I got new Spellbinders Nestabilities dies for Christmas and made this set of cards to give at the Fenstermacher Polly-anna.

I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Fourteen die. The sentiments are all stamped with Close To My Heart stamp set "D1265 Gracious Greetings" and then heat embossed. This is my most used stamp set, I just love it! The ones with "hello" in the center are the same die and same stamp set as the others but also have a border stamped with a rubber stamp from Gina K Designs specifically made for the die.  See how the "hello" fits perfectly? Love it! Paper is all Basic Grey and Pink Paislee. Butterfly punch is Martha Stewart
