Time to add some dimension to your projects!

Today I am sharing another fun project using the Cricut Explore and also I am using the Cuttlebug. It is fun to add some dimension to your scrap pages or cards using this fun machine!  Did you know that you could use other dies and folders out on the market with your Cuttlebug?  A friend of Exploring Cricut and More, Ben Adler has shared some valuable information with us and also has a pdf print out for you too!  I will be giving you all the information after I share this card I made today.  Monday was my baby granddaughters 6th birthday and of course, both my precious granddaughters are Princesses to us.  I used the Princess Castle card file from SVG Cuts Box cards set.  This was a quick and easy card.  Now the bad thing was, I forgot to take a picture of her card, so I made another one lol. 
I like adding dimension so I used my Cuttlebug and as you can see I am using the original one!
I did the pieces in a chevron zig zag pattern and then I inked the edges with a darker color.
This is the folder I used and it is a Sizzix from Stampin Up so that you can see what I used.
This is the finished card adding a little bling for some added decoration.  Ben has shared this wonderful and detailed sandwich technique by going to  He has step by step with photos to show you.  He has also sent me the PDF to print out  Big shout out and thanks for sharing with us today!!!
