Happy Birthday, Dad

I made this card for my dad. I also found the idea for the inked embossing on in the cuttlebugg-ers discussion.

  1. Stretch Your Imagination expressions cartridge (balloons)
  2. Opposites Attract expressions cartridge (dad)
  3. Happy Birthday embossing folder (cuttlebug)
  4. Sandpaper
  5. It's A Guy Thing paper pack (CTMH)
  6. Chocolate ink (CTMH)
  7. Baby wipes or stamp cleaner of choice
  8. bling (michaels)


  1. Using your ink, ink the side of your folder where it says 'cuttlebug'. I ran the pad across the folder till it was covered
  2. Add your paper (be VERY careful when doing this so you don't smudge your work)
  3. Run it through your cuttlebug and remove CAREFULLY
  4. IMMEDIATELY clean your folder off
  5. Use your sandpaper and distress your paper (the white area on my photo)
  6. You can cut your pc's out using your expressions anytime
  7. Using glue dots, adhere your words and balloons and you're done!
