Still Cuttling cards

I'm still playing around with diagonal Cuttling. This time I thought I'd try using two different folders. Not sure that I'd go with this particular combo again, but it was an interesting change of pace.

I used the Cuttlebug Traffic Jam and Distressed Stripes folders and made my score lines using my Scor-It. The cupcake and sentiment are by Hero Arts. I colored the cupcake using a modified magic colored pencil (MCP) technique--Prismacolor pencils and a Goo Gone pen.

For this card I went back to using the Swiss Dots folder because I wanted to try embossing diagonally in two directions. This folder has a good pattern for that. So I ran my card through twice, going diagonally in two different directions and then partially Cuttled anything at the corners that had been missed. I stamped the owl from Inkadinkado in the unembossed spot and again colored it with the modified MCP technique. I stamped the sentiment by Hero Arts and embellished with some bling and a strip of metallic cardstock that I embossed using the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles folder.


  1. Thanks for another way to use the folder. I also love the owl.

  2. I love the effect on this card
