I ran Craft cardstock base card through the branch Cuttlebug folder and highlighted it with green ink, just straight from the pad. Then I sponged the edges of the base with the same green and used my Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper to round all the corners. I do love that little thing. I was thinking after I bought it maybe I shouldn't have but it does a great job and punches through the 2 layers of a base like butter.
I stamped the Koala bear in black Distress ink on another piece of Craft CS. It stays wet long enough to emboss. Sprinkled with fine black embossing powder. Then I got a little cup with some fresh bleach in and painted the bleach on the image to bleach the area so I could color it in. I used my Prisma Color pencils and blended with Gamsol. I cut a mask and stamped the leaves over the image that I cut out with a nestie and distressed the edges with my distress tool...aka thread cutter and embossed the greeting in black too. Then just layered on black and a nice brown and added buttons.
