How Did You Emboss Just The Front W/The Cuttlebug?

Okay... so I was feeling really horrible today (bad headaches), but when I got back to the computer, I had like six emails asking how I embossed just the front of my card with the Cuttlebug embossing folder. SO... no one better feel stupid!! LOL. It' s NOT a dumb question.

Here we go!!

Put down your big A sized white Cuttlebug pad, then your clear B size. Lay down your embossing folder (landscape) and open it up. Place your card front in the folder.

Close the embossing folder and line in up where you want your embossing to start. You need to line it up with your score line if you don't want your card to be embossed on the inside too. Leave the other side hanging out.

Put your other B clear plate over the top and run it through your bug. WHALAAAA!! Your card is embossed on the front only. :)

I seriously had to giggle just a bit as I kept reading the same.... "I need to ask a stupid question" in each email. Trust me, it took awhile for me to figure out too. Oh, I needed a giggle today.

Hope that helps. Sorry about the light reflection, but I just threw it down on my messy desk to show ya'll.

Have a super evening and have fun Cuttlebuggin' baby!!

I'm with Jennifer - duhhhh! I think my brain was fried the day I tried it and just never did it again! I am such a visual learner, thanks for taking the time to explain this Cambria - you rock!

Susie said...

Aahhh, thank you! I'm the kind that just wonders and doesn't ask. I've wondered about this for quite a while! I always learn from you - thanks. Sue

Now I have another question -- how can you do only the front of a card with the happy birthday folder? I CAN'T GET IT RIGHT!!!!

THANKS!! I have often wondered how people were doing that. It makes so much sense when you see it with the pictures. Thanks for taking the time to show us how it's done. Jenny

Thanks for the tip! Now, get off the dang computer and take care of that headache! I'm off to take an Excedrin for Migraine right now myself!

Better living through chemistry, baby!

Hope you feel better soon!

WooHoo!! You are such a smarty! Thank you for filling us all in. :-)

Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well earlier. Hope you are doing better now.

Cambria, just ran to my CB and tried it; of course it works. Thank you so much. Why did I think it was so difficult? Now I need to figure out how to line up the little folders on the card face to emboss (like corners) and have them turn out even. Sounds like a mission for this weekend....

What a MARVELOUS discovery, you rock!!! TFS.

Cambria Turnbow said...

You would do the birthday folder the same way. Just put your front part in the way you want it, line it up, then let the rest of the card hang out. Lay it anyway it will fit on the cutting pads and run it through your bug. :)

I love the directions, so tongue in cheek! Sometimes the simple ideas are so cool.

Hi Cambria,

I just started my own blog and wanted to know if it's ok to put a link back to your site on mine. I get such great inspiration from you and want to make sure I give credit where credit is due.

Cambria Turnbow said...
