Embossing with the Cuttlebug

Hi Crafters,

I have been playing with the Cuttlebug folders. This is only my second time playing with them so I thought I would keep it simple.

A little up date 10 January 2010.
I have entered this card into a YNS challenge Challenge #7 - Embossing

It wasn't made for the any challenge other than making the card, it's just that it fits the bill so I thought I would give it a go. 

I have used a double embossed techneque on this card, which I found out how to do on YouTube.
You can find the vidio HERE

After watching the vid' I had to give it a go, and this it what I came up with.

The butterfly I have  stamped  twice, punched one out in the oval then cut the other out, added some gems for the body then stuck it down with a thin line of glue on the stamped image. When dry I carefully folded out the wings to give a more 3D look.

I have yet to add my greeting but as yet I don't know what I want on it.

Hope you like it.

Happy crafting

Regards Sue X X X

Hi Sue! Such a beautiful card. Thank you for popping over to YNS Challenges. I'm really sorry but I'm afraid that your card isn't eligible to be entered into our prize draw, as it was posted on your blog before the challenge started. We don't allow any backlinks to make the competition fair to everyone. Thanks! Hugs, Sem x (YNS DT)
