Nestabilities Easel Card

I got my new Nestabilites this week from Oyster Stamps and very impressed I am too! I also got a copy of Craft Stamper Magazine - so, put the two together and what do you get? A gorgeous shaped easel card that's what!

I've been meaning to make a shaped easel card for sometime (I spotted a tutorial on Crafty Cardmakers a while ago, but just hadn't got round to making one) so when I read an article in the magazine which used Nesties to create the cards, I just knew that I had to make one!

I'm amazed at how quick and easy the card bases were to make. The only problem is I now NEED to buy some more Nesties - LOL!

As the shape of the cardbase is so pretty I've decided to try and keep the design quite simple, I hope it's worked!
