First from my new toys

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all warm and dry. It seems that winter is back so we may as well make the most of it and stay in our craft spaces!
This is the first card using one of my new sets of Grand Nesties and what a beautiful set it is too. The largest circle is exactly 8" across.


It is also my first time making this style of card and I am fairly pleased with it.
The only new things used on this card are the large Nesties, all the rest is from stash. I dug my old Sizzix Bigz daisy die out, poor thing hasn't seen the light of day for many moons but now I have rediscovered it I will use it more!
All card except the green is pearlised. Swirl is Cheery Lynn, leaves are Memory Box and the sentiment is SU cut out with small Nesties. Flower and sentiment are raised on foam pads :o)

LOVE this card jackie! I've got a couple of the big Spellbinder's Nesties that I must get playing with, (especially after seeing how gorgeous they turn out)! Can't wait to meet up buddy, not long now I hope! xxx

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!!! Oh My goodness! The die is beautiful in itself but you totally brought it to life with your flowers and swirls. So glad you blew the dust off the Bigz daisy die. Wow...that's a big card being 8" in diameter, but that has got to be for a bestie friend or just a beautiful accent piece for your mantle. Funny you would use the word inches...is that for us US folks...haha

Hi Jackie fab stunning colours.. I too have these G.nesties & love the delicate edge to them..re printer still hammering away at keyboard trying to find what I need..I have been into PC NO help at all.. the HP hardly have any TOP loading printers so I was told..when using card most crafters myself included prefer top loaders.. the weathers is real awful here too ..
