Chalks and Embossing Dies

I’ve been fooling around with some of my old dry embossing thin dies, and seeing how they look after going threw the Cuttlebug.  It was just a matter of using some cardboard shims to get the right amount of pressure, to create the raised effect.  I love how it turned out!  After that I left it in the die and then sponged on some chalk ink.  It gives it a very soft look.


It’s so pretty!  I’ve used one of my favourite color combos pink and green.  The butterflies and lace scalloped borders are both by Martha Stewart.  The embossing panel is by Sizzix.  I left off a sentiment so that the card could be used for multiply occasions. 

Have a great day!
