2 Sketches 4 You - Sketch #17

Well, this is my first go at a template from the 2 Sketches 4 You blog and I’m pleased to say that it was quite a straight forward one to follow.

Uncomplicated is good, right!

I’ve used the Happy Birthday and Birthday Cake dies that I brought from the Ellison’s sale, and also my square Nestabilities.
I’ve been having a go at embossing with the Nesties but at the moment I don’t seem to be having a lot of luck. It is leaving an impression but not a very sharp one, so I don’t think I have the sandwich quite right for my Cuttlebug.
If anyone has any advice on this it’ll be gratefully received I can tell you, because it’s getting very frustrating.

Anyway, here’s my card.

Card – Craft Creations
Patterned Papers – K & Co, Studio K
Inks – Ranger Distress Ink (Faded Jeans)
Dies – Sizzlets (Birthday Cake & Happy Birthday), Spellbinder (Nestabilities)
Pens- Staedtler Triplus Fineliner (Black)

Other BitsTiny Star Gem
Diamond Glaze

Great card.
I use the A plate, B plate, 3 pieces of CS, the nestie with the cut paper in it and than the tan mat and top it with the B plate. This works for me. Good luck.

Terrific card, love the color scheme.

I've been having the same problem embossing with mine - I'll be keeping an eye on your comments.

Just awesome! I struggle with making cards that aren't too girly. You did a great one!
