Nellies dies and SU stamps

Afraid I've not done much crafting in the last week as I've been laid low with a chest infection. The other day our great postie Dave delivered my long awaited Nellies dies so I was itching to have a play with them.

I also haven't had a chance to try out any of my new Stampin Up sets that I received at Christmas so this was an ideal time to try them both together.

I covered an A5 card with a piece of Graphicus paper, cut a strip of SU green card and used my SU wheel to create a flourish border which I then clear embossed. This was matted onto a piece of white card which had been punched with a Martha Steward lattice window border punch. I then tied a piece of cream ribbon around the centre of this and placed it in the centre of the card. I cut out two Nellies frames and used the flourish from the SU Baroque Motifs set as a background using Mellow Moss ink. I then stamped the bird from the Touch of Nature set in Old Olive once onto each of the frames and then twice onto white card for each frame. These were coloured with copics, the first layer I decoupaged the whole image and the second layer only the bird. I then stamped the phrase from the Touch of Nature set and matted onto green card. The finishing touch was three pearls at the top right corner.

Thanks for looking.
