Yes, I am loving, loving, loving the new Cuttlebug embossing folders. This one is called Argyle. I’m trying to keep things simple, but I feel a little bit naked without layers. To emphasize the dimension on this embossing folder, I used soft chalks to add a little bit of color. The background is then popped on a piece of metallic blue paper then attached to the background. I’ve been using Fabriano Acquarello Watercolor paper because it gives such a deep impression when embossed. It has a rough texture and takes chalk very differently than the smooth white Georgia Pacific cardstock I normally use. I’ve also tried to use a little bit of depth with the border punch used at the top – it reminds me of a fancy valance.
I hope to have more this week using Cuttlebug items!
