Creating Shaped Cards with Spellbinders Nestabilities!

Hi ya everyone! I am sharing at The Bug Bytes today!  I have an easy tutorial on how to create shaped cards like the one above using a die-cut such as the Spellbinder Nestabilities.  I created a video below.  I also made an adorable circle card using the same technique, a Tiddly Inks digital stamp, and Card Patterns sketch
For those that don't like videos.  Simply take a folder piece of paper and attach the die above the fold and tape before cutting in you machine.  Here is the other card I created using this technique.
I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial.  It's really a simple and easy way to create cards without having an expensive die-cut machine.  If you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask in the comments section!  For more fun projects please visit Pam at The Bug Bytes.
I'm entering the card in the Card Patterns Challenge this week!
