partial Nesties cards

When my muse deserted me last week, I looked at some stamping magazines to see if I could find some inspiration. It came from an unexpected quarter. I saw a top fold card with a half circle sticking out of the top that had originally been part of the card front. I know that's not a great description, but here are a couple of cards that I made, working along those lines. I think you'll understand what I was trying to describe after you see them.

This is my version with a Spellbinders oval Nestabilities shape cut out instead. I actually would have tried a circle, but the oval Nesties were closer. I cut it out using the partial Nesties technique that I posted quite a while back now. I then embossed the card front using a Sizzix textured impressions folder. The decorative border was made using the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch. The stamps were all Hero Arts and stamped using Memento inks. The decorative card stock is by DCWV.

For this card I decided to see what a Spellbinders Labels 1 cut out would look like. Okay, yeah, and it was closer than the circle Nesties, too. The card front embossing was made using the Textile Cuttlebug A2 embossing folder. The punched images were made using Martha Stewart punches. For the decorative border I used the Fiskars Upper Crest border punch. (Don't you love the names of their border punches?!) The stamped sentiment is by Hero Arts. The added bling are tiny hot fix crystals.
