Floral Frames - Embossing With Framelits

Hi There :o)

Have you spotted the Big Shot Embossing Mats (146327) in the Annual Catalogue (UK page 221)? Did you wonder what they were for? I have used them for today's card :o)

This set consists of 3 pieces. The Impressions Pad (white), a thin Silicone Mat (Blue) and a thick Silicone Mat (Grey). 

You use the Impressions Pad together with one of the Silicone mats. Which one to use depends on what you want to do. If you want to emboss a shape after it has been die cut, then you will use the Grey mat. If you just want to emboss a framelit/thinlit shape into cardstock, then you use the Blue mat. 

I used one of the beautiful Delicate Lace Edgelits dies for my card. I didn't want to cut, just emboss, so I used the Blue Silicone mat in my Big Shot sandwich. 

My sandwich was as follows:

Big Shot Platform (without the adapter for thin dies)
Cutting Pad
Die - cutting edge UP
Blue Silicone Mat
White Impressions Pad

I positioned the die onto my card and taped it in place before turning it upside down to run it through the machine.

If you would like to see this in 'action', I will be posting a Video showing you how I create another card on Friday this week. This will also show you exactly how I created the background panel for this card. After Friday, I will add a direct link to the Video post  HERE :o)

The paper used here comes from the Share What You Love Specialty paper pack. This has a gorgeous pearlised finish on most of the papers.

The lovely frame is from the Floral Frames bundle. I coloured it using our Stampin' Blends alcohol markers after stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The sentiment was stamped using Blackberry Bliss ink and cut out with one of the Layering Ovals framelits. I used my Blackberry Bliss Marker to go around the edge of this mat to make it 'pop' a little more .... you could use the Blends Marker to do this as well.
