My Bermuda Bay card base measures 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ . It was dry embossed and cut with the Xyron Creatopia.  A piece of Thoroughly Modern designer paper was taped to the top and sanded. White May Arts Satin Ribbon was tied around it.

The image is from Verve’s stamp set Abundant Blessings. It was stamped with Melon Mambo ink, cut out with Circle Nestabilities and first layered on a slightly bigger Chocolate chip circle, then on a Whisper White Scallop Circle. Another piece of Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper was taped to the inside of the card front.

To see the Creatopia cutting and dry embossing, check this video:

I shot this video before receiving a second wheel guide from Xyron. The second wheel guide  helps cutting paper straighter.
