"Cuttlebug - over the edge" tutorial

A few people have asked how I did it, I know its hard to explain in words sometimes so here are some visuals for you.

Step one - Take image, remember when you trim it you need to leave a gap to be able to emboss. Pop in into the cuttlebug folder so most of the image is sticking out.













Step Two - Place embossing folder into the sandwich as shown. Note the long side of the embossing folder is going with the short side of the blocks.











Step Three - Run though cuttlebug machine













Step Four - Voila! here is your cuttlebugged "over the edge" design. Embellish as required. You could ink the edge, colour with inks or pencils, whatever you wanted.

I'll finish this card off tonight and show you what I have done with it.
