Emboss Resist Using Diecuts

another fun technique to stretch your die cuts by using them as a stencil to emboss resist

                                      I made a stencil from PTI's Triangle Cover Plate. 
                                      The little triangles reminded me of Christmas trees,
                                      so I used green inks to shade the background.
                                      Next I die cut a tree from silver foil paper and 
                                      directly adhered it to background panel,  embossed
                                      the sentiment on vellum, folding edges around the
                                      back of panel to secure before mounting panel with
                                      foam tape on a green A2 card.
