2009-05-11 Cuttlebug Vellum Butterfly


A Clean and Simple card. I had to find something to put the vellum butterfly on and this appeared to be it.

I used two boarder embossing folders. First I put the scallop on the bottom and then added the swiss dots above that. I used the scor-pal to add some embossed lines between the embossed images. I used a corner rounder on the bottom two corners so it would match the rounded scallop boarder.

The words are by The Angel Company (TAC).

The butterfly is also cuttlebugged. It is a brownish vellum. Instead of trying to glue pearl seed beads onto the vellum I opted to just stitch them on. Then I added a tiny piece of 3-d mounting tape to the back to hold it onto my card.

I had a question emailed to me asking me how I got the “strips” of embossing accomplished on my card. A picture is so much easier so follow along and see the step by step below….

First of all, the strips are easily accomplished if you have Cuttlebug’s Boarder Em bossing Folders. Here is a sample of one of those sets:

I selected two of the boarder embossing folders and laid them carefully on my card. What you see here is the Cuttlebug machine and my card all ready to be put through it. I just need to add the plastic cutting plate at this point and roll it through.

And this last picture shows how I added the horizontal embossed lines with my scor-pal. I opened the card and laid it on the scor-pal. I lined up the score marks wherever I wanted it, and then just scored. To finish the card so that it matches the 1st photo; I just rounded the two bottom corners of the card and added a vellum butterfly.
