My lovely friend Martine bought me a set of Cuttlebug embossing 'strips' a while back and I hadn't used them properly until yesterday when I was inspired to use them on envelopes. They gave a great look to a plain envelope! Then I needed to make some cards today and was thinking up how I could use them but keep them as the focal point of the card. Here's what I came up with. Apologies for the terrible pictures I will change the pictures tomorrow if I get a chance when I can photograph them in daylight. Hopefully you can see well enough for now.
Here is a better picture in daylight of another one I made similar but with a different sentiment
I made a few of these with different sentiments and ribbons. They were remarkably simple but are quite effective really.
