Dinosaur waterfall card using fiskars texture plates in the cuttlebug

dang- that's a LONG title!  Anywhoooo....MONTHS ago I bought a set of fiskars texture plates (which are bigger and cheaper than cuttlebug folders AND they are double sided) because I heard you could use them in the cuttlebug. Well, yes, you can... but for whatever reason I had trouble making it work back then.  So, here is the sandwich recipe to make it work correctly but you need to have a pair of Spellbinders Enlarged Embossing Pads (latex rubber sheets) which I found on ebay for $6. RECIPE: A Plate, rubber pad, cardstock, texture plate obviously with the texture you want facing the cardstock, 2nd rubber pad and finally the B plate.  TADAA!  The embossing with the fiskars plates isn't as deep as the cuttlebug, but it still looks great.  SO, this little dinosaur was made using the "leather" fiskars plate.  The entire card file came from from the Waterfall Cards kit.  When his tail is pulled, his mouth opens!  It was fun to put together and the kid who receives it will probably have fun with it, too:)
