TWO SUNNY CARDS FOR THE MIDDLE OF WINTER...



Now that I have the Cuttlebug and the Enveloper, I'm making fast use of both! The yellow card was done by punching out and repositioning 2 of the circles from the CB embossed piece. The ribbon I had on hand matches perfectly, and the small stamp fit the hole just right. Things don't always work out that well.

The blue card was done with a brass embossing template. I tried putting it through the CB, but couldn't get a clear image with it, even though I used the "sandwich" recommended on SCS; so I wound up doing it with my light box. (If anyone knows a better way to do this on the CB, please leave a comment!) For the cloud, I used the same template, moving it up to make a narrower cloud shape. The blue CB swirls are suggestive of the wind, I think. "A sunny hello" was stamped on white, mounted on yellow cs and edged with yellow Stickles.

What fun to be able to play with new toys!
