Anna Griffin Climbing Rose Cuttlebug Folder

Have you caught the latest wave in Cuttlebug folders?  It's a series of folders created by Anna Griffin.  HSN is selling an exclusive Anna Griffin gold and cream Cuttlebug.  With the Cuttlebug, you also receive a set of Anna Griffin new Cuttlebug folders to go along with it. In addition, you can order auto ship that automatically send you  3 more future shipments of Anna Griffin Cuttlebug folders.  How awesome is that!  Well, I received one of the new folders this past weekend at Circle Mania II and just had to create with it as soon as I could.  Here is what I came up with.

Materials Used:
  • Cricut Cartridge Preserves
  • Anna Griffin Cuttlebug folder Climbing Rose
  • Anna Griffin All Occasion Card Making Kit
  • Anna Griffin Carmen Collection cardstock
  • Liquid Pearls in Buttercup
The card was super simple to make.  First, I selected matching cardstock papers.  I started with the yellow from the Carmen collection and was inspired to create a pineapple to go along with it. Next, I selected the Climbing Rose folder because it matched the pattern on the cardstock.  I embossed it before layering it onto my patterned green card base.  Next, I embossed the matching border onto a   1 1/2"  white cardstock strip and adhered it to the card.  I cut and assembled the pineapple from the Cricut cartridge Preserves and added it to my card, just layering the white border strip.  I selected two stickers from Anna's All Occasion Card Making kit and added those to the bottom of each side of the pineapple.  I stamped the sentiment "Welcome" and layered it onto a tag and onto to the card.  I used Liquid Pearls in buttercup to add some subtle bling to the flower middle and sentiment tag.  Super quick card with a lot of texture.  I can't wait to use my other Anna Griffin folders!
