  1. This is awesome! I love the embossing with the Cricut. I'm going to go and try it right now. Love it!!!! Thanks

  2. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE this idea!
    FYI, if you use masking tape, it will not damage your paper, like scotch tape can.

  3. hey pretty cool I was wondering how this worked! :)
    I just had my blade dull after 8 months of use! Nancy (mini_nans) on instagram told me about this embossing method and I wanted to give it a try. So glad I wasa able to catch this video! The cricut just keeps amazing me!! Jossie

  4. Thanks for sharing - that was awsome!

  5. sooooooooo cool. So going to try this.

  6. This is so neat! Would it be possible tothen cut it out with the blackout image out instead of using scissors? I'm not that good at all the features, but it makes sense to me if it can be done.

  7. this is the coolest thing ever!!! I will have to try it on my imagine.
