what i tried to do to the edge of the circle really did not come out as good as i had hoped.
I think this is way better. I wanted to keep the color combination that I had used before and only use some of the elements, sometimes is all about knowing when to stop right? I am also submitting this card to The Around The House Challenge over at Moxie Fab World. My around the house item is rice. Somehow I got in my head that it would be awesome to have that rice texture in cardstock so I made my own embossing plate. I first run a few lines of double sided adhesive to a piece cereal box then adhered painters tape onto that piece of cereal box with the sticky side up, then poured some rice, spread it nice and even and run it through the cuttlebug only using the A+ C plate then the rice plate facing up, them the cardstock and finally that little rubber mat and run it through the cuttlebug and you will get what you see above. The picture doesn't really show how nice it really looks. I really like how it turned out and it was so much fun to make.
Update: I was asked if i had rice kernels everywhere, even though you used adhesive? I didn't have any kernels come off. I really made sure everything was stuck pretty good and had none hanging of the edges before i put it through the cuttlebug. In fact I just went to flick it, even put it upside down, flick it again and none came off. Thanks for your comments ladies. 02/01/2012
