Framed Flowers


I saw a wonderful idea from France Martin today.  She embossed the designer frame, then embossed the Flower Garden flower inside it.  Genius, right?  And it’s so easy.  You just line it up, then add 7 (yes, seven!) layers of the cardboard that comes with the designer series paper over the embossing folder.  I used the large (wide) oval punch to punch ovals, stacked them and placed them over the flower.  For the sandwich, you use Tab 1 on the multipurpose platform, no bottom cutting plate, then the embossing folder with the card stock, stack of cardboard, top plate.

Here’s the full card.

    I don’t get the “7 layers of the cardboard” part?? Can you explain that part?

    After you emboss the card stock with the frame, put the embossed card stock into the Flower Garden frame. Then, punch 7 ovals from the cardboard.* Stack them together (I taped them) and place the stack on top of the folder , covering the image you want embossed (but not inside the folder). It gives extra pressure to that part, but keeps the pressure off the bottom part of the big flower that you don’t want. Then when you sandwich it in, you use the platform, folder w/ card stock inside, stack of cardboard, top cutting plate. Here’s France’s video –
    Seeing it helps!! * I don’t think the cardboard has to be ovals, but punching was quick and easy! I also cut some rectangle frames, and that worked too.
