I pondered how to "press" my element in my embossing folder for a minute and came up with this.
As mentioned, I could only emboss half of my piece at a time, so I lined up one side in the folder
and then I pressed it with a rolling pin. I did not have to press very hard at all to get a good impression.
Here is a little peek at the first half.
Then I adjusted my die cut and repeated for the second half.
Now with both sides done, it looks great, and took no time at all!
Here is a look at it on my page.
And this is a full shot of my layout.
I can see me using this tip for small embossed pieces too, why haul out the Cuttlebug for little jobs??!! Or maybe you do not have a Cuttlebug but like the look of dry embossing, hmm got you thinking didn't I?
So glad you stopped by today!
