The technique challenge this week over at the Just Us Girls site was faux embossing. There are a couple ways to do it. I die cut my flower image out of the same paper as my background paper. Then I adhered it using glue dots, and ran it through my die cut machine. I used the embossing plate (verses the cutting), and used about 6 sheets of cardstock as shims to get it thick enough. That flattened the flower into the paper so it looks like I used an embossing plate with this design. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. This was a fun technique. I think I'll use it again.
