Wednesday Be Inspired

Do you know what today is? WEDNESDAY! And that means a new Cuttlebug Challenge. This week's theme is Wedding/Anniversary + Cuttlebug. I can't wait to see your cute projects for this challenge! We were lucky enough to be sponsored by Creative Cuts and More, check out their store and amazing die-cut creations!
This week I had the opportunity to use one of their purse boxes. It is just the sweetest little thing and I LOVED altering it.

I made a "Love & Marriage" card, great to attach to a wedding or anniversary gift. All I did was run the front of the die-cut thru my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. I then lightly ran MS ink over the top of the embossed dots. I then added a My Mind's Eye trim that I scalloped with a Martha Stewart punch. I used a Melissa Frances rub-on. I then used Paper Studio pearls to border my paper and 2 Making Memories pins. I think the pearls look great with the white embossing of Swiss Dots. And I added a MS ribbon for a bow at the top. Now, all you have to do is add a sentiment to the inside, a note of congrats, etc. and you're all set with the cutest altered card ever!
And check out the Diecut Diva, the great blog showcasing the Creative Cuts & More DT's work. Now I want to see your Wedding/Anniversary creations using the Cuttlebug! And don't forget to check out the fabulous work from the Cuttlebug Challenge DT!
