Materials used: A4 sheet of White Linen cardstock
Folder: D'vine Swirls
2 Heart Nestie Dies
Flowers, ribbon and beads
I first printed the words on A4 card - cut the card to 28 cms x 14 cms - scored a centre line and folded. I also scored lines just above the words.
The front of the card - the scored lines give a good edge to line the folder up to, and they just look like they should be there to finish off the pattern.
To make the card a little different, I've used the debossing method by using the folder on the reverse side. Position the folder just above the scored line. This is a brill folder because you can use it from the top, bottom or sideways, which is the way I have used it and the pattern looks right each way. The Cuttlebug logo is now underneath.
Run through the Bug - Sandwich : A/ B/ Card in folder but not wrapped round/ B
Your base card now looks like this - after I had added another line.
Next for the embellishment - Cut 2 different size hearts
Sandwich: A/ B/ card/ Die -cut side down/ C
Now to emboss these
Sandwich: A/ Die (cut edge up) with card inside/ Tan Mat and Shims (you know how many your machine will need)/ 2 B plates
Run through the Bug
Leave the card inside when you have embossed - turn over and with a scoring pen run round the edge again.
and here you will see why I do this. The embossed edge is now super defined!
To finish my card I have made initials with my Harmony Alphabet and made a flower embellishment with added beads and ribbon
The topper for my card
