Using new QuicKutz 12" border folders for card-making
Yesterday I posted a peek at a card that I made using a tutorial that I wrote up for a guest spot on the Cuttlebug Challenge blog. Here's a look at the full card now that the tutorial has been posted over there....
I made this card using Spellbinders butterfly die set and patterned card stock by K & Company. The sentiment is by Penny Black and stamped using Memento ink. The embossed designs were made by first embossing with the QuicKutz 12" scalloped border folder, then embossing over that using one of the folders from the Cuttlebug Frills border set. More details about using these border folders can be found in my Guest Designer post on the Cuttlebug Challenge blog.
I've always liked combining the folder designs--just check out double Cuttling, creative double Cuttling, double 'bossing, or double 'bossing revisited in my tutorials list over in the sidebar if you don't believe me. ;-) It's a quick and easy way to give a clean and simple card design some added pop. These new border folders by QuicKutz are a fun addition to the embossing arsenal. I didn't think I'd need them, but I'm glad that I bought some anyway. :-)
