Birthday card for a neighbor girl

My MIL asked me to make a card for a neighbor's daughter for her birthday. She told me that this girl's favorite colors are orange and pink ... and she is a girly-girl. So I figured I would make a card with a 3D dress.
So I made a skirt using tulle the same way you would making a real tutu. I used orange and pink (though it's harder to see pink on this picture). Then I cut out a tank top, added glitter and attached them together... For the background I used Sizzix embossing folder. I always wanted to try sizzix embossing folders (because of the designs they have that are different from Cuttlebug), but I only have a cuttlebug and didn't want to spend money on another machine. I searched everywhere, but could not find any information online to see if I could use the Sizzix embossing folders in a Cuttlebug. Anyway, I decided to just take a chance and buy them....
Well, the bottom line - yes, you can use Sizzix embossing folders in your Cuttlebug machine, but you have to use a much-much thicker card stock (other wise it will rip).
Have you girls used Sizzix folders? Would love to hear what you have to say!


  1. That was a brave thing you did...lol I'm glad though because I have wondered the same thing and now we all know. Really cute card...love the tulle idea...

  2. This is so pretty- love the tulle skirt! Yes, I use Sizzix in my Cuttlebug- there is a chart on SCS with the sandwiches.......

  3. I have a Cuttlebug and Big Shot, but the BS is a very new toy for me. I use everyone's everything in my loot, lol! I have never seen this folder and totally love it!!!

    Sizzix makes the most awesome dies and folders and I use them all in the Cuttlebug!! Easy peasy!
