Cuddlebug Challenge

The challenge this week on The Cuttlebug Spot was to emboss vellum, metal, etc. I chose to use another technique Aymee posted as a tutorial on her blog; papercasting. It was sooo much fun! After the toilet paper dried, I mounted it on a rectangular mat which is shaded with light pink ink. These pieces were then mounted on the scalloped edge card base using pop dots. Then, I cut out the baby girl outfit in white using the New Arrival Cricut cartridge. I ran the top pieces through the Cubblebug machine using the swiss dots folder. I also shaded the lacy looking parts of the bottom layer with light pink chalk. Next, I decided to use a light pink brad as the center of the flower. I also applied the pink ribbon on the bottom of the card using Aymee's folded ribbon technique. The "It's a Girl" phrase used on the inside of the card and the matching envelope were cut using the New Arrival cart as well.

This card has a very soft look which is just perfect for the recipient; my best friend's daughter.

Thanks for taking the time to view my creations.
