Calling ALL beginner Cuttlebug Users!

Welcome to the Cuttlebug Blog. We are excited you have stopped by to visit. So relax, kick off your shoes and enjoy your stay here. We have decided to dedicate this site to beginners! (Seasoned Veterans welcome too!) As I am a beginner Cuttlebug'er I have looked around other blogs and get kind of discouraged by all the very advanced (and fabulous) designs. So I thought to myself, beginners need a place to feel welcome, make mistakes (as I am sure I will ;) and grow with creativity! So lets join together and Create, Inspire , Teach, Grow!

Pocket Card Tutorial by Suzann

Start by taking a 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock 
and cut in half long ways-
so that you have (2) pieces that are: 4.25 x 11

Next SCORE your base cardstock in two places-
once at 5.5 from the top
and then 1.5 from the bottom-
fold on the score- then fold the 1.5 piece the opposite direction
this will create a "Z" looking piece of cardstock
Then EMBOSS the front side of the card with your cuttlebug

I added pattern paper and ribbon
corner rounded the edges and used a scallop punch to embellish

Next APPLY thin red tacky tape- along both inside edges of the card

Then CREATE the inside library card style insert~
I cut mine 3.75 x 5.25
then rounded the edges- added some pattern paper
and Cricut die cuts with my sentiment in the center for the
finishing touches!

Finished Project!
