Spellbinder's Nestabilities - Fleur De Lis Rectangles

I recently got a set of Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Rectangles Nestabilities.  I LOVE them!!!!!  The lacy edges add such a nice look to cards!  These cards were made pretty quickly using Dollar Store dimensional stickers as the focal.  What really makes them pop, are the mats made with these special dies.

The sentiment on this one was cut from adhesive-backed vinyl using my Silhouette.  While you usually think of stacking nestabilities all in the same direction, I didn't do that here - and I rather like the way it turned out.

This card is pretty simple, but I LOVE it.  The mat is cut from a vinyl-like embossed hand-made paper that I got a long time ago from Costco.  I really like the subtle way it reflects the theme of the flowers in the corners. The sentiment was cut from adhesive-backed cardstock with my Silhouette.

When using nestabilities, don't forget to look at the "leftovers".  This card is framed with the leftover from the previous card.  Also, the central Fleur de Lis is the leftover that was cut and embossed with a larger die before being backed with plain yellow.  The stamps are from Hot Off the Press, as is the delicate floral background paper.
