Cuttlebug 'Thank You'

This was made for Cuttlebug Be Inspired #15 which, as far as I was concerned was certainly a challenge! I ended up using practically every Cuttlebug folder I possess for this one.

I cut the circles out of Core'dinations card stock using my Cricut, then embossed them with the cuttlebug and then sanded them so the core colour (pale pink) highlighted the embossing.

The 'Thank you' was stamped in Stazon 'Jet Black' and I decorated the buttons, which came from my button jar, with a black peel-off pen.

I finished the card off with a scalloped edge peel-off as I thought the left hand side looked a bit naked -- I don't know whether I was right or not! Perhaps ribbon would have looked better?


  1. This is beautiful,love the combination of colors!

  2. I love it just as it is Ali but would have said the same if you'd used the ribbon so either would work
