Despite years (slight exageration) of intensive research into the delights of the humble Cuttlebug, questions on forums & sales pitches on TV, at no stage did anyone ever mention the ugly lines left by the embossing folders. What I hadn't realised was that everyone was working with A6 cards which fitted perfectly inside the folders, no one ever demonstrated on anything bigger.
It was the embossing I was seduced by...and the embossing I was disappointed with and so my wee stack of folders have collected a carpet of dust & remained untouched.
But no more...Hoorah! Hose down those folders and rejoice!!
I'm still experimenting but have found another way to use them.
The folder I've used above is Bird Call, the one below is Leafy Branch.
Nothing complicated, just cut a section of the embossed card (minus the ugly bit) and used some old Whispers inks & a cotton-wool pad to create a distressed inked effect & finished with glitter glue highlights.
If anyone has any inspirational uses for the cuttlebug folders I'd love to hear from you.
PS...it's the weekend...Yay! Have a groovy one....xxx
