Cuttlebug Challenge

The Cuttlebug Challenge #96 is to use acrylic or acetate and a Cuttlebug on your card or layout.  My base is a CTMH Sunflower cs and a Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder was used on the front of the card.  A two inch square was measured on the front of the card and a straight edge cutter was used to make an "X" from one corner to the opposite corner and the points were folded back and two CTMH square shaped pewter brads were used opposite each other and two Target Retail brads, from the discount bin, were used on the other corners.  A 3 inch square piece of acetate was cut to line the inside of the cut square.  A CTMH Grape Sherbet cs cut at 4 x 5.25 with a square cut out to match the outside square and taped to the inside of the front side of the card.  The image on the back side of the card is a 2.75" square of white cs.  The CTMH wood mounted dragonfly was stamped with a CTMH Grey Wool sp and was colored by CTMH Hydrangea sp using a Q-tip. The wings had Crystal Lacquer applied with glitter added to it.  The border is from the CTMH Simple Stitches acrylic stamp set also in Hydrangea. The white cs was framed by a piece of CTMH Grape Sherbet cs measuring 1/8" larger than the white cs.


  1. Very pretty!:) Love the colors and the detail of the dragonfly. TFS!
