D2D Masie Belle

Here is my card for the ongoing challenge at
with the image of Maise Belle.

Because I did not have an apple embossing folder,
I made one myself.
You can do it too!
(great to use up some of your scraps)

You need:
grey board

Punch out a lot of items with your punch.
I chose to make my own apple embossing folder.
With a glue stick I glued the apples to the grey board.
I stack two apples on top of each other to make the relief.
If you use thin paper maybe stack 3 or 4.

Now it depends on what kind of embossing machine
you have and this needs a little experimenting.
I have a cuttlebug and I use two B plates and a mat of silicone rubber.
 Stack like this: b-plate- home mate embossing folder -
paper - silicone mat - b plate.

Hope you give this a try too.

Cute card! I had no idea you could make your own embossing folders, I have a Cuttlebug also and will definitely be giving this a try. Thanks so much for the inspiration! :)

Blog candy at my place! :)

This is so darn cute, and I immediately thought I need that apple e/f. But you taught me how to make one, brilliant idea! Thanks for joining the weekly progressive challenge at D2D.
