The Cuttlebug that is. I just got some new embossing folders and I find myself looking for things that need a new lease on life...bookmarks, cards, scrap paper!
Here are a couple of patterns...I like the one that looks like embossed metal. It's great for the guys versus giving the swirly look (though my husband didn't mind it for his bookmark) I didn't have the new pattern then.
I've had some general blank cards that have sat in the drawer. I liked the colors but they just seemed to lack something, so when I got my new patterns I decided to try and customize the front. I really like the look. After embossing I sanded lightly to bring the pattern to the fore. It changes it to more of an abstract design and I suspect I will be enhancing a few more card that have been lying around!

Another design challenge...
Here are the elements in the .svg file. I've preserved the color scheme here but the abc element will cut as a solid unit with the letters cutting but not the individual shapes so I provided the separate a b c to cut
...could also just cut them and overlay
onto the black shadow, too.
My file is in the Borders and Frames link.

I recently bought some beautiful cuttlebug embossing folders...
a couple of my favorites thus far are the swirls and paisley...
they add such a wonderful textural element to the papers.
Here are a few favorites.
In the top set I lightly sanded the paper to bring
out the swirl design more on the mini purse and shoe
and it looks fab on solid paper!
