Hi

Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Make a circular card with Scalloped Nesties

This week I'm making a circular card using the scalloped nesties. An interesting little card that can be used for any occasion.

You will need
Cardstock: 8 1/2" x 4 1/4"
3 Scalloped Nesties (Petite or Classic)
Ink, Ribbon and a stamp

Score and fold the cardstock in half.

Position the largest Nestie as shown below.

Sandwich: A Plate: B Plate : cardstock: Nestie cutting edge down: C Plate
Run through the Cuttlebug


Your shaped card


Emboss the front of the card (your personal choice, I used the Swiss Dots folder) and inked the edges





Now cut 2 more circles of different sizes.



Emboss the largest



Stamp the smaller with your choice of stamp



Add a ribbon to the fold




When assembled you have your finished card




A little cutie! Hope you enjoy making this.
Well Cuttlers, that all for now, see you next week
