New card using the Cuttlebug!
Tattered florals tutorial on Youtube
The inside button of the flower is just a thin strip of light cardstock cut about a quarter inch wide and a couple inches long. I then cut thin strips along the length of it, rolled it up around a toothpick, glued the end to the roll and then glued this tube to my flower. Once the glue was dry I pressed back the little cuts to make the middle of the flower.
The leaf is a new die by Cottage Cutz. I bought a butterfly die and leaf die because they are very pretty. I went to their website and watched a video on how to use them in my Cuttlebug. I tried paper, thin cardstock and thick cardstock...all with the same results, the die does not cut through or evenly. I tried researching my problem but I just can't find much info on the die itself. Just to make sure, I tested some of my Spellbinders and Sizzlets to make sure it wasn't my Cuttlebug, it wasn't. First time I have so much trouble cutting with a die in my Cuttlebug...never had a problem before.
Anyways, I really like how it all came together, thanks for visiting.
