I just got a Cuttlebug & am having tons of fun with it. I mainly got it for the embossing since I have a Cricut to do all my die-cutting. This is the first card I've made using it. I used the Happy Birthday embossing folder for the background and used walnut distressing ink over the raised words to highlight it. The layered square tag was made by embossing vellum with one of the exclusive embossing folders that came with the machine. The patterned paper came from a stack that I got for $5 at Big Lots & I finished it off with some black ribbon & snaps. It was fast & easy to do with the help of my newest bug!
