Framelit Embossing

Today's card is using one of the Framelits dies to emboss rather than to cut. This is done by placing the cardstock on the non-cutting side of the die and using a silicone mat along with the die cutting machine plate(s). As all machines are different you do have to play around with this to make sure you get the sandwich right but it is worth it in the end, so I suggest you use some scrap card to start with and once you get the sandwich right, write it down because, if you're anything like me, you'll never remember next time!
After embossing a piece of Whisper White I then used the negative part of the diecut as a mask and stamped the image from Wedding Sweet in Rich Razzleberry. Perfect Plum and Rich Razzleberry butterflies, cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, were scattered around and some Perfect Pearls added to their bodies. The sentiment was punched with the Modern label punch and layered onto a Rich Razzleberry label which is cut with one of the Lots of Tags dies. This was layered onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock before glueing onto a card blank.
