Tuesday Tip/Technique

Hello friends

Today is Tuesday Tip/Technique and this week I'm featuring 
selective embossing with Spellbinders® M-Bossabilities .

First off if you have a Wilkinsons near you see if you can grab a packet of these tags.
They are really good quality thick card and just begging to be altered!
 I've used one of them with Enchanted M-Bossabilities  folder.
 I placed just half of the heart tag inside the folder, the other part sticking out the bottom 
of the folder.  I didn't even remove the twine..speedy!
 The sandwich is base plate, your folder with medium inside and Raspberry Spacer Plate.
The end result is lovely. 
You could decorate the blank area or it is a good place to write your message.
 Use the same selective embossing technique with envelopes.
I've inserted just the flap inside the folder.
The finished envelope - how about doing this with your Christmas card envelopes?
It really dresses them up. 
 And again with an envelope, I've inserted it into the folder diagonally for a different finish.
This is Flora.
Three ideas for selective embossing. 
M-Bossabilities are available on the website here and there are quite a few
in Pre-Loved too.

Take care friends, I'm back tomorrow.
