Day 2: Card-A-Day Challenge | Emboss It

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Monday, September 2, 2013

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day!! I sure did. I spent the day by the pool with family then rushed to the craft room to create an Embossed card for my Card-A-Day Challenge. Check out what I created using the Swiss Dots Embossing Cuttlebug Folder with some CTMH White Daisy Cardstock, the CTMH Sarita Paper Pack and the MUST HAVE Art Philosophy Cricut Collection.

To create this card I simply used a CTMH white card base, cut a piece of CTMH White Daisy Cardstock to fit on top, then stuck that piece of cardstock into my Cricut Machine with the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and moved the blade to be in various spots to stagger the butterflies (ranging in size from 3/4" to 1 3/4"). After the butterflies were cut then I ran the top cardstock through my cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. Next I cut out some squares of the CTMH Sarita Paper Pack to fit behind each butterfly cut out. I lined them up and adhered the Sarita Paper Pack on to the card base and adhered that down with some CTMH 3D Foam Tape to create some space between the base and the top cardstock. I love the look although it's hard to capture it in the photo. Then I cut out the banner using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge in size 2" and stamped it with the Happy Birthday Sentiment from the CTMH Holiday Tags Stamp Set, added some Base & Bling Teal Jewels and tada!!! Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy! :)

Here is a pic of supplies used...
