For my cards, I’m using these two images. Aren’t they adorable?
This first card was die cut using a Spellbinders classic oval. I did a little Out of the Box Nestie technique on it, left it in the die and colored it with Copics. The sentiment from ODBD Daffodil Tag set, was stamped on the yellow check dp and die cut using a banner die from Spellbinders. The fence was punched from white card stock and the grass and flowers were die cut. I added a few punched clouds and butterflies to complete my 4.25 x 5.50 card.

For this card, I used the same Out of the Box Nestie technique and a Labels 18 die. Rosco is colored with Copics and while the die was still in place, I sponged a little lt green ink around the edges. The green background was also cut w/ a labels 18, attached to a larger white rectangle then embossed. I used a white gel pen to add a little faux stitching. This card is 5.50 x 4.25.
