Cuttlebug Be Inspired #19- Emboss Acetate

Wednesday means it's time for a new challenge at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog! This week's Be Inspired #19 was to emboss acetate or acrylic. I ran the green Heidi Swapp ghost letters through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. They went through the machine so easily...I almost thought it didn't work the first time. But lo and behold, it worked perfectly! I love the added texture the dots give to the letters...it really makes them pop off the card!
"Thanks So Much" Card
Supplies:
Premade cardbase: The Paper Company
Paper: Chatterbox
Acetate letters: Heidi Swapp
Rub-ons: Scrapworks
Rhinestones: Doodlebug Designs
Ink: Clearsnap
Border Punch: Fiskars

Hope you liked my card for this week! Be sure to hop on over the the Cuttlebug Challenge blog to see all the other fabulous creations this week!

Talk to you later,
