Cuttlebug Be Inspired #20- Valarie Salmon Sketch

You are in for a fun treat at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog this week!! Valerie Salmon, owner of "Got Sketch" and "Got Crafts", has provided us with a sketch to base our projects on this week. This is the sketch for your "Be Inspired #20" challenge.
And here is my card based on it! I dry embossed the bottom and right side edges of the kraft cardbase with my Cuttlebug and the dotted "Just My Type" embossing border. After that I dry embossed a 1/2 inch strip of kraft cardstock using my Cuttlebug and the dotted "With Love" embossing border. Once the dry embossing was done, I layered some patterned paper and the embossed strip to the front, and accented with a felt flower and jewel flourishes. I then added the sentiment rub-ons directly below the embossing to give it a simple feel, but still make it stand out.
"Thank You" Card
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Hambly Screen Prints
Felt Flower: Provo Craft
Jewels: Prima
Pearl Center: Glitz Designs
Rub-ons: 7Gypsies
Corner Rounder: EK Success

If you are ever looking for a store that has a good stock of embossing folders (or Cuttlebug product in general), I recommend CreativeXpress. They almost always have the items you want in stock, and are always putting items on sale. This is where I get all my Cuttlebug product from, and they ship really fast too!

I hope you have an inspired Wednesday,
~Lea

  13. You know what's funny? Yesterday evening I was talking to my other half who said he loves the combination of yellow and blue and I said, that I am not a fan of those colours together.

    Well Lea - you have just changed my mind because this card ROCKS!!!
