Koi Pond Card by Lori B.

Get out your Cuttlebug Plum Blossom embossing folders, and your Stickles to make this fun Koi Pond Card.

For this card, you will need a scrap piece of plastic packaging (acetate), sized 4" x 5.25". Place this in your koi pond embossing folder and run it through your Cuttlebug. On the back side, you will use your Stickles to fill in the embossed areas. NOTE: do the blue & orange from the back. After it dries, you will flip it over and do the black and white from the front.

Use a black card base and mount a 4" x 5.25" piece of blue cardstock to the front. Then use Glossy Accents to glue your embossed plastic to the blue cardstock. (You will "hide" the Glossy Accents by putting it only on the areas where the Stickles will cover it).

Items available at Cutters Creek:
Other item:

  • recycled plastic packaging (I used part of a Cricut cartridge package)
