Guest Designer Nancy Nickel

Hello, my friends!
It's Nancy from the Nickel Nook!

I'm so happy to be Guesting for Miss Kate Cuttables today!
Are you familiar with MKC?
They have so many fabulous files to play with!
You'll want to head over there...when you're finished here! :o)

With Easter coming up fast, 
I chose to work with some pretty Easter files. 
I've got three cards to share with you today!

For the first two cards, I used:

 Fancy Easter Egg Set

Here are the cards:

This file actually includes cuts for four wonderful silhouettes.
Each card includes four layers,
although I've only used three layers on my cards.
I really like pale pink on kraft!

I really like pale blue on kraft too! 
These cuts are so pretty that I didn't add a thing to them!

For my next project, I used:

The file comes with four layers.
I actually used two of the layers and turned them into a card.

Then I filled several of the holes with various rhinestones.
I also filled a number of the holes with Diamond Stickles.

Here's a closer look at the bling:

Finally, I added a big loopy bow to the top of the card.

Other Materials Used:
American Crafts - Cardstock;
Bling: Crafts - Rhinestones;
Stickles: Diamond;
Ribbon: Unknown Yellow.
