cuttlebug challenge #19

This week's Cuttlebug challenge was to emboss a piece of acetate. I used 2 Heidi Swapp letters and embossed them with the Swiss Dots folder. I like how it came out. I attached the letters to the card with French knots using green floss. The letters look bent in the photo but they aren't in person.

Supplies: paper, Basic Grey and Making Memories. embossing folder, Cuttlebug. letters, Heidi Swapp. green floss.


  1. This is so cute Linda! Gorgeous papers and the embossed acetate letters look so effective! Great way of attaching them too - I wouldn't have considered using french knots so thank you for the inspiration! And thanks for playing along this week at,
