Now I can deboss (or emboss if you wish by having the front of your card facing down in the sandwich) the stencil has become much more versatile - okay, only through my accident of mangling up the frame but nevertheless more versatile. You can move your stencil around to suit your card - here are two layouts.
Using 1 stencil
Using 2 stencils
You will notice that I have placed the stencil over the centre fold, but even embossing this way works - it looks as if it was meant to be there enhancing the back of the card!
and another possible design
Add a flower spray and you have a card for any occasion.
I'm not sure that if I'd not had my mishap with the frame that I would have had the nerve to get the scissors out to this pretty metal stencil, but then accidents do happen and sometimes they turn out for the better. I feel that the embossing is nicer like this than in the whole, somehow it seems more noticeable - a case of less is more and there is the added bonus of lots of different designs! You will also have a decorative pattern on the inside on your card. However, I have to admit that now I have 4 bits instead of 1, I cannot use the the impressabilitie die to stencil. Wonder if I can stick it together?!?!?! I've not finished with this tale yet for tomorrow in my Friday Followers Gallery I'll show you something that one of my blog mates has done with impressabilities!?!?!?
