Just Because Card - Follow Your Dreams

This card is interesting. I was feeling tired and was trying to throw something together using my back ground paper I had just made. I used a Hero Arts background stamp and made this white and blue patterned paper with embossing powder and my heat gun. I kept this card extremely simple...this was also experimenting with my new Nestabilities. I was playing around with the ovals cutting and embossing them with my cuttlebug. I wanted something like those that I can make more designs with easily and also use for nice little mats for my sentiments. The Nestabilities sets are awesome and the nice part is that the shapes are all pretty much sized well for card making. I don't know how I never knew about these wonderful tools before, but now I can tell where all my 50 percent off coupons are going to go till I get the ones I want. Lucky for me most the time the husband goes with me so I can get two at a time :). I would never pay full price for them.

Gorgeous card! Love the blue and white color combo. And the white stamped paper doesn't look like it's stamped. It looks like patterned paper. Great job!

Also, can you use nestabilities in the cuttlebug? Nestabilities have so many great shapes but I'm not sure if it's worth the investment for me. Thanks for sharing.

Denise...yes they can be used in the cuttlebug. That is how I am using mine.

The packaging even comes with the directions.
