Thinking of you...

Morning everybody,

I have been making more embossing plates using my dies. Here is one more card made using homemade embossing plate. The dies I have used on this green panel is made using Turning New Leaf dies from Papertrey Ink.


I figured out after making a few embossing panels from dies, that embossing is much more defined with solid dies, cut using thicker cardboard. I tried using tissuebox but the embossing is not so good. The toys and games packaging cardboard is perfect. exact thickness to run through cuttlebug without stressing it and gives good impression.
Here is a close up of the card

Thinking of you card
