We're back at The Cuttlebug Spot after a month long rest and celebrating Dads or Grads this week. I did have a graduation card to make and was excited to use some of the new Cuttlebug folders and dies I'd picked up on clearance at various places. Although you must use some type of embossing to enter the challenge I like to challenge myself further to see if I can use ALL Cuttlebug to make my DT cards and this time I did. The school colors are blue and white. I used my Scalloped Square and Circle Nesties to frame the sentiments from the Congrats folders down the side. The light blue strip is embossed with the Cuttlebug Stripes folder. I used the Script folder to emboss a small rectangle and roll it up like a diploma. On a whim I bought the Typewriter Cuttlebug dies because they were so so CHEAP and now think I'll be using them alot. Love how they look in metallic and each time you use it you get both the little rectangles but also the delicate cut out letters. WooHoo!
The mat is popped and so are the circles and the 2 and 1 in 2010 to give a little dimension. Then all I did was add some adhesive beads and a ribbon around the diploma. Easy peasy. We're excited to have you join along in our challenge this week to be eligible to win a gift certificate from Custom Crops and invite you to grab a little inspiration from the rest of DT at The Cuttlebug Spot.
I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. After a day and a half of time off from crafting I was so looking forward to spending the day creating but NOOOOO...I have JURY DUTY! Don't you think that's CRUEL after a holiday? Let's just hope I don't get picked. Also, don't forget to scroll down for the BBTB2 Blog Hop. There are more prizes to be had.
