Cuttlebug Challenge - Simple White Card

I've not managed a Cuttlebug challenge for a while, but as this one was nice and easy and I knew exactly what I was going to do, I thought I'd give it a go!

The challenge this week is to create a simple white card.

I've used the D'vine embossing folder directly onto my card stock (slightly trimmed down to fit in my Sizzix red machine!) and I left the non-embossed areas as I thought it added a bit of something... The three flowers have been cut from some very lovely mulberry coloured tissue which has gold thread running through it - this was left over from some Wedding embellishments I made a while ago. And I've used my very new Cuttlebug flowers die (bought from ebay - Nova Crafts - for an absolute steal of £8.99!) so you'll be seeing a lot more of these flowers!

Pearl brads attach the flowers to the card. I was going to add a sentiment but decided against it - my handwriting isn't the best for a card and this particular occasion and I thought that the simpleness of it all was enough. Bit like me eh?!

  • Dies / Embossing: Cuttlebug flowers and D'vine swirls embossing folder
  • Tissue: From my stash
  • Brads: Papermania


  1. I love your card, its stunning I have just ordered a Cuttlebug just to use the embossing folders as I keep seeing such great cards with them, your card has just made me even more impatience, I hope it arrives tomorrow. lol
