Impress with Embossing

I just have to share this new found inspiration with you all. I have a cuttlebug and all those folders and I use them on my cards as layers and love them. But truly do not use them alot and to their fullest potential- do YOU? Well I was blurfing last week and found this blog where she uses the CB folders to be the center stage. Now how cool is that? So here is my first card that I made putting those CB folders to work, make em show for the money I spent on them! LOL. First I die cut the bulb and snowflakes with my sizzix and then quickly threw them into my snowflake folder and wha-la! Are they not awesome? (I know you are all like, uh, Heidi where have you been?) Then I embossed the base card with swiss dots and then the top piece with oh, fooey, I can't recall the name of it. But you get the idea! The greeting is SU Sincere Salutations.

I then took some of the jelly impressions to make a "mark" for the envelope. I had to die cut the impressions with sizzix die b/c none of my punches fit. But I am pleased with the outcomes.



Tata!
Heidi
