Here are step by step instructions for visual learner. Click on the images for a close up look.
Open your Cuttlebug, place first your A Plate, then a B plate down. Place your cardstock piece (here 4″ square of Whisper White) partially in your cuttlebug folder and place it on top of your plates.
Place another B plate on top of your embossing folder. Run your sandwich through your Cuttlebug.
Your cardstock will look like this.
If wanted, repeat the first two steps on the opposite side.
I added scored lines with my Scor-Pal. Make sure you have the side with the indented embossed image facing up (wrong side up). If I want to add two lines 1/4″ apart, I line the first line up with my 4″ mark, then I can use the 4 1/4″ mark for the next line.
Your finished cardstock will look like this. Stamp, and adhere to your card. You can also stamp first, then emboss.
The cuttlebug folder used is called Swiss Dots. It’s sold out in most places right now. I lucked out when I got mine at Eclectic Paperie.
You can use other scoring tools to make your horizontal lines. I didn’t think I needed my Scor-Pal until I got it. I LOVE it and use it all the time. No more ripping the paper if you push down to hard (with my Fiskars cutter/scoring tool). No more moving the paper when making several scores. It makes scoring so easy, a caveman can do it (sorry….I watch too much TV).
I hope this helps anyone that couldn’t wrap their mind around this before. Hugs and smiles
