Embossing 2 ways with Flourish Thinlits & Flourishing Phrases from Stampin’ Up!


I’ve just had my first play with the Big Shot embossing mats which allow you to use your thinlits (or other dies) to emboss card, rather than cut it.  Genius!!


I love the Flourish Thinlits so these were a natural choice for my first try with the embossing mats and I was not disappointed.  It’s hard to photograph (for me anyway!) but it really does give a lovely deep embossed image without cutting the paper.

This opens up lots of new possibilities for all the dies in my craft room and I can’t wait to try out more soon.

My Whisper White card base measures 29 x 10.5 cm and was scored and folded at 14.5 cm to create a portrait tent fold.

I added some of the beautiful Tranquil Textures designer series paper measuring 10 x 14 cm.

I used the largest thinlit from the Flourish set with the embossing mats on Night of Navy card.  Watch the Stampin’ Up! video below for more information on this fabulous product…

I trimmed my embossed Night of Navy card to measure 8 x 12 cm.  I then stamped the Just a Note from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss powder and heat set it.  So this part of the card has been embossed 2 ways!

I added this panel to my card, added a few pearls and the trellis piece that I cut from Whisper White card using one of the other Flourish thinlits dies.


I hope you’ve enjoyed this project, as much as I did when I made it.
