Easter Embossed Card

I made this card with the Spellbinder 3D Embossibilities. Cut 5x7 piece of cardstock. Embossed
It using my Cuddlebug. Once embossed, sanded lightly, top surface of paper. As you can see, I shaded center of daisies, put a little color on the raised butterfly & shaded the banner. Used a stone brad in center of daisy. 4 brads, on in each corner. Very easy. Love the 3D embossabilities.

Grad Cards

I did this one with "Everyday Paper Dolls" Started with a pre-bought blank 5 by 7 card.
The doll I did @ 4 1/2 in. Put robe, hat , hair, shoes & body of doll. Sized them all at
the same time, so they all fit. Did this on my gypsy. Which I love, love, love !!!! Makes sizing
so much easier.
The background is cut @ 4 1/2 by 6 1/2. Congrats is done from "doodletype". The red
square is 3 1/2 in. I put pop-dots behind "grad & diploma"
Faces are done with stamps that I purchased @
I chalked, shaded & did a little outlining with markers to bring out details. cut the bow off the
diploma, tied my own little gold ribbon on.Posted by Picasa

I made this for my niece. These letters from "doodletype" cart. Cut them at 5in by 4in.
Regular letter, then cut shadow. Glued ea. letter onto 6in by 6in, piece of cardstock.
Scored 1/4 in tab on one end of each piece of cardstock, to be glued together to fold into accodian
style card. Once glued end are together. Put about a 1 1/2 line across top & bottom of card.
I cut in between each letter with an exacto knife. The decorated it.

This envelope was made with co-ordinating paper. It's made in a box style using 2 sheets
of 12 by 12. I have no dimenions. I just cut & scored to fit the card. Added ribbon to
keep the flap closed. This card turned out so cute, very much 3-d. They displayed on her bedroom wall.


I made this for my daughters birthday. It's made out of 12 by 12 cardstock. Scored cardstock
at 5in. & 7in. Turned page, scored at 3in. & 9in. Folded at 5 & 7. Cut into the 3 & 9 on
both sides, fold ends at the 2 center lines. Embossed the front with cuttlebug. Then glazed front only. Then decorated.

After I was done with the purse. I made an accordian type card, as you can see. attached
the bottom with glue dots, to the inside of the purse. Attached a ribbon, to pull the
card out. I was able to fit the ipod that I got her for her gift in it.


Love this card !!! Made the purse with "forever young " cart. Enbossed with " cuttlebug "
Inked the edges, to give it some shading. Then glossed it. Glued it onto the card. Made the
cutest miniature card & folded money up , put it in the puse. It's more like a post card,
no inside.
