Friendzy Friday Submission

Every friday, one of the 2SF design team members posts a tip, technique or storage idea on the store blog. This week it was my turn, and here is what I submitted....

One of my favourite ways to add texture to a card or layout is by using my Cuttlebug. It is very easy to use and the effect is awesome! There are several different embossing folders available for the Cuttlebug, giving effects from whimsical to elegant, as well as seasonal themes

And depending on the paper you choose to emboss you could have even more options! If you use white core cardstock, you can gently sand the embossed paper for an aged or distressed effect.
Or you can lightly run an ink pad over the top to highlight the raised/embossed portion.
As an added bonus technique you can use your circle punch to punch out a circle, then put the punched circle partly back into the punch and punch again, this will give you a leaf shape.



Put all your pieces together, add a little flower and brad, and this is what you get!!
Hope you all have fun with your Cuttlebugs!
