There's a really interesting challenge going on at Less is More at the moment - Bring Something Back.
Well I don't know about you, but I have a whole load of stash that hasn't seen the light of day for a long time, but somehow I can't quite bring myself to ditch it. And now I know why - I need to keep it for challenges like this!
My first ever really big purchase when I began card making was my trusty Cuttlebug Machine and I'm still using it for die cutting on a daily basis today. Yes I've got a fancy eBosser, but that needs to be plugged in and works beautifully but slowly, so it's always my Cuttlebug that I go to.
And I have a feeling this embossing folder was probably included in the bundle that came with it. So my 'bring it back' is embossing folders that once upon a time I used on nearly every card I made, but now rarely get a look in.
In fact I was feeling so guilty about showing so little love to my embossing folders that I made a second card.
And then I remembered why I stopped using embossing folders - I can never get a clean look without those tell tale creases where the edges of the folder hit the card. So this one got trimmed down to cut those ugly bits off before being matted onto the pink strip.
Embossing: Cuttlebug folders
Dies: Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables; Spellbinders, classic large squares; Lil'inker, stitched mats long & skinny rectangles
It's been great fun to share my 'bring it back' with you today. Thanks so much for dropping by.
And keep crafting!
