The Product Focus review team at Splitcoaststampers published a review on Nestabilities Card Creator dies from Spellbinders this morning. I had a chance to play with the dies, and I loved how they are sized proportionately for A2 sized cards (5 .5″ x 4.25″). It is super easy to cut your different elements without measuring or cutter. You can read the full review here.

I used a stamp from Unity that had been in my stash for a while…dream. Big. The Victorian Background (Unity) is stamped in Vintage Cream ink on kraft, and when that was really good and dry, I stamped the butterfly image with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and embossed it with detail clear embossing powder. The rest of the card came together very quickly thanks to the sizing and perfect layers of the Card Creator dies.

This card and a few others that I’ve worked on over the last week are going in my stash for sweet college freshman in my world who’ve left the home nest the last few weeks. Even if you don’t have any special college kids in your life right this minute, say a prayer for them, will you? It’s an exciting time, but filled with a lot of emotion for both the kids and their families.

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
