Salutations! {love that line in "Charlotte's Web"}

I got a birthday boy card for yinz today. ;)

For Kraftin' Kimmie, SSIC, Hands Full of Stamps, Danni's Dreams, Twisted Sketches and Pile It On...

 Supplies: SU! white, chipboard, Bazzil cardstock, scrap paper, gems, ribbon, Sugarloaf stamp, Scrappy Cat orange

This is actually the first card I've made using the Cuttlebug I got last Christmas. WAIT! Before you rip out my guts for misusing such a wonderful little machine, I promise you you'll be seeing more cards made using it after Christmas. I'll be getting Nestabilities Label Eight, and I'm sooo excited!!

Now that that's all out and done with, I'm gonna tell you a little bit about one of my now favorite papercrafting supplies; chipboard! I use on almost all my card, whether you see it or not. Sometimes it's right in front of your face, like the above, and sometimes I sneak it in by using it to pop up embellishments, also used above; cut to make the lions mane and end of tail pop out. I use it to make embellishments stand out so I don't have to buy those little foamie pads, which are expensive around here. I get it practically free; how, you may ask? Well, you can find it on the back of art paper pads, scrapbooking paper pads - lots of stuff - and for free!...{well, kinda ;) }

Oh, and one more thing; I was featured as one of the highlighted cards over at Little Red Wagon for this card...

Thanks ladies! :)
