Embossed Frame

It is difficult to see in this photo but this card has a Frame created using the Petals A Plenty Embossing folder.  This is a great technique if you want a pattern around your stamped image.  You need to create a template from some thick cardboard.  I created a frame with an inch thick border to fit the same size as the actual embossing folder.  To run this through the BigShot you need to have all of the tabs closed.  You then place your cardstock into the embossing folder as usual.  Place your frame template on top of the closed embossing folder, then a cutting pad and run it through.  This will give you a border of the embossed image with an unembossed area in the middle.  Hard to describe but very nifty!

Cardstock:  Concord Crush, Vwery Vanilla
Ink:  Concord Crush
Stamps: Style Beautiful
Accessories:  Pearls, Petals A Plenty Embossing Folder, Champagne Shimmer Paint
