C&S





Cuttlebug embossing folder
Sentiment from TLC


This card looks clean and simple and with the correct tools it was. At first I couldn't work out how to keep the centre from being embossed knowing that I wanted the embossing to surround the sentiment. A trip to my local framers with some Spellbinder dies, and hey presto mount board cut to suit my dies. So instead of using a plate on my cutting machine I used the die cut mount board.
