Woohoo!! I can emboss!! :-))
When the fabulous Lols, read that I had no embossing things
she sent me a Cuttlebug swirls folder (along with some little mice!)
- what a STAR ***
So here's my first attempt with it.
I think I got my layers a little wrong,
'cos it cut right through in some places,
but I do love the texture it gives you.
The butterfly is a Spellbinders die, which doesn't get used much because it's the devil of a job to get the paper out, once it's been cut. I did see a little trick about adding a layer of wax paper first, so I will give that a try.
I used a neat little trick for adding the glitter. I put a wide strip of DS tape on my card, then die cut my oval. I peeled off the tape backing and pressed the sticky side into my glitter. Easy peasy and much less messy than glue.

I just want to say how totally thrilled I was when my 'white on white' card was ShowCASed at Less Is More last week.
There was such a lot of awesome talent on display,
I was stunned to be chosen.
Huge thank you to Chrissie and Mandi
and to everyone who left me such lovely comments.
