Another Sugar Nellie............

I just couldn't resist using this gorgeous Sugar Nellie digistamp "Joy" again.  This time I have printed out a larger image and coloured in ProMarkers.  Then placing a circle nestie over the image I could see that part of her shoes would be cut off so I lightly drew in pencil around the bottom (inside and outside) of the nestie.  I then used scissors to cut around the feet.  I fitted the nestie back over the image but made sure that the cut out section was OVER the nestie - then put it through the die cutting machine as normal.  This was matted onto some matching cardstock using a blossoms nestie.  Using this method it looks like she is just about to jump out of the card.  The background paper is from my stash and I used a Martha Stewart deep edge punch for the border.  I added some ribbon, flowers and gems and the sentiment is from a Stampin Up set called "Circle of Friendship" and was cut out using SU punches.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Great minds think alike by the looks of it! I like the way you've done this card and made it look different to the previous one.
