Quick Cuttlebug Card: Two tone cuttlebuggin'


This simple card was inspired by a layout of a card in the Demo newsletter--with hodgepodge hardware. It's for a belated thank you (I get so far behind with those.) This won't be a long post (evil migraine strikes again... had my head examined the day before yesterday though, lol) actually a CT scan. It sounded like a UFO or a fun fair ride. The machine spins around your head...so Sci-fi. And apparently, I do have a brain in there, hehehe. :0)

Card details:

  • Cuttlebugged two colours and cut to create 2 panels
  • Swiped Soft Sky piece with White craft ink
  • Adhered pieces to Basic Grey mat
  • Edged with the silver end of a Zig Painty pen (to tie in hodge podge hardware)
  • Added white organza and hand-dyed taffeta (was white is now basic gray)
  • Stamped the flower from Carte Postale in Soft Sky ink
  • Over-stamped sentiment from the same set in Stazon
  • Trimmed to fit hodge podge (you could use the punch; it may be the only punch I don't have)
  • Added silver & glitter details to the flowers
  • Assembled everything
Happy Crafting,

Mel, your creativity lately has been astounding. So sorry to hear your migraines are interfering with all that. Headaches are so nasty. Love the cuttlebug card. You are such an inspiration to me.
