Cuttlebug Challenge

One of my favorite gifts this Christmas was a new Cuttlebug machine and two embossing folders! I haven’t used them too much, but the machine does make cutting letters for titles so much easier.  I really wanted the maching so I could use the embossing folders.

Thanks to Southernbelle from the Start a Scrapbook forum, I heard about the Cuttlebug challenge blog, and after taking a peek in there today I decided to try their weekly challenge.

Challenge #13 was to create a simple white card. The card that Kim from the design team made was beautiful and I tried to recreate the look on my own.  My finished card is 5 X 7 so I had to emboss the card top twice to span the width. The top half of the card needs a little bit of work when lining up the image, but I think for a first try, it looks pretty darn good!
