Simple & Elegant Congratulations Card with Vicki
When you need a card in a hurry, the Cuttlebug is a great, easy way to put a simple and elegant card together.
I started with a standard white A2 card. I used the Cuttlebug Emboss A2 Musical Flourish
to emboss the entire front of the card. Next, I found a paper print I liked from the Echo Park Splash 6x6 Paper Pad (http://cutterscreek.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=380_402&products_id=4267&zenid=7qtvhu05i9jihv4n6s76f0k2s6).
As soon as I saw the little whale print, I knew that was the one! I found two solid coordinating papers, and made two nested rectangles with a slim 1/8" border. I then nexted my whale paper within those rectangles, with the same slim border. I wanted this ribbon-like strip to stand out, so I attached it using 3D Foam dots similar to the Joy! Foam Pads carried in the store
Next, I pulled out my Gypsy, and created a title using the Quarter Note cartridge. I thought it would be fun to do a play on words with the print. The title "Whale Done" was cut on plain coordinating card stock. I attached it with my Sakura Quickie Glue Pen
The result is a quick and easy card, that can be used for any job well done!
