A "Cuttle" of my Bug Creations

Bah...it's funny, right? Ok, only to a gal whose due date with #1 was today with no signs of anything happening. Anyhow, back to the good stuff...here are a couple of my Cuttlebug Creations. One is a birthday card for my favorite (and only) niece Kamala and one for DH who actually braided the copper for the card.

I completely loved the patterned paper from Die Cuts With a View. It came pre-glittered!! How can I argue with genius like that?? I used the Happy Birthday embossing folder on the patterned paper and also a sheet of shimmer white, then cut out "happy" and "birthday" from the latter sheet and adhered it to the patterned paper. I layed the patterned paper to a SU orchid opulence card adding a prima with a gem brad and a strip of apricot grograin ribbon.

Stamps: NONE
Paper: DCWV Posies, SU Orchid Opulence, Shimmer White
Accessories: Cuttlebug Happy Birthday, Apricot Grosgrain Ribbon, Prima Flower, Joann's Gem Brad

The inspiration for this card was actually the braided copper wire to the left of the main image. DH likes stripping old electrical cords, saving the copper and decided to braid a few of them for me to use on cards and things.
I used brushed copper paper and the Textile Texture embossing folder for the sheet metal look beneath the celtic cross image. This was then layered onto the green card base. The braided copper wire was attached with two copper brads. The card was finished with hemp twine tied at the base of the copper embossed sheet.

Stamps: Celtic Cross
Ink: SU Basic Brown
Paper: SU Brushed Copper, SU Glorious Green, SU Very Vanilla
Accessories: Cuttlebug Textile Texture, Copper Brads (Joann's), Hemp Twine, Copper Wire
