This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we are having a real challenge...double embossing! Nilda has a wonderful tutorial on this technique and you will find that HERE.
Ok so I totally cheated this week...my best crafting compadre Donna came over and graciously let me use the templates she had already slaved over! I do not own (yet) any Nesties so I would have had to get really creative to take part of this challenge (and between you and me, I am not feeling particularly creative this week.) So a BIG thanks girlfriend for your help, plus it was nice to get to visit with you (and Jordie thinks so too!)
My husbands very best (and only) friend (LOL!) just had a baby girl on tuesday. Isla Mechelle. This is my friend Selena's first child and she really really wanted a little girl and she waited until the baby's birth to find out the sex...what a wonderful surprise!
So I made this card for them...
I think that maybe next time I would make the card smaller because after putting it together I think there is too much "empty" space...but thats ok.
Here is a close up of the double embossing action! I chose the "reverse" so the Nesties embossing is actually "up", a really neat look.
I took this in hopes to show how lovely the shimmery paper looks! I used Martha punches for the tiny flowers and butterflies. A little Stickles for flower centers and I called this card done! Of course you look at the end result and think "simple"...so that just means it took you 2 hours instead of 2 days! LOL! But then again...only us fellow crafters would understand that!
Ok so I took this silly little video of baby Cody and wanted to share it because...well it's too stinking cute! LOL! This is Cody at 8 months old...is he sad or is he happy? You be the judge
