Now lying awake this morning I thought about creating an embossed cross. I created the cross in SCAL then centered it on a rectangle measuring
4" X 5.25".
Then I cut 4 of the crosses inside the rectangles on a heavy weight card stock (I had to use the cut twice option and the heavy weight blade).
After lining up the rectangles with the negative crosses and gluing them together I glued the 4 crosses together and secured them on a piece of cardboard matching that up with the negative crosses thus creating an embossing folder.
I'm happy to say it worked but I didn't use it here. Instead I layered and glued 4 crosses together to create an "old rugged cross" inked with Rangers vintage photo ink and distressing the cross with ...pliers. You know they have the gripping ridges. It really makes a difference close up.
Next I made a "punny bunny"card. I used the same Cuttlebug embossed frame folder with SB (SpellBinders) oval cut die to create the negative space. I framed that with the 3 double punched flowers and leaves. I used tiny beads to add color to the flowers. The bunny and the chick are svg cuts available in the SCAL library of basic shapes-Spring. If you don't have a die cutting machine or Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) you just don't know what I'm talking about. It's a great option often forgotten.
Wow do you notice the ridges on the bunny cut? That's the fabulous quality of
Gina K's Pure Luxury card stock. Again I had to double cut it, then layered 2 pieces together, and for added dimension its attached with foam squares. Colorful eggs were added and a black seed bead for an eye and a cotton ball tail with the sentiment
"A cute little tail attracts a lot of attention." So fun.
