This week's technique comes to us from Heather Nichols - Embossing with Dies. I was working on an Easter card when the post went up. I was going to cut one of Heather's Fillable Frames, #1 to be specific, and thought I'd try the technique. I must admit it's not PTI cardstock because the sentiment is computer generated and my printer will not take their wonderful stock. So I had to play around a little. But I will try this again with PTI. I'm sure the image will be crisper and won't need extra shimming.
I think this detail shot may show the embossing better.
No need for pricey Nestabilities with this trick. Thanks Heather. I'll definitely be making more of these.
