Halloween in March anyone???
This is my second Cuttlebug Challengehttp://thecuttlebugspot.blogspot.com/ and I'm loving it! The challenge this week is to use 2 different embossing folders on the same paper. I had to pull out my big binder of Cuttlebug embossing folders and think hard to come up with this one. Are you ready? You may have to look closely, but I tried to get the best picture I could to show both folders I used. Click on the picture for a close-up look.
First I ran through white cardstock and the "Distressed Stripes" folder, then I brayered the "Boo To You" folder with pumpkin pie ink and ran the paper through the Cuttlebug again. I really liked how it turned out. Then I used the Holloween Sign embossing folder and die cut to make the sign. I cut the die first, then brayered the embossing folder with black ink before running it through the Cuttlebug. I pullled out my chalks, (poor things have been so neglected since I gave them up for gamsol and prismacolor pencils) and I colored in the image. I decided to back the image with black and pumpkin pie layers, which I cut by hand and then popped the top and bottom layers with dimensionals. I added the ribbon, button and finally the little googly eyes, which I mounted on 3/16" black circles. I mounted all that to a card base of pumpkin pie.
Ahh, now she's done you say...but no, just when she thought she was ready to take a picture and submit the card for the challenge, a light bulb came on in her head....what if she were to make that Halloween Sign part of the challenge by using another embossing folder on it, thereby achieving the challenge x2??? But, that would mean she would have to start all over with the sign because she would have to run the paper through with her other folder first or she would lose the sign image. That would be CRAZY! Of course, that is exactly what I did! This time I took my white paper and put it through the cuttlebug using my distressed stripes again. When I cut the die, I cut it with the stripes running across instead of up and down so it would be opposite the embossed background piece. Out came the chalks again (they were so happy to be out in the light for so long) and there you have it...a Halloween card embossed twice on the same paper x2!!!
Hope you like it. I had a blast doing it! Thanks for a great challenge!
