Bugged thank you..

Hi all, hope everyone had a fab bank holiday weekend!

This is a 'thank you card' using Cuttlebug embossing folders, I have 'buffed' (with a nail file) the top layer of paper over the embossing to make it appear white. The background is stamped using versamark ink.
and hey - NO pink!
I'm now going to put the kettle on and sit and read Scrapbook Inspirations, which arrived in the post today (didn't finish work until 6 pm today - doing holiday cover!)

Wow what a lovely card Sue and great colours! Love the buffing idea, will try that one when I get the cuttlebug out tonight at Craft Club. Must take a nail file with me ;o).

This is an amazing card Sue. I love the embossing and will have a go at buffing the top now - it looks really good.
Your pink was rubbing off on me - now you do a card with no pink!!! lol

Great idea Sue. I've not got into the bug folders with words cos I couldn't see how to make them stand out except with ink. Inspirational. Thanks K

what a really impressive way of making quick thank you cards - very effective with the nail file technique!
