Vintage vogue embossing cards

As a demo we are lucky enough to get to preorder a month before a mini or a main catalogue is launched, and given that I love the Vintage Vogue stamp set I could not resist buying the embossing folder for my Big Shot.
A quick play on Sunday night saw me making these 2 very simple cards. All you need is a few daubers and some ink pads and of course the embossing folder.
Many people ask me do I really need a Big Shot? Well no a cuttlebug is fine but if you want the Mercedes of embossing and die cutting machines then yes buy a Big Shot. It cuts and embosses 50 different types of product (cork, shrinky dinks, vellum, cardstock, DSP just to name a few).
Don't get me wrong a cuttlebug is a great little machne but with the Big Shot my poor tired brain doesn't have to think A,B,B plate or is it A,B and C as there is a tab system on the adaptor plate that comes with your Big Shot that tells you what you need.


  1. awesome samples Tee Jay! it's a great folder eh!

  2. these are gorgeous Tee Jay, my embossing folder is on back order:(

  3. Nice Samples! Thanks for sharing! I wanted to add to the coolness of the Big Shot....Did you know it will go through 8 layers of fabric at once as well. So if you're a quilter....the Big shot is a *must*. Blessings-Tana Conley
