I'm just going to make the deadline for this challenge by the skin of my teeth *grin* This week's challenge over at the Cuttlebug Challenge website was to emboss a die cut. I was stumped as I don't think of myself as someone who uses die cuts. Sure, I have a Cuttlebug but it's My Squishy, a fantastic dry embossing tool. I only have two dies. What's a girl to do? Then it occurred to me that my lovely new Cricut is an electronic die cut machine. Duh! So I was off and running making both the die cut tags and the flowers.
I needed to keep things very simple today as my health isn't playing fair so I decided to make two tags inspired by the incredible work done by Godelieve
Here's some close-ups in case the embossing doesn't show up well on your monitor:
Everything for these cards came from my scrap bag. I seem to have become one of those people who doesn't throw out any paper bigger than my smallest punch. It gives me such a thrill though to take odds and ends and turn them into something as useful as gift tags - and I love the challenge.
I won one of the prizes at Cuttlebug Camp and it arrived in the mail today. Look at all my goodies:
Thanks so much ladies for the prize. I love it!
