Cuttle Your Pages Friday August 13

Today I would like to show you how you can emboss a mat for your layout page. For my layout, I used brown Core'dination cardstock and my snowflake embossing folder. Because this is such a great cardstock to distress, I used my sanding block to bring out the under color. This is a very simple design by cutting two pieces of cardstock and designing the placement under my photo. If you are using a larger photo or want more mat coverage, simply prepare more cardstock to work with. I just wanted to show you how a simple technique can make such a difference on a layout page. Because our Be Inspired Wednesday challenge was to use acetate or acrylic, I embossed an acrylic ATC card, by Clear Scraps, with my Swiss Dot embossing folder to give a clean fun addition for my page. Printed cardstock is from My Minds Eye, date from Basic Grey; ribbon unknown. More dimension was added by using my EK Success Snowflake punch.

Roe, you knocked this one out of the park! You helped me think outside of the box; I tend to think a mat has to be the same distance from all 4 sides of the picture. Embossing really makes a LO "pop", and your snowflakes just come to life :)
