Magnolia Rub-Ons Sending Love & Hugs
by Angie Cimbalo

Special hugs main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today using the newly release Magnolia Rub-Ons.  My first card uses the rub-ons with the Marvelous Magnolia 3D embossing folder with the 3 coordinating cutting dies.  I first dry embossed the white card panel and then added the rub-on on top of it.  Next I cut all three flowers out with the coordinating dies.  After that, the embossing was kind of flattened out, so I carefully laid all 3 cut flowers into the embossing folder right on top of the flower in the folder and re-ran it through my die cutting machine to get a nice deep embossed look.  To get more dimension, I cut a plain white one of each of the three flowers and glued the rub-on cut one to it so it would appear higher and thicker on the card front.  

The frame for it was made with 2 of the Curved Cap Pinpoint Layers Dies 94646.  First I took the mirror card stock and embossed it with the same embossing folder, then cut the frame uses 2 of the curved cap dies at the same time.  This cut a real thin pretty frame for my flowers.  I tucked the flowered in the frame and then added the sentiment from All the Happiness CL5265, and some Christmas jewels.  Here's one last look at card #1:

I also created a 2nd card with the rub-ons, and the curved cap dies.

This time I used the curved cap dies to create my shaped card base.  I did this by die cutting a folded A2 card base but made sure the top of the die hangs off the edge of the card so it doesn't cut the top part of the card.  After it was cut I added the rub-ons directly onto the card front and then added the sentiment from the Berry Wreath stamp set, that was heat embossed in white on black card stock.  Here's one last look:
