Girlie Lili of the Valley 'Cute Squares' this time

Yippee, my pretty scalloped Nesties arrived and I tried out one set to make these cards:

I used backing papers from Papermania Capsule Collections (Blueberry Pie and Boysenberry) and by mixing them I could get two cards from two pieces of paper. The cards are from Craftwork Cards and the plain pastel card came from Hobbycraft - I think. I rounded corners, did the layering and then added some little flowers punched out from the leftover scraps of the patterned papers (waste not, want not!) using an X-Cut Dimensional flower punch which punches and embosses. The flowers have little Papermania rounded 'sparkles' in their centres and the sentiments are, once again, from Craftwork Cards.
I loved making these cards - a few more for my stock box!

LOVELY!!! Those Nesties add so much to a card and you sure used them perfectly. Going to get some as soon as the budget allows.

Hi Di
Love these images - are they stamps? You've got me going on stamps now so I'm keen to find out and if they are, add them to my 'wish list'!!! Thanks, Karen x

Hi Karen! Just sent you an email. These are the ready coloured LOTV squares - but they are also in stamp form. I just thought I'd cut some corners to build up some cards for your sure is way better than my colouring, and faster :) Di xv
