ID: MC July 17 - Easel 3D Orchids - ECD Remember - Remember That The Earth - Just a Note card
size: 7"w x 5"h (easel closed)

Created: July 24, 2017

I've been creating electronic files to cut with my Silhouette Cameo for my stamp images for years... Then all of a sudden I said why not do it for some of my embossing frames... This is the result for Cuttlebug's "Winter Frolic" set

I'm using an A Way With Words die "Remember" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design

("Remember That The Earth..." 8pce set); ("10 Tiny Tag Sentiments" 10pce set)


Scored and folded my Lavender Bazzill monochromatic  cardstock to create the easel. Cut another piece same size as front and adhered. 

Created and electronically cut my frame (Cuttlebug "Winter Frolic" set), then ran it through my embossing machine (see pics and directions below). Direct to paper with large Distress pads "Crushed Olive" all over, then with "Forest Moss" here and there. 

Stamped the Penny Black "Gentle Whisper" onto white cardstock using Distress pads in various green's, omitting inking the flower section, misted with water and stamped. Cut the ends of the leaves so they would fall outside the frame. Adhered to frame then adhered to front.

Cut the petals of the orchid in 3 sizes and instead of stamping the pattern I used markers and stamp pads to color. Misted the back of the cardstock of the flowers top layer and crimped the edge, then direct to paper with the pad on the high points. Tooled the other elements. Assembled and adhered to front.

Die cut the ladybug (Elizabeth Craft Designs) colored and adhered to front.

Die cut the word "Remember" from a chocolate brown cardstock and adhered to front.


On the floor: Stamped the quote onto white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut using Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Rectangles", moving the die to create the size I wanted. Sponged some crushed olive around the edges. Adhered to floor.

Cut a 1/2" strip of the lavender cardstock the length of the card, scored and folded it in half and adhered to the floor to act as my stopper. 

Had a spare orchid so adhered it to the floor, adding a lacy pearl ribbon for the stem, a rhinestone flourish and some green rhinestone teardrops for leaves.

Stamped the "Just a Note" 3 times along the bottom using the black and clear embossed.




These steps are for the Grace's Frame but it's exactly the same steps for the winter Frolic folder.

Step 1: Ran white cardstock through my embossing machine with the embossing folder. Trimmed down close to edge of embossed area. Used a pencil to outline the inner edge, applying good pressure for a dark line. Scanned it and opened it in my photo editing program - I use Photo Shop Elements 7.

Step 2: Use your fill bucket to put black into the opening and around the edge, adding with a paintbrush or line filler where it is still the pencil line.

Step 3: Invert the image. You now have what will be imported into your electronic cutting software.

I prefer using SCAL software with my Cameo machine. I find it more intuitive... Imported into the software, it is exactly the size as your embossing folder, no resizing needed. But double check with whatever software you're using - it should be correct...

Here I've clicked on the wrench icon, then on the drop down "style" menu and clicked on "Shadow". Left it the original size of .050 

Cut from white cardstock. and ran through my embossing machine.
