First, emboss a piece of cardstock with your Cuttlebug, Big Shot, or whatever embossing tool you use. I embossed with the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug folder and the Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder.
Next, cut out selected areas using a hobby knife or punch. I used my Cropadile Big Bite to make varied size holes on the Spots and Dots sample. Then I used a hobby knife to cut out different shapes in the Floral Fantasy sample.
Lastly, I adhered paper to the back of each sample and let the color peek through the parts I cut. I put a piece of multicolored stripes behind the Spots and Dots. I pieced several small pieces of coordinating paper behind the Floral Fantasy to get the exact color I wanted exactly where I wanted it.
Hope you enjoyed this quick and easy tip. It can really transform the way you use your embossed paper.
May all your crafting dreams come true!
