I had a request a few days ago for a tutorial on how to create the embossed look on my card. I just want to say that I am all for tutorials that show just how it is done. I am one of those learners. When I first got my wizard and nesties I seriously had some adventurous days ahead of me. After all, I was supposed to know what I was talking about right? Cause I design cards and post cards right? Ummmm no! You would have laughed at me. I actually thought I broke it after I heard the crack. In fact I think I managed to break something. Oh and NO ONE told me to hold the plates together as I was cranking it through that very first time. Yup...they flew across the room and almost dented the wall. Lesson=read the instructions. Ok, so I read the instructions and watched the video. You'd think I would learn. Unfortunately I need step 1/step 2/step 3...all those silly little details that practiced experts often leave out. The good news is once I learn I have it for life. I am just a little slow. So there you have it, I might look like I know what I am talking about but I also have to learn! learn! learn!
What you need:
Step 1--Place your embossing wizard thick mat--the white blcok mat block (the one that gets scratched up
--Next place the wizard emboss mat (the rubber mat)
--Then place your cardstock
--Followed by your Nestie
--Finally sandwich with the top wizard thick mat (the one without the scratches)
Step 2--Place together (like a sandwich) and crank through your wizard (or cuttlebug).
Tidbit: you get a better emboss with the wizard than the cuttlebug.
Step 3--Remove all layers and VOILA...embossed!
And here's a quick card too..
