Cuttlebug Spot Challenge #6
This card was definitely a work "in progress" today! The challenge was to use a Christmas folder, and a border punch. Okay....then I read SusieB's tutorial on using rubber stripping to emboss only around the edges. I didn't have the rubber, so I wondered if Fun Foam would work,,,,it does!!! Then I tried it with a stamped message in the center, and used MS new star border punch on the edges. After quite a while, the "AH, HA!!!" moment came, and I put scotch tape behind the holes, sprinkled on gold embossing powder, and VOILA!!! beautiful gold stars along the border! Add some sparkling jewels to the snowflakes, clear embossing powder to the lettering, a message inside, and it's finally finished. I certainly learned a lot today!! I hope you did, too.
