Cuttlebug Challenge Blog

These are two cards I made for the new Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. Their first challenge is to use 3 embossing folders on your project. I started by doing the Christmas Card but it just wasn't cute so I decided I would make the dinosaur card as well just to get my cute fix in! :-) For this card I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the blue card stock. Then I used the zigzag stitching embossing folder on the matted and layered card stock and for the third embossing folder I used The circle one from the Happy Birthday set. I used blue chalk to make it stand out a bit. The stamp is by Whipper Snapper.

For the Christmas card I actually used four embossing folders but who's counting??? I used a border from the Just My Type set on the edges of the green card stock. The white card is embossed with the Snowflake folder. The green scalloped circle is embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and the snowflake is cut and embossed with the Ice Crystal set.

Gosh a Cuttlebug challenge! It wouldn't take me long to use all my folders (which are 5 Christmas, two baby and one birthday and one floral) and I only have 4 dies.

Nice cards Fiona.

These are GREAT! You are loving your Cuttlebug, aren't you? I love both of these!

Aw, Fiona, I'm so sorry you had a bad grooming experience with sweet Max! Remember, just take a deep breath, and the hair will grow back! I know that doesn't help right now, but he'll be looking like himself before you know it! HUGS to you!!
