Cards Using Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and Cuttlebug

Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Card make Hero Arts stamps

Now that these cards have been given away I can now post them here. They are both constructed in basically the same way.

Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Card make Hero Arts stamps

This is a run down of how I made them.
  1. Using my Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dots embossing folder I ran the cardstock through the machine to create the raised dots effect on the front. I left approximately one inch (2.5cm) unembossed.
  2. I then very lightly and randomly ran an ink pad over the dots to create a little more definition. (it is a tad difficult to see in the photos, but trust me it's there) I used a copper colour on the pink card and jade green on the sage coloured card.
  3. For the pink card I added a strip of spotted paper printed from a freebie download(I can't quite remember where at the moment, but will post a link as soon as I find it). For the sage card I stamped a flourish using lavender ink and Hero Arts Designer Butterflies Clear Stamp set.
  4. Finally I added some ribbon to match.
These cards were so much fun to make and so quick too, less than 10 minutes each. I love cards that make up quickly, that look great and I will be using this basic design sketch again. By varying the colours, papers, stamps and embossing folders, I will be able to create many different and unique cards.

Why don't you have a go. If you don't have embossing folders, use something else instead. Try miniature stamps repeatedly stamped over the card or even textured cardstock or handmade paper. I would love to see your creations. Post a link in the comments and I will pop over for a peek!

  1. Very pretty. I don't make cards, but I can see where this craft would come in handy when I need that last minute card and don't have time to shop for one. Great idea.

  2. Lovely creation!
    I made cards ages ago but only as something to try out. Now I make just little gift cards to give away to my customers (don't have any photos to show though).
    Ciao, Elena :)

  5. These cards looks really nice and i am happy to see this post and learn some thing more about the cards using swiss dots embossing folder and cuttlebug. Keep up the good work.
