Just Rite Wedding Cards

Edit: Tracey has this dilemma: I have just invested my life savings in Nestabilities and can't quite seem to get the deep embossing that you get. Do you have a secret? I use the Cuttlebug is it possible my sandwich is not right or maybe the cardstock?

Here's the sandwich you need to use with your Cuttlebug, Tracey(from bottom to top). You'll get deeply embossed dies:

For cutting: A plate, C plate, die (cutting edge up), cardstock, B plate....run through machine.

For embossing: A plate, 3 pieces cardstock (I use Papertrey thickness cut to the size of 3 A2 cards), B plate, die (cutting edge up) with cut cardstock die inside, tan Spellbinders mat, B plate..run through machine.

More wedding cards comin' right up! I've been labeling all my wedding cards posts with *Wedding*. So if you ever need ideas for a specific type of card, simply go to the Labels link at the left and it will list all of my categories. Inspiration at your fingertips. Today I'm using some stamps from the Just Rite set called Weddings Ensemble. There are 6 border images and 6 center images to mix and match for all your wedding needs. For my base card, I used some beautiful Webster's Pages card stock along with some embossed papers that were in my stash. I used Papertrey ribbons and some pearls to finish off the simple cards.
For the main images, I stamped my images and then cut and embossed them using Spellbinder's Circle Nestabilities Die Templates. To add a little color, I used my Copic Airbrush System while the dies were still in place.

Tip: To keep the Nestabilities in perfect place while running through your cutting machine, simply adhere a little piece of clear tape over the edge of the die and your paper. This will secure your die to your card stock and will prevent any slipping.

I love everything you do & stalk your blog very often! I have a question for you. I have just invested my life savings in Nestabilities and can't quite seem to get the deep embossing that you get. Do you have a secret? I use the Cuttlebug is it possible my sandwich is not right or maybe the cardstock? Thanks for your constant inspiration!

Beautiful cards!! I am failng miserably with my New Years Change...not to buy paper until I use a GOOD portion of what I have.

I use Scotch brand Repostionable Tape with my Nestabilities and it works perfectly, HTH someone.
