Embossed in Turquoise

I've made these really sweet and fairly quick Christmas cards for Kathy's Waffle Sketch file - the sketch is underneath. I've got lots of off-cut card from when I cut down a sheet of A4 so I decided to follow the sketch but to use the off-cuts and my Nestie shapes. The cards, for an idea of size are 105mm square.

To make the shaped edge of the card, I drew around the largest Nestie and then continued the shape up the side as the card was a little wider than the die. And yes, it was sunny when I took the photos - for about 5 mins!!

Apologies for the following photo, Blogger will not put it the right way!

The ribbon is Stampin' Up and I've added some pearlescent snowflake confetti with foam pads for extra effect!
And if you've not already popped over to the Fetch A Sketch pre launch party - please do so! Some candy on offer to two lucky commenters plus some extra prizes along the way! The Fetch A Sketch challenges launch on Monday 27 June at 9am!
