Anything Goes – Embossing

Tuesday, 13 August 2013

I made this card for a civil wedding and I must admit I was a bit stumped at first on what to make. I found this silhouette online and thought it was perfect for the occasion. So I popped it into Word, made a 2nd copy which I then reversed, printed and cut them out. I tied a knot in a couple of small pieces of ribbon which made great cravats. I really had fun making this card, I thought it looked really elegant. At Cuttlebug Mania we’d love to see your embossing projects and you can see what the DT has created.

Civil Partnership

Materials used – White square card blank, White, blue and black cardstock, Cuttlebug plus Craft Concepts In Stitches embossing folder, Silhouette found on the internet (I can’t remember where!!), Rub-On, Heart punch and Ribbon.

Cuttlebug Mania – Anything Goes Girlie

Tuesday, 6 August 2013

We are having an Anything Goes month at Cuttlebug Mania and for our first week it’s anything girlie. It could be flowers, clothes, jewellery, handbags, shoes or anything else you can think of. I enlarged a letter (can’t remember which one) from the Sewing Patterns font then printed it to make a template. I traced round this on black cardstock to make the silhouette, then did the same on patterned paper and just cut out the dress part, which I then decorated with gems and ribbon. Pop on over to see the DT’s girlie creations and check out our prize for this week.


Materials used – White square scallop card blank, Black and white cardstock, Scrap patterned paper, Cuttlebug plus Sizzix Lovely Flourish Texture Plate and a Sizzix label die, American Art stamp – Celebrate Life, Sewing Patterns font, Gems and Ribbon.
