diagonally Cuttled cards, part one

I was having some fun doing some diagonal Cuttling last night. I was using white cards since embossing on white can look so striking. Here are some of the cards that I made using those diagonally Cuttled cardfronts.

All of the stamps were by Hero Arts. The Cuttlebug A2 embossing folders that I used were D'vine Swirl, Mini Mosaic, Perfectly Paisley, and Floral Fantasy. All of my scored lines were made using my Scor-It.


  1. Totally awesome, as I see is rather usual for you!

  2. Jay your tutorials for this are great - what a fab idea! I love the cards you're making using this technique :)

  3. o what a genius you are with the cuttlebug embossing ! I dont have any other machines other than the cuttlebug so i guess I cant do diagonal embossing the way you have apart from cutting smaller pieces of paper on the diagonal !

  4. Hi Jay...I am still trying to diagonally emboss like your Be Happy card on April 7..can you tell me your layers? I only have a cuttlebug....thanks

  5. Lisa, I just did a quick run through on a scrap card. From the bottom up: A plate, folder with card front tucked inside and the back behind, sandwiched between the two long Sizzix plates set at a diagonal across the folder. That embosses the main part of the card front. To do the two corners, use your B plates to sandwich your card and folder, but only feed that part of the corner that you want to emboss through the CB on top of your A plate. Then turn the card around and do the other corner similarly.

    Did that help? I showed part of this in my more recent Equal Time for CB users post, but didn't go into making the corners.

    Thanks everyone for stopping by and for dropping the comments. Appreciate it! :-)

  6. Jay...I know that I was going to have a problem...I don't have the long sizzix plates...will try to come up with something else...will let you know how I make out...thanks from RI

  7. Lisa, I think I've found a reasonable substitute for the long Sizzix plates and I just wrote up a new post about it.

    Hope that does the trick for you or gives you more ideas about what you could use. :-)
