only 330 days til xmas !!

Hi fellow bloggers - thanks to Monica for making me her blog of the week -I have now got a couple more followers which is great so welcome to Shirley Ann and Kiddo. I thought I would start getting ready for xmas 2012 early on - so not like me lol!! I have been playing with my nesties again and here is the result. The top pix are the inside and outside of the same card. I have used:
  • Spellbinders holly accents and the vintage ornaments dies of different sizes to cut out an aperture and then have a spinning ornament with a frame inside.  
  • Green and red holographic card to give a xmas feel
  • papermania card on the inside front to make sure the card was strengthened as the aperture is quite a size.
 Here is another one using the spellbinders holly accents. This time I have mixed and matched the individual dies both positive and negative images and then with the central accent negative used a scalloped nestie to make it stand out as I then raised the image on sticky pads. The backing paper is from papermania and I have used green holgraphic card from C&C with red pearl gems for the berries this time.
