New CB embossing folder

I just got my four new cuttlebug embossing folders and made a card with one of them to show you how awesome they are! I'll be playing around with these for awhile! =)

The four that I got were: Alegro, distressed stripes, paisley and swiss dots. Here is the swiss dots one!


I used a white core piece of card stock, ran it through the cuttlebug and then took my sanding block to it. It really made the dot's pop out!

The gerbera daisy is colored with prisma color pencils and then blended with odorless mineral spirits. I used Palette moulin rouge ink to distress the edges of the two panels. The chipboard is painted white and sprayed with a gloss to add a bit of shine. They are both popped up on deminsionals.

Supplies:
Stamps - TAC Gerbera Daisy, sentiment from TAC - treasure it.
DCWV cardstock
Chipboard
White craft paint
Gloss spray
Palette Noir and Moulin Rouge ink
