True Friend


An elegant design for my brother-in-law's upcoming wedding... This was inspired by the cover of the SU holiday mini catalog. I am probably one of the last people in the stamping world to use any of the Cuttlebug embossing folders - lol! But when I saw the cool use of it for waves by Taylor and Debbie, I couldn't resist. (And I have a wave card of my own to share with you soon too!) Now since I wanted just the one embossing folder I couldn't justify the cost of buying the actual Cuttlebug machine, so I used the rolling pin method that I saw on several blogs a while back and was pleased with the results!
EDITED: Check out the rolling pin tutorial for the Cuttlebug Embossing folders at All That Scraps -- > here!
