I do like a bit of embossing!

Hello friends

I'm revisiting a favourite tip/technique of mine today, 
selective embossing with Spellbinders® M-Bossabilities .

If you have a Wilkinsons near you grab a packet of these tags.
They are really good quality thick card and just begging to be altered.
If not, you can of course die cut your own hearts.

 I've used one of the tags with Enchanted M-Bossabilities  folder.

 I placed just half of the heart tag inside the folder, the other part sticking out the bottom 
of the folder.  I didn't even remove the twine..speedy!

 The sandwich for Grand Calibur is base plate, your folder with medium inside 
and Raspberry Spacer Plate.
The end result is lovely. 
You could decorate the blank area or it is a good place to write your message.

 And this one you've probably seen me do many times before but...just in case...
Use the same selective embossing technique with envelopes.
I've inserted just the flap inside the folder.

It really dresses them up. 

 And again with an envelope, I've inserted it into the folder diagonally for a different finish.
This is Flora folder.

Three ideas for selective embossing. 

Take care friends, I'm back soon - cake still isn't iced!

  13. I love embossing folders too. They are a very versatile tool which enables you to add texture and dimension to boring old bits of card.
    Good luck with the cake icing.

    Hope you manage to get the cake iced!

  15. What a clever idea. I never think to partially emboss something and I was the lucky winner of the top embossing folder!
