More Big Shot / Cuttlebug Creations

Thought I would share some more cards I made with my Big Shot using various dies and embossing folders. The Big Shot/Cuttlebug machines really are versatile; haven't met a person yet who regretted buying one.

First is a bright card, reminiscent of a past card I blogged (many moons ago) but I used a flower shaped die to cut FELT. I had my doubts as to whether it would work but it was no different from cardboard, no furry edges.

After all that brightness, I had to go to neutral tones:

I used my brayer to apply white ink to the raised sections of Kraft cardstock. Pretty tricky I thought.

Then I went with one of my favourite colours, purple:

I was really happy with this card, my pick of the bunch. I used a white gel pen to trace around the embossed word "thanks".

And lastly, a simple one, using the technique of sanding the embossed area, this time on decorative paper rather than ColorCore card stock:

I liked the earthy tones of this card.

Hope you enjoyed looking at these and got some ideas along the way, thanks for visiting.

Love from Crafty Kim
