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!

Nestabilities and Cuttlebug Folders - Christmas No.23

Hi, this card is one which I made last year for the NS Breast Care Unit.  When I showed it a few weeks ago, it caused some confusion as to how I achieved this look.    .
So, here is how I did it.....

First off I printed the sentiment, then using the Swiss Dots folder across the card embossed and added a score line.

The 2 half circles DO NOT OPEN.  They were made by cutting the largest scalloped circle, which I embossed with the Snowflake folder and slightly inked.  Then cut in half.   By punching 2 eyelets and joining together with ribbon from the scalloped edge - you get the effect that it will open.   If you used vellum or a lightweight paper you could wrap a full circle round the card.  It's one of those things on my list to try, but has yet not done.  Perhaps tomorrow! 

Hope this clears up any confusion - it makes simple little card, but it gives a very effective look.  Let me know if you try it.....Bye for now.
