Using a Die to emboss


Dawn here to share the idea of using Dies to emboss.  It's a great way to stretch your dies.

 I used a Marianne's oval die together with an embossing mat and instead of cutting, used the die to emboss the oval before using the outside die to cut it out.   I had printed the daffodil image from The Stamping Boutique prior to doing my embossing and die cutting.  Did some matting before adding to my card base and adding a sentiment from Altenew. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Please be sure to join our embossing challenge this month... just a couple of days left.
