It’s very appropriate that this next card uses the sentiment “Joy,” because that is exactly what I feel now that my new Label 1 dies are here! Yes, they are here, and I love them like I knew I would! And I couldn't wait to put them to work making this little card.

This is just like the round cards I’ve made recently. I’ve received many comments and questions about these cards; I will definitely do a tutorial soon. They are easy peasy, it just takes some practice at first.

My tree was stamped with a little extra space in the center so that I could add the sentiment. You can’t tell in the photo, but I added some Stardust touches by following the swirl pattern in the tree and on the tree stand. It adds just the perfect touch!

Do you own any Nestabilities? If so, which die or set of dies do you use the most? Circles, rectangles, ovals?

Stamps: Merry & Bright Additions (PTI)
Ink: Dark Chocolate and Ripe Avocado (PTI), Antique Linen Distress Ink (Ranger)
Cardstock: Ripe Avocado and Dark Chocolate (PTI)
Patterned Paper: Kaiser Crafts
Tools: Cuttlebug (ProvoCraft), circle and Label 1 Nestabilities dies (Spellbinders)
Other: Stardust pen (Sakura)

Jennifer that is beautiful. I have the large basic shapes and must say I use the circles the most. I thinks me needs these labels now too. Have a great weekend. -Molly B

OMg!!! I love this die!! I didn't even know that these existed- so going to the website and checking it out right away!

I have the ovals, small scallops, scalloped squares and rectanges. I use the ovals the most (surprisingly) but I love them all!
Love the card- thanks for sharing!

I only have ovals and scallop ovals...I NEED the Circles, Scallop Circle and Labels :)

I love what you did the colors and layout

Great card! I am jealous you have this die already. I have had an order placed since July. I am hoping I get mine in the next round of shipments.

I just got this set of dies too. They are to die (no pun intended) for. I love this card. It is simple but the shape makes it very elegant. I think I use my square nesties the most followed by the round ones. Thanks for giving me a great idea.

well, thanks to your beautiful card, I just ordered the Label 1 nestabilities and cannot wait to receive them with hopes of creating something half as beautiful as your card!

Hi Jennifer,

I just got this die in the mail yesterday, then I had to get on a plane to Toronto today, so I haven't gotten to use it yet!! BUT now, I'm totally inspired by your card!!!

How do you make the die the card base?? Thanks for your talented ideas!!!

Be still my heart! I just got my label dies yesterday and haven't used them ---yet. You are inspiring me to rush right downstairs and do so.
