Cuttlebug Be Inspired #19--Embossed Acetate
Since I skipped out on the last Be Inspired Challenge (I just wasn't happy with how my shaped card was progressing), I wanted to make sure I participated this week by making a card with embossed acetate. In trying to clean up my disaster of a craft room, I had just thrown away all the packages my Cuttlebug folders came in. Fortunately, I was able to rescue them! [I already have a problem with throwing anything away because you never know what you might be able to reuse. After this project, my hoarding is going to get even worse!] Here is my bright and happy card:I used the swiss dots folder to emboss the yellow cardstock and the floral fantasy folder to emboss the acetate. I stitched the two pieces together with my sewing machine. I used buttons, eyelets, and brads on the centers of the flowers and wrapped it up with some bright pink ribbon. The tag is a Sizzix die, and I stamped "happy day" on the tag in green ink. The only thing I'm not 100% happy with is the tag. I wish I hadn't inked the edges, but other than that I like it!
