Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Cuttlebug Tutorial - Christmas No.10

On my CCC No. 10 I've gone for bells! A week ago I showed you how to use the Bell Wedding Folder to make a tag and then a card. Today something different with the same folder.
To make this card I used:
4" x 6" Red Hammer Card
CB Wedding Bell Folder
Score Board
Nestie Classic scallop oval
stamped image, ribbon

You will see from this picture how to achieve a border with a small 2" square folder. I always use a MFP (see link or glossary) because this avoids any crease and folder marks on the card.
Unfortunately, not a good picture but I think you will be able to see NO crease or folder lines.

Fortunately, this is a better picture. and you can see how I completed the embossing.

You can also use the folder to emboss inside or on the back of the card.

Back to a poor picture, not sure whether it's the light or camera.

I'm not too happy with this! I like the embossing but the image is not right and it needs a bit of tweaking, but the card does illustrate how to use a small folder to emboss, so it serves its purpose.

Back tomorrow with hopefully something better photed. Have a good Saturday, I'm off to a craft demo, but I'm leaving my purse at home!
