Cuttlebugging with Carly - Tutorial

Hi, this is Carly and I have a tutorial for you!  For my card I used Autumn Marci.  I love this stamp, it's one of my new faves.  You can get her in rubber stamp HERE or as a digi HERE

For my background, I had my mom take pictures of what I did. 
Here are the supplies I used:
  • Cuttlebug embossing and diecut machine
  • Snowflake embossing folder
  • sponge
  • classic ink pad
  • cardstock
  • scratch paper

 

I put the cardstock in the folder and ran it through the cuttlebug.

Then I dabbed the sponge into a classic ink that was a darker shade of the same color and rubbed it in circular motion lightly over the top of the embossed side of cardstock.

It makes the background more dramatic and stand out more.  Then I added my image and finished my card with some buttons and ruffles.

Thanks for coming by! 

Hope you’ll join our Kids contest going on right now.
