's what I used to make this card:-

Stamps: "Daisies" and "Round Greetings" (both are Cuddly Buddly stamps)
Colouring medium: Copic Ciaos, Ranger Inksentials white pen
Tools: Spellbinders ribbon tag and round and scallop round nestabilities
Accessories: Glamour dust, ribbon, gems
Paper: K&Co – Sparkly Sweet

Thank you for visiting my blog today and for any comments you may leave, I love to read them and they brighten my day.

Have a lovely day!

Clare xx

Hi Clare - Gorgeous card, love the sparkly bits.

I've never made a shaped card using my nesties - but seeing as your "waffle" makes complete sense I'm going to give it a try !!!

Thanks for sharing.
