Today’s Tuesday’s Tutorial comes from Lydia Jackson. Ever wonder how to use your Cuttlebug Embossing folders for a border on a layout? Keep reading…
NOTE: Remember to work from the BACK of the Core’dinations Cardstock because you will be sanding on the front of the paper.
Using a rolling pin and firm pressure, roll over the folder to create the embossed image.
Turn the cardstock over and sand:
Here is the finished layout. Isn’t that border fantastic? NOTE: Notice how Lydia overlapped the corners so you don’t have to worry about them lining up exactly. It adds to the whimsical feel of this adorable layout!
Supplies: Core’dinations Core Essentials, Cuttlebug folders from Provocraft.
