Cuttlebug Card Idea

For this card I used the Anna Griffin Cuttlebug embossing folder, the snowflake card - anna griffin christmas cards“Snowflake Bundle” die cut and embossing set, and of course my Cuttlebug machine, as well as the rubber embossing mat, (this is a must if you are using dies). And then whatever paper you want for your image and your card base.

Here is a quick tutorial on how to use the die cut and embossing folders. Use this “sandwich” for die cutting starting from the bottom and working your way to the top

  • A Plate
  • Rubber Mat
  • B Plate
  • Die Cutting/Embossing folder smooth side to the B Plate
  • Paper of your choice facedown
  • B Plate

Then run through your Cuttlebug machine. This will die cut your image.

NOTE: this will leave a little bit of a mark on your B plate that’s OK it will still work just fine.

If you want to add the embossing then you will want to leave your paper attached to the die.

To emboss you will use this “sandwich”

  • B Plate A Plate
  • Rubber Mat
  • Die Cutting/Embossing folder with paper attached to the paper touching the rubber mat.
  • B Plate

Then run again through your Cuttlebug Machine, and then you can remove your paper. If you have little papers that stick in the die you can use a push pin or paperclip to poke into the little holes of the embossing folder and it will easily remove them.

Then that’s it! With two simple steps, you can quickly die cut and emboss your image quickly to make quick and easy Christmas cards.
