52 – Episode 3: Mother’s Day Card – Smashing Bottle Caps in the Cuttlebug

It’s almost Mother’s Day, so in this episode of “52” we’re making a Mother’s Day card!  One of my favorite parts of this video is when I show you how to flatten a bottle cap in a Cuttlebug so you can use it as an embellishment on a card or other project.  I hope you enjoy this video!

 In this video, I’m using the Lacey Mom card from SVG Cut’s Cards for Moms svg kit.  I also use Joy’s Life Holiday & Everyday Occasions stamps, a Scotch ATG gunEcho Park This & That Graceful paperXyron 150 “X”, 1″ Circle Epoxy Stickers and Bottle Caps.

  1. What a great video, Joy! That card turned out perfectly! Love the tips on the bottlecap embellishment! Thanks so much! I missed the necklace video somehow, so going back to watch that too!

  2. Here’s a tip for you Joy! After you pull your strip of adhesive out of the Xyron 150 X, leave the top clear sheet in place and rub your finger around the edges of piece you are adding the adhesive to. When you do that, it helps to break the extra adhesive around the edges so when you take it off the backing strip you don’t get a lot of “extra” adhesive that you have to rub off! Hope this made sense!

      What a great tip! Thank you! That will make my creations look so much better. I’ve got to remember to do this next time. I’m always so eager to tear off that clear sheet! LOL!

    Hi Joy, Thanks for a great video! I am now ready to smash some bottle caps! Also have a tip for you! When using your STG gun and you don’t get the paper on straight or the way you want it, you can take dental floss and carefully remove the piece! Guess how I know that! 🙂

    1. Kraftychic,
      You’re a genius! Thank you so much for that tip about dental floss. I will try that FOR SURE!

  4. Wonderful card. I like the shape and papers and the bottlecap makes it extra special.
