Make a Wish

A fellow "groupie" was asking about the Cuttlebug Emboss Plus folders so I thought I'd play with a new one I just gave myself for Christmas. Well, you have to take care of Number One once in a while don't you?
I made this as simple as possible, A2 size ( the Perfect Perennials folder is supposed to be A2 but you can see it's really 4 x 6 so I did a slight trim and mounted it on an A2 background.) Dabbbed the embossing with Tim Holtz Faded Jeans distress ink, adhered a few tiny pearls, and used the most adorable Magnolia Fairy for the image in the cutout. The cutout piece went in my ditty box to be used at a later date for something equally exquisite :)

She looks suspiciously like the tooth fairy to me, Maybe some money tucked inside and lovingly placed under a little one's pillow?


  1. Sue this is SO cute!!
    Love your embossing folder! Wonderful design and with the inking you did and the pearls it is delightful :o)
    You're right - this could be the tooth fairy!
    Hugs, Candy

  6. Hey puddle jumpin' friend!! Never apologize for taking care of yourself, sweetie! Glad you got a bit of "rest time" with the holiday craziness going on all around!! Love this little card...I've contemplated buying one of these embossing die cut thingies, er, I mean folders! Thanks for demonstrating a cute way to use it! Tilda Tooth Fairy is perfect for this cutout area!! Absolutely darling!!

  7. Oh, Sue, never apologize for taking some time for yourself and giving yourself the gift of caring! We all have to recharge our batteries! This folder looks like it was just made for this sweet fairy! You've done a beautiful job!

  8. Pretty swirly card Sue -- will have to think about the embossing folders when I am not brain dead - keeping my youngest 4 grandkids for a week and I am slowing down.

  9. Very clever use of a Mini and I love your folder! Great job.
