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!

Spellbinders Nestabilitie Squares

In this week's tutorial I have used my new Square Nesties to make a triangle card. I have Jane and Andrea of Hollow Gate Farm Craft Class to thank for showing me the idea, I have just tweaked it to fit the Nesties.

A4 cardstock
2 patterned papers
The largest square in the set and the next down

Cut three of the largest squares and score corner to corner

For the patterned paper shapes. Use the smaller square just as a template, cut and tape into position on 2 of the squares

Then fasten together

Tape the back of the third square

and position as shown here on the back of the card

The front of the card will now look like this

Cut a slit on the back panel

To complete my card I decorated the inside

and then the front

My finished card . The image is a Sugar Nellie Stamp. The card folds flat and goes in a 5" square envelope.

I was really pleased with how this card turned out.
I hope I have managed not to complicate the instructions and that you will like your card too.
