The Cuttlebug Spot is running a Winter Theme at the moment, so I thought it was a great opportunity to do some fast and simple cards using my favorite little green crafting friend (i.e. Cuttlebug ya'll)...
I love embossing but I always hate to cover up any part of the pattern in a card; so this time I let the embossing be the main part of the design. And here's a REALLY fast simple trick I've learned:
Blank 3x5 cards are the perfect size to emboss and attach directly onto a card!
That's right--it's just a 3x5. Cheap, fast, and oh-so clean-and-simply elegant. And it looks fabulously like SNOW!!
Materials used on this card:
Blank white 3x5 index card
DCWV textured cardstock Green #1
Holly stamp from Rubber stampede
Ranger Superfine Clear heat-embossing powder
BIC Mark-it markers and Crayola Colored Pencils
Sentiment stamp from PrintWorks Clearly Defined Christmas set
Cuttlebug "Floral Fantasy" and "Swiss Dots" embossing folders
Offray White grosgrain ribbon (WalMart)
