Partial Embossing with the Big Shot is a fun twist to put on your cards and it’s really easy to do.
A couple months ago, I made THIS card and only partially embossed my top layer of cardstock. I’ve gotten quite a few questions on how I did that.
Today I thought I’d do a video for you showing you exactly how to emboss only part of your card. View this quick video to see how to do this:

Anna and I played around with this fun stuff over the weekend and found it pretty easy to work with. The clay comes white and this flower was made by adding two drops of Melon Mambo Reinker to the clay before putting it in the mold. We also found that if you make white flowers you can color ON the flower with any color marker! COOL! Make up a bunch of them at once and have them on hand ready to color to match any project. We found the ones you color with the marker straight onto the finished flower ended up being a darker, more vibrant color.
How did I make the leaves??? It’s the small butterfly punch! Seriously!
