May the Lord Bless You...

One of my very favorite tools are the Nestabilities. I love the finished look I get with the embossed edge. Plain cardstock with a matte just looks so blaaaah now. lol

I recently purchased the ovals and am so in love with them! They create such an elegant image on my cards. This simple *thinking of you* card was created totally by fluke. I was cutting some ovals for another project and realized that the scraps looked like a fame. So, using a larger die, I cut a piece of cardstock the size I needed for my card, used some Eclipse tape (awesome awesome stuff!) to hold the die in place and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I then cut a smaller oval, and leaving the die in place, used my Copic Airbrush System to spray E31 Brick Beige lightly around the outside. Keeping the die in place allows me to add a light spray of color to the outside of the oval, but not on the embossed edge!

The center oval is then popped up with foam tape. The Copic Airbrush System and the Eclipse tape are available at Eclectic Paperie and Ellen's store. I bought my Nestabilities from the fabulous Ms. Ellen!

So, the lesson learned here is... pay attention to your scraps! LOL

Hope you have a day filled with sunshine!
