I had this image sitting staring at me for months.
I just could not come up with a card for it.
Check out the embossed leaves they are almost the same as the stamped leaves.
I found this fiskars embossing plate and ran it through my cuttlebug!
I love this machine!!!!!!
I actually bought it to do all of my other fiskars plates (24) because it hurt my wrist to do them by hand.
The fiskar plates are also less money than the cuttlebug, 4 images for 6.50 (canada price).
Don't get me wrong the cuttlebug embossing folders are the bomb and have great depth and I have many of them...LOL but I am a collector of all things embossed.

That is so funny!!! I bought my Cuttlebug for the very same reason! The Fiskar plates are very cool...I like them b/c they were less expensive AND they are larger than the Cuttlebug ones. Today I went to the craft store and bought some blank stenciling plastic and wondered if I could heat it up and make a reverse image of the plate to press into the paper like the Cuttlebug...I'll let you know! That would be pretty cool, too! However, the fun foam works great to help make that impression! Good job...great card!!!
PS-I've since tried to melt the plastic to make a reverse image and it doesn't work. That's ok...the foam is cheap!
