I got my big shot yesterday and my die today for my chandeliers, look at what I played around with (you got it, EMBOSSED ENVELOPES WITH A CHANDELIER!!)
back…. (yep it’s upside down lmao!!!) i’ll work on positioning next time!!
i also did a uber quickie mockup of the stamps on a note card to see if i’d like them on our invite, i think they are pretty decent but i may just like a printed black version of the chandelier because i thnk it would be darker (of course my ink pad is nearly out of ink, so i’ll reserve that comment until later lol) and against the proper cardstock (a blue with black ink or a blue with silver ink) but i like how the jewels look.

I love that! I think maybe I’d only do the envelope embossing on the front,tho. Crystals are great!

@ccrane: i love it!! i love the embossing as well!!
@jabride: i actually saw it on a very expensive invitation suite and loved it…
@smyley:the embossing goes through both sides I would have to put a special plate or something between it to make it go only on that side or a few in there (i am still working the kinks out, I thought it was a great surprise for when the guests turn over the envelopes. I am also having their names in calligraphy. these aren’t the envelopes that I am using, just an example.. i have no idea what type of papers we’re using…

@mrs. moni: i was pleasantly surprised, that was my very first try with the machine and that spit out, i cannot wait to do more things, you know?

Oooh they look great!
Is there any way that you could stick the plate inside the envelope so it only embosses the front part though? I kind of agree with smyley. If not, could you cut your own envelopes using the cricut and then emboss then glue together? (Bonus: it’s usually cheaper than buying envelopes, because paper’s cheaper, but it takes more time)

@labor: i don’t have a cricut, if I did it i would use the big shot to do it. i am sure that i could only emboss the front if i tried, but i like both sides embossed :o)… i think it’s a fun surprise on the second side.
@bluebutterfly:i love it!! definitely check it out there are plenty of tutorials on you tube for it and i actually looked at them versus the cuttlebug before i purchased it.
