Default Nestabilities Layering

I have several of the large nestabilities and I notice how many are doing some beautiful layering with them...like this gorgeous card: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...500&ppuser=458

i like how the nesting sizes are slightly larger each size up...is this done with both the large and small sets of nestabilities?

i sure hope this makes sense! here is one of my cards http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=68809 that i would like for the silver paper to be closer to the size of the shimmer paper.

thanks for you help...if you understand what i am asking!!!

I used the Large and Small circles for this card - they are about 1/4" different in size and this allows for about an 1/8th inch all the way around.

You can certainly get by with just one size, but then it is about 1/4 inch mat around your smaller size. Getting both sizes allows for a smaller mat, although the size range is about the same. I personally got the large and small, but have only ever used one size. I guess I should sell the other sizes.

I agree with others. I first just bought one size but I thought the layers were too far apart. So then I bought the other size to go with the first one and am now happy with my layers.

Personally I don't see such a difference in the 2 examples shown in Post #1. I think they both look very nice.

Yes, I agree that having both sizes (large and small) can make that 1/8th inch difference, but is 1/8 inch worth the extra expense of an additional set?? To me it's not enough difference to worry about it or the additional expense.

An alternative would be to cut a plain circle to the exact size you want to leave that 1/8 inch border if necessary. A compas or circle cutter/template would be lots cheaper and still give a nice circle.
