So Saturday Challenge #9

Welcome back to So Saturday Challenge #9 by Card Creations & More. This week Christina challenged us to use some sort of embossing. Easy Peasy!
I decided to use the cartridge A Child's Year. This is one I really haven't used much, if at all. I guess, I just used to all the layers and stuff with the other cartridges. The last time the Cuttlebug stuff was on sale at Michael's, I picked up the star embossing folder. I inked the inside of the folder with Stampin Up Brilliant Blue and then ran my paper through the Cuttlebug. I did the same thing with the strip folder and SU Real Red ink. Doesn't it look awesome?
I cut the silhoutte at 4 in and ran it through the dots embossing folder and then inked the edges in a neutral color. I wanted the star to stand out more, so I added a yellow star. One thing I did notice when cutting the image and it's shadow is that they didn't match up like they are supposed to when using real size on the Cricut. I had to go back and shrink and recut the image to get it to fit better with the shadow.
I can't wait to see what ya'll come up with for this weeks challenge!


  1. Darlene,

    Well done on the embossing challenge. Love it!!!! Inking the folder insides is something I love to do and gives such a wonderful effect. I don't have either of those folders and after looking at your project, it is now on my must get list. LOL
