a Cuttlebug Valentine

This weekend's make-'n-take at CAM (link at right) was this Cuttlebug-inspired Valentine made from a few embossing folders and two hearts from a store membership Accucut die. CAM carries a LARGE selection of Accucut dies; some are available for anyone to use while others are reserved for store club members - their explosion box die is one of these, and FWIW, makes the boxes way easier to assemble!

I used my ColorBox ink pad to smudge edges and highlight all of the embossed pieces - and it went oh-so-perfectly with the plum ribbon, don't 'cha think?!

the deets? ink: ColorBox Dusty Plum; tools: Cuttlebug w script texture, swiss dots, and textile texture embossing folders; accessories: kewl 2-sided ribbon - plum on one side and brown on the other (the inside sentiment's stamped in brown - oh so matchy-matchy)

Very pretty! The ink really highlights the embossing :)
