Has anyone used their cuttlebug to create an embossed border around the outside of the invitiation?
I love the classic feel of these invites:
I don’t currently own a cuttlebug, but if I can create an embossed border easily, I will definitely need to invest in one.

I love my cuttlebug, but it does have some limitations. It can only emboss to a certain size (5×7 I believe), and you’re sort of stuck with the folders that are offered. That being said, MandaMack has bought this thing that lets you create your own embossing folder (why didn’t that exist a year ago?!) with your Cricut and I’m anxiously awaiting her review!!! You can DIY them with your Cricut and corkboard, but I haven’t tried it myself yet.

that would be hard to do unless you make the actual text portions of your invites really small. The border portion would have to be 4.5×5.5. So your invites would be pretty small. Look up Mrs. Sewing. She used a cuttlebug for her invites, but it wasn’t a full border.
I used a cuttlebug for mine, but it was more for embellishments like envelope seals. I used them for the reception placecards too.
And there is a thing that lets you create your own embossing folders (i bought it at Joann fabrics), but it is still the small A2 size and won’t let you make a huge embossed border
