Lookie, lookie...

Woo-hoo! I'm so excited to finally be cutting again. It seems like forever since I've dusted off my machine. The bonus? It's all for you...yup, this means new files coming up, because I'm finally finishing up some test cuts and tweaks.

Here's a peek at a new file I just got in the store...It's an Ornamental Flourish. It's perfect when cut out of vinyl for a wall-hanging plate but it's also designed to be cut from chipboard and used to emboss card front. All I did was cut the file from light weight chipboard (I'm honest...I used the back of a cereal box). Then I laid it behind the front of a precut, prepackaged 5 by 7 card (you know...the bag of 50 blank ones at the craft stores?). Place one or two of the tan rubbery spellbinders pads over top, run it through the cuttlebug, and voila! It's so easy to make an entire set of ornate cards perfect for gift giving.

I'm also including an triangular Flourish which fits right on the envelope flap as well. That way the envelope can match the card! Wouldn't it make a great Mother's Day gift? Just wrap up a stack of envelopes and cards, tie with a ribbon, maybe add a pen? I added two lines along the bottom front edge of the card with my Martha Stewart Scoring Board.

So, just click on one of the photos to go directly to this in the Paperthreads store!


  1. Looks great Jen! That would be a wonderful gift.

  2. Beautiful embossing - so sophisticated. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. That is so cleaver! I never would have thought to do that. Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us.

  4. I love it! You make me want to emboss!

  5. Gorgeous embossing, I love that the flap matches the inside card.

  6. Oh, and I had just about convinced myself I would never need a Cuttlebug...these are beautiful!!


Hi! I'd love to hear from you, so...leave me a message!
