Fall To Layout #38 Happy Birthday

I decided to use Natahsa's sketch to make a masculine birthday card. I used PaperTrey's Father Knows Best set and the sentiment is from PaperTrey's Around and About Sentiments. To keep it masculine looking, I embossed about 2/3rds of the Vintage Creme card front with the Argyle embossing folder . I then scored two lines right below the Argyle embossing and then stamped the sentiment and embossed another two lines below the sentiment. I would have liked to use a brown wooden button but I didn't have one so I went with the spiral clip instead. Supplies: Stamps - PaperTrey; Ink - Versamagic Chalk Inks; Paper - PaperTrey; Misc - Nestabilities, spiral clip, dimensionals, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Scor-pal.

Harriet,
I just love this card, but I can't figure it out...
How did you put the card into the Cuttlebug folder to emboss just 2/3 of the top of the card?
Thanks!
