This is how I kept the embossed outline of the die the Tattered lace "Ditsy Dots" folder

I have done this bit of a tutorial as some did not understand my one.. how to emboss in a folder with your cutting die in place..

  This is the card which has been die cut.....

 Turn over Cutting edge up

 Place in a folder..Die Cutting edge up..

Folder open..add tan embossing mats and one clear plate.

Run through your die cutting machine..
 After is has been embossed  

This is how it looks..with your die outline around the edge..

Gorgeous card Pam. I love the stamp and the whole design. You have just reminded me that I have those grand labels dies and have not used them for ages - it is certainly time to look them out after seeing this card.

Hello Pam, for me the most important card that needs to be hand made are Sympathy cards, as they are read and re-read many times, also it can show that you care if you can't make your own, try to have one or two in your stationary box from fairs, shows ect. Your fits my bill perfectly, I love soft coloured cards and if you don't mind I would like to adapt your design. X Ros

Hi Pam
This card is absolutely stunning. I do wish Spellbinders hadn't discontinued the Grand Labels 1. I've only just found that die, went to buy it but couldn't find it anywhere. Asked Spellbinders where I could buy them only to find out they had been discontinued. Mind you they kept the large ones as I'd ordered them thinking they were the grand ones.

Mary Mac said...

Hi Pam,
Another beautiful card and so appropriate for such an occasion. The stamp you've used is lovely and not 'in your face' and the Seedless Preserves ink was a marvellous choice.
Great tutorial too! Thanks Pam.

So pretty Pam! I need to try this, thanks for explaining how the right way! Every time I see you use this embossing folder I'm tempted to try to order it, I just love it! Blessings! Kathy

Equally lovely as your later cross sympathy card. This one is very delicate with the pretty flowers and the layers with the dies. Very pretty texture with the added foliage, and the soft colors. Thanks for the tutorial - this is something I've not tried to do this way, but shall! Very stunning results. TFS & Happy wkend.
