I'm finding my Grand Nestie Squares really useful for matting and layering - they are saving me messing about trying to get things square! I know some folks are good at this, but me....not so!
I always feel chuffed when I manage to use something in the drawer - it makes buying the item seem worthwhile. This is what I got out to cut the sentiment - it's called Birthday Wishes by Provocraft and includes a candle embossing folder and the word die. To achieve the two tone effect I cut two different colours, then because I'd placed DST on the back of my card before cutting, mixing the colours was easy.
