Luke & Lexi in Love....

This amazing couple was released last night on Paper Pretties, Luke and Lexi....aren't they fab??!? I just received my heart shaped Nestibilities in the mail over the weekend and Luke & Lexi arrived the very next day, so I thought they should get acquainted. ;) I've found when I want to use the nestibilities to make a window card that it's best to cut twice. First run the top two layers (1 piece of cardstock, 1 piece of patterned paper) through the CB and then center the now cut layer onto the card base, place the Nesty in the middle and run it through again to get the final cut-out on the actual card base. The acetate goes in between the card base and the front layer so you don't see it when the card is opened.



I also found that coloring with Copics is a bit different on the Ultrasmooth Vanilla paper. I assumed it would be the same as the white but I'm afraid it just wasn't, the larger sections came out blotchy and I couldn't get them smooth at all. No clue as to why, but just wanted to share my findings with all of you. :) I love my Copics and I use them on just about everything, this was my first time coloring on Vanilla so if you run into the same issue, don't sweat it. And you can bet your tail that at CHA, I'm taking some vanilla paper to the Copic booth and finding out why this happens and how to fix it....then I'll let ya know what I find out. :)

This card is so cute - love how you cut out the heart & put them on the inside of your card. And very cool about your copic investigation at CHA - I'll be keeping an eye out for what you find... :-)
