I realized that I had not used my Cuttle bug folders in quite some time. So I went through my stash, and decided to use the Birds, and Swirls embossing folder. I cut the "Beautiful" image from the Lacy Labels cartridge at 5", and embossed it. The folder did not cover the lower portion of the cut, but that's ok, because I planned to add a sentiment to the lower section. I cut two mats to add to my card base, then added foam tape to the embossed frame, and attached it to the mats. The small oval cut was perfect to help frame some of the birds towards the bottom. I cut a scalloped strip using a Martha Stewart edge punch, added foam tape to this as well, and attached it in the center of the card. To finish it off, I added the pink satin ribbon, and for the final touch added two of my home made stick pins. If you haven't used your embossing folders in a while, why not dig them out, and enjoy making some beautiful cards.
