I decided now was a great time to get started on my Christmas cards! Hopefully, you will be inspired to get going with yours, too!


I used Spellbinders Classic Rectangels and Classic Scalloped Rectangles to create the printed backdrops for my image. I edged each rectangle of paper with Feur de Lis Rectangles Nestabling. Remember, the great thing about Nestabling is that you can ALTER it to fit your project with just a few snips from your scissors or craft knife!


The smaller rectangle on the Nestabling was just one pearl too large for the way I wanted to position it on my shape. I just snipped the adhesive with my craft knife and removed one pearl from the length and width!


I added the extra tiny pearls on the Nestabling to my JustRite Treasured Christmas stamped image to represent the stars on the image. I used my craft kinfe to life the pearls off the backing sheet and adhere them to my image. I also used some of the larger black pearls for the corners of my card.
