Cuttlebug Christmas Cards
Completion of Cuttlebug Christmas Cards
By: Nancy Thaut, Artistic Guide
In October I showed you six different ways that I used my Cuttlebug for making backgrounds and the different techniques I used to accent each design. (For those who did not see my first blog, a picture of Cuttlebug Christmas designs before making the cards is shown below. To see the entire blog article, please go here.) To see a larger version of any photo, click on it.
Today I’m showing you the finished cards I made with the Cuttlebug designed background paper.
All 6 of the cards are 5.5” x 4.25”. For making these cards I used stamps, solid and printed papers, inks, die-cuts, punches, ribbon, brads, pearls, rhinestones, Glitz Spritz and sparkler dots.
The first row card starts with the Polar Bear by Memory Box, the circle is by Nellie’s Multi Frames. The middle top card stamps are Poinsettia by Heartfelt Creations, Joy Wreath by Inkadinkado and text Unknown. The diecuts are by Spellbinder. The blue Angel is Unknown. The punch is by McGill.
The bottom row begins with an owl stamp and text by Inkadinkado, I sprayed the owl with Glitz Spritz by Moon Glow. The center is a Poinsettia by Heartfelt Creations, text by Recollections. The diecut is by Nellie’s Multi Frames. On the last card the angel and text are Unknown.
Hint: Years ago, when I first started stamping, I would go to shows, buy rubber, and never mark the designer. I now make sure that each stamp is marked; otherwise I couldn’t come home and look at their website or know where to purchase additional stamps I enjoy by the same designers.
I’ve really used my Cuttlebug a lot this year for my cards. Here are a couple more samples for you. You don’t have to have holiday embossing folders to make a Christmas card. Anything will work. (Stamp Credits: Kings by Heartfelt Creations; deer by Inkadinkado).
Using embossing folders can be fast and an easy way to create backgrounds. Have fun playing with it.
