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.4

Hiya, lazy Sunday today because all I have to do is show you how to use the tag from yesterday....bit of a cheat I know, but afterall we are told 6 days shall you work and of the 7th rest....so here's my card with tag attached.

To match the tag I have embossed an 8 x 4 black linen card with the snowflake design. First I embossed 2 lines across the card and then embossed the snowflakes from the top, and then from the bottom. The sentiment is a peeloff mounted on card and adhered with pads. I realise that black is not everyone's cup of tea, so don't be put off because the design would work in other colourways.

I don't think this is really a cheat because you have two ways to use this idea. You can make a tag for that special present or a tag card, and the base card is useful with any type of topper.

See you tomorrow with No. 5. Have a restful day!
