Welcome back to the craft room and today’s Flashback Friday Cuttlebug Challenge 14. Today’s card takes us back to January 2009. Back in the day, I only owned two embossing folders, today I own MANY more than two! Let me share with you the card created with those two embossing folders. I will also share a fun technique to add a bit of pizzaz to any card or scrapbook layout!
Cuttlebug Challenge #14
This weeks challenge is to use your favorite embossing folder and make a card. I only own two embossing folders and both of them are favorites. So of course I made this Valentines Day card.
Here’s the outside of the card…
Here is the inside of the card. The heat embossed heart was originally going on the outside of the card. I just wasn’t that happy with the way it looked so I added it the inside instead.
The little silver dots are created with a technique found in a magazine. Unfortunately, I don’t know who to credit as this idea page was torn from the original magazine a few years ago. The cardstock is lined up under a sheet of plastic canvas and the dots are added with a gel pen.
This canvas is the super small size holes; size 10 I believe, and it makes these little dots with the gel pen. With the larger canvas you can get an actual square. I made a sample with the two different size canvases I have to show you the difference. The small is 10, and the large is size 7.
Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of the week!
Thank you for joining me for today’s Flashback Friday Cuttlebug Challenge 14 post. I absolutely love this bright pink card! The added detail created with plastic canvas and a gel pen send this over the top. I’m curious, have you ever seen this technique before? I’m also curious to know what your favorite embossing folder is. Let me know down in the comments below. Until then, have a fantastic weekend and I will see you back in the craft room again soon!
