Amazing You

My not so secret sister on the Cricut message board that I send to sent me this "You" Cuttlebug embossing folder as a very special surprise. Thank you Sharon! I've FINALLY had a chance to use it!


I had a purple card base and a black card front sitting on my desk, so I just went with it! I just wanted to use my NEW embossing folder! I embossed the black, ticket punched the corners, and then I rubbed a white ink pad over it. I wanted to emphasize the "YOU", so I also used my White Galaxy marker on top of it, then I outlined it with Stickles. I then embossed just the word "amazing" in purple with the same folder. I rubbed black ink on it, and I mounted it right above the word "YOU". I love the emphasis that is drawn to what I want to say, which is "Amazing You". I added a layered stack of three Primas with a rhinestone brad, and then I tied two ribbons around the top. I love the way this turned out! I love the purple with the black!

Thanks for stopping by!
