Cuttlebug Be Inspired #18- Shaped Card

I'm not really big on announcements, but last week I was asked to be part of the Senior Design Team at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. Because I love my Cuttlebug and I really want to use it more, I jumped at the chance to say yes. This is my first time being part of the Wednesday Inspiration challenge!!

My first challenge, which is Be Inspired #18, was to make a shaped card. My mind went immediately to my "Hello Kitty Greetings" cartridge, because it has TONS of cute shapes, and actually has a card function on it. So, my first step was to cut the card shape out from black cardstock, and then to cut its layers from the two patterned papers. I chose a strawberry shaped card for my project, so after cutting the layers...I ran the green strawberry top through my Cuttlebug using the "Swiss Dots" embossing folder. I then sanded to top lightly to bring the dots out a little bit.
Once I was done with that, I layered the card together, and added some embellishments and the sentiment. And voila...here is the finished product!
I think it is pretty sweet!"You Are Berry Loved" Card
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Patterned Paper: American Crafts & Doodlebug Designs
Letter Stickers: American Crafts & Making Memories
Jewels: Prima
Twine: Darice
Craft Supply: button, ribbon, sandpaper

I hope you all enjoyed my first "Cuttlebug Be Inspired" challenge as a design team member! I can't wait to see what you do with the challenge!

Have a wonderful Wednesday,
~Lea

  28. I agree...that card IS sweet! I just love how it turned out (my favorite part is the crystal swirls...but you probably knew I'd say that, right? ;-D). Like all your projects, it's beautiful! Anyone would be blessed to receive it.

    Thanks so much for the detailed instructions on creating it, Lea! I really do need to break out my Cricut more often an use it the way you do! LOL!

    Have a great Valentine's Day and a wonderful weekend, Lea! :)

    Blessings,
