This week at FCCB, the theme is "Emboss It!". When I first got my Cuttlebug, I left it in the box for about 6 months before I decided to use it. Once I opened it, there was no turning back. I LOVE to emboss various elements of my paper crafts.
For this project, I used Paisley at 4 inches to cut the little outfit. I embossed the white mat with a Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder. The dress was embossed with my Seeing Spots folder and the belt and straps with a butterfly folder from a die/emboss combo. I punched some corners with an EK Success punch, added a flower and some gems and the card was finished.
I also used Paisley to make the gift card holder. I did some manipulating in order to create the front panel, which I also embossed with Seeing Spots. As the folder was not quite large enough for the pink panel, I used an SU border punch to create a strip in the middle. The panel is adhered along the sides and bottom only, creating a pocket for a gift card. I used a variety of punches to create little embellishments for the bag and also added some gems.
Head on over to Fantabulous Cricut. You can use any type of embossing you like to enter this week's challenge. Just remember that you must have a Cricut cut somewhere on your creation.
I'm also entering this at Two Scraptastic Gals where the challenge is to use Paisley.
