I have many embossing folders and some I have never used yet, so I think I will be doing a few of the challenges over at Let's Squash it Challenge blog . This months challenge was to use dies or fussy cutting with your embossing folder. I went with fussy cutting my flowers from the embossing folder.
I want to say that I had not tried this embossing folder yet, I found it at Michaels and many embossing folders came in the set together, well as you can see it didn't emboss well in parts, I even ran it through my machine several times adding shims so that it would give more pressure, not sure if it is a defect or just cheap production, just thought I would let you know in case you thought to try out their brand of embossing folders.
While the cardstock was in the folder I did a little sanding of the raised areas. The sentiment was a couple of stamps and dies that I had in my Gemini advent calendar this year.
