Another Cuttlebug Wedding Card

I have made a number of wedding and anniversary cards lately, and have received queries on how I achieved the lines below my embossing. This I do with a score board - it is one of the most useful tools I have.

This is my most recent card that shows how effective lines can be.

I first printed the words on to a 6" x 6" card and then embossed the top half of the middle section with the Cuttlebug Textile Texture folder.

Then used the score board to emboss lines to frame to pattern.

Again using the score board, I added lines to the heart shape for interest. It's difficult to emboss die cut shapes and at the same time retain the embossed edge which I like, so this was an experiment which turned out well.
My finished card with a few bits and pieces added - actually the bouquet took longer to make than the card, but, I did enjoy doing it! AND, isn't that what crafting is all about!!

If you would like to see more of my Cuttlebug and Die Cutting work, you are more than welcome to drop by my blog. Thanks for looking.

Spooky Mummy Card

I'm not a big fan of Halloween cards.  But this one was too cute not to show you.  I've had some of you wonder where my quilling tutorials are.  Well, I will be on vacation from September 2nd to September 19th and then I will start the quilling tutorials and videos then.  In the mean time don't forget to check my other tutorials on the top links.
I have to tell you this as we don't know what we are gonna do.  We are taking a 2 week road trip through California and Nevada.  We are scheduled to stay in Yosemite for 2 days.  They have huge fires going on there and our Hotel where we are scheduled to stay just got evacuated.  This trip ought to be a real adventure now!  Good luck and prayers to the people in California.  So sorry to go on and on, here's your tutorial, enjoy!
In the mean time don't forget to check my other tutorials on my Blog.  Thanks for watching!  Monica
