I learned a cool trick!

Last night, I was playing around with a technique that I picked up from Sherry Cheever of Spellbinders DT & longtime member of SCS. This trick with Nestabilities is absolutely AMAZING & when she first shared it during the Spellbinders Release party last month, I was in love. It appealed to the "Vintage Girly-Girl" in me SO MUCH!

For my project, I used Labels 1 (starting with the next to largest & chose 3 down from there), a vintage seed packet front out of my vast clip art collection (printed the same 3.5"x5" size, four times), some K&Co papers (PERFECT for the vintage look I wanted), my MS lacy edge border punch, & some pop dots. Here's the finished piece:
I'm so thrilled with how it turned out! And easy...just looking at it, you think, "Oh, I could NEVER do that!" You can and Sherry was sweet enough to show you how in a video tutorial. Here's a close-up of the layers. You can see them & get the general idea, but.....
they REALLY show up this way! I will definitely be using this technique again AND I'll remember to keep the cutouts, because Sherry shows us HERE how to use the technique in reverse for another totally cool effect!
Well, I still have to put together the K.I.S.S. post for today, so I've got to get moving. Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!

Edited to add my challenge entries for this card:
Crafty Angels - what's your colour? - I love all colors, but blues (especially "antique-y" blues) & reds are my favorites
Lexi's Challenge #7 - spotted or striped - got spots in the floral paper on top & the stripes on bottom!
Pile it On #6 - let us see flowers - you got it!
Theme Thursday - flowers
Cute Card Thursday #99 - In the Name of Love - in the language of flowers, the red rose represents LOVE
Creative Craft Challenge #6 - Roses are Red - they are today! *LOL*
365 Cards - stacked up (at least 3 layers) - my second entry! There are the two background papers, the "belt," and FOUR layers of the focal point

Oh that is sooooo yummy, Sis! I love it! And I agree........it's my favorite one of all! Just beautiful!
I saw this technique done too & would love to try it. I've done some layering before (handcut everything) but this would be so much easier with Nesties.
Good job, Sis! Lovin' it!!!
