Today's Tip

Emboss without cuttlebug!

If you are like me, do not own a cuttlebug but want that beautiful embossing on your cards, here is the tip.Take your rolling pin and apply good pressure on the folder with paper.Go over it again and again in various directions..you achieve what you want!!happy?

ET's addition to the tip: Mist the paper before embossing and the design would be much more prominent and you wont have to put too much pressure. Thanks ET!


  1. such an awesome tip.. never thought of it... the ribbon flowers looks very cute :)

  2. Great tip and awesome card.....loved it.

  3. your embossing tip is great, i have an addition to make... mist the paper before embossing and the design would be much more prominent and you wont have to put too much pressure. I know this because I have done this for almost a year before my aunt finally brought my bug to Pakistan!
    Now on to your fabulous fabulous card! You combined two great challenges, Card patterns and PDCC and the result is total gorgeousness!
    Your flower looks amazing! You have brought your own style to it. I love the placement of buttons and the daisy flower behind it.. SOOOPER fabulous! YOU DID IT! :D
    Thanks for playing along my challenge at Yvonne's blog. Good Luck!
