Ok now did you know you can create your own cuttlebug embossing templates with you cricut? How cool is that? Here are a few simple instrustions . . .
Take what ever cut you wish to turn into an embossing template and cut it into a piece of chipboard. You can use any shape and size just be sure that the chipboard is the appropriate size to fit in your cuttlebug. You can repeat one shape over and over on the chipboard to create a pattern or use a single image. Once you have cut your desired shapes sandwich the chipboard with your cardstock and the appropriate cuttlebug plates. Once you run it through your machine you should see a perfect embossed image. The thicker your chipboard the deeper the embossing.
Go on give it a try!
