Wedding Anniversary Card

This had to be a quick and easy card because I ran out of time, but I still wanted it to be pretty. I think I managed that, what do you all think?


I used the Framed Labels One M-Bossabilities folder to dry emboss the card. Stamped the image,
coloured it using copics, and cut it out with the Spellbinders Label one Die. Added the sentiment, some pearls and twine and called it done.  All the cardstock was from my stash of scraps.

I have to tell you that I had a very difficult time embossing this card using the M-Bossabilities folder with my Cuttlebug.  I had to make various shimmies out of cereal boxes in order to get it to work.  With the regular embossing folders, I normally start my "sandwich" with the A plate, then a B plate, the embossing folder with the cardstock in it, then another B plate.  Well these plates do not fit with this M-Bossabilities folder.  It is much thicker than the regular ones. I tried various plate combinations including my C plate but nothing worked.  If anyone has mastered this, won't you please let me know?  I know that these folders are supposed to be used in bigger machines, such as the Bigshot and the Grand Calibur, but I never had a problem using folders in my Cuttlebug before.  I've had my Cuttlebug for about 5 years now and I've been very happy with it.  It's small and compact and doesn't take up a lot of space on my shelf.

So this was my 2c about this folder - beautiful and good quality but not Cuttlebug friendly :)

Thank you for stopping by today.
  Enjoy your day.
Hugs,
Lena
