Nestabilities and MME Paper by Chris



Once again I turned to my Spellbinders Nestabilities and threw some My Mind’s Eye paper into the mix. Using the largest of the Petite Scallops dies I cut two circles from some black cardstock. I mounted a sentiment (printed on my computer) on one and set it aside for the inside of my card. For the front piece I layered 3 Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Small Circles using two sheets of MME Lost and Found 2 Sunshine Pack and another piece of black cardstock. I also fussy-cut out the text box with the flower from the Sunshine Pack. 


Before layering all the pieces, I used my embossing pen to trace along the edges of the front pieces scallops and embossed with Superfine Gold Embossing Powder. I also embossed the sentiment using Superfine Black Embossing Powder and a stamp I had in my stash. I used my ATG to layer the circles and the text box. (I did a bit of trimming of the text box on the left side so it curved along the largest circle.) I wanted a bow and only had some white ribbon. CopicY28 to the rescue, as I colored the ribbon, let it dry and then tied a tiny bow, which I attached with a micro Glue Dot. I wanted the flower from the text box to stand out a bit more, so I took out my Sakura Glaze Pens and colored over the oranges, yellows, and blacks of the flower. To put it all together, I scored across the top ¼ inch of the back piece and matched up the scallops, and used my zig pen to glue the two pieces together.
