|I just found out that this card has recently been Published in Scrap & Stamp Arts Magazine!|
I wanted to make my husband Sandy a very special birthday card.
Dreamweaver Stencil - LG665
Stamping Detail -Rubber Mat (not the same as thin mat used for cutting with Spellbinder dies)
Marvy watercolor markers
Direction for using the heavier larger Dreamweaver Stencils in the Cuttlebug:
1. Place stencil on acrylic plate using removable tape to hold in place. I bought new "B" plate and reserve them just for embossing. A set of 2 were on sale recently at Michaels. My old ones were very warped and might have ruined both my machine and the new stencils.
2. Place paper over the stencil and tape using removable tape.
3. Place Stamping Details rubber mat on top of your paper.
4. Place scrap paper as a shim on top of rubber mat.
5. Sandwich with the other "B" plate.
6.Place on the thick spacer plate.
7. Run through and emboss!
