Embossing in cutting dies

What? Embossing what? In cutting dies? 

Ok, I´ll clear up the mystery: did you notice this detail on my last card?

I used a Spellbinders cutting die and embossed the die cut while it was still in the die. 
Does everybody know how to do this without harming the embossing folder? 
If not, here´s how:

1) die cut any shape you like

2) turn it over and lay it onto the flat side of an embossing folder

3) put a silicone shim and an embossing plate on top - leave the embossing folder OPEN!

4) walk it through the embossing machine - turn it over and voilá!

A perfectly embossed piece with a small frame all around thanks to the cutting die!

As I´m NO fan of wintertime, I decided to use it for a very bright-colored card...
(Linda, thanks again for the very beautiful pin(s)!!!)

I´d like to enter it into these challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today!
