Cuttlebug Matchbook Card


I decided to join in the Cuttlebug Challenge again this week which is to use vellum in your Easter creation. I just came upon a stash of long-forgotten vellum so I figured I would use it in this Easter egg card I wanted to make. The border embossing folders make great Easter eggs. Each strip is its own folder so you can design the eggs differently. With an oval punch, it's super easy.
I did emboss the vellum on the outside of the card, too. I love the way the vellum crackles when you run it through the CB.
Below is the inside of the matchbook card.

Louise, this is gorgeous and I love the idea of the match book, very cute! The embossing of the eggs looks fabulous, it's great how you can mix and match the border folders, which you've done to great effect here! Thanks for playing along with us this week at http://www.cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/, and digging out your vellum!
