Embossing With Framelits - Using Floral Frames - Video Tutorial

Good Morning :o) I am still playing with the Floral Frames bundle .... and I'm not stopping just yet. I absolutely love these products!

In my last Blog post, I showed you a card I had created using one of the new Big Shot Embossing Mats. You can see it HERE. I used the Mat to emboss the shape and detail of an Edgelit into my card. I used the thin Blue Mat to do this.

When creating today's cards, I used the other Mat - the thick Gray one. You use this one when you cut out the shape of a framelit or thinlit and then emboss with it afterwards. 

I created the Video (below) showing you how to use each of these Mats. 

This was my original card. The paper used for the background is from the Tranquil Textures paper pack. 

The sentiment is from the Floral Frames stamp set. Everything else (apart from the little bird) was created using the coordinating Foliage Frame framelit dies and the Embossing Mats.

This is the actual card I created in the Video. I changed a few things from the original and love how it came out :o)

The little bird comes from the Birds & Blooms thinlits dies ... he was the perfect size for my card :o)

Here is the Video ....
