Did you know, that a cutting die isn´t just a cutting die - but can also be an embossing tool?!
Though I knew it, I never tried it myself - until now....
1) For today´s project I cut red cirlce-strips with a border die and adhered it to my card.
2) Then I put my silicone shim UNDER my card so that the die would not cut through the card but only leave an impression... you have to play a little with the correct thickness of your stack of plates and shims depending on what embossing machine you have.
And this is my result:
An aunt of mine will need a surgery in about 2 weeks and I need a card to ensure her, that we think of her and care about her....
She was the one who taught me to sew, when I was a child - so every time I think of her, I have a sewing or seamstress theme in mind...
This is what I came up with:
I´d like to participate in these challenges with my card:
Papertrey Ink´s Make it Monday Challenge (using border dies for creating a background)
Thanks for visiting me today!
