Bouquet Bunch with a "Partial Impression"

I made this Thank You card today. I used a familiar layout (originally from the front of the catalog, but also from a few previous cards!). And, I used the new Summer Mini set Bouquet Bunch - love how cute and dainty the images are! And, the Thanks is from the Thank You Kindly set (I just masked off the "Kind" from the saying).

And this little technique, to make a "Partial Impression," was from my Friend Dena. Also we did this at last Friday's Big Shot class (with the Finial Press Impressions Folder).

It makes for a perfect-little-something when your card needs a little filler somewhere!

And this is how it is made. You actually cut up your Impressions folder into pieces. Then, you can have a single dotted impression, a double... You can fit whatever you need in wherever you need it! AWESOME!!

A Big hint though - when you're ready to run it through your Big Shot, remember to use NO tabs. Typically with the Impressions Folders, you use Tab 1. With NO tabs though, you won't pick up extra edges on the dry embossing.

Thanks for stopping by,

Love this! You are much braver than me... I don't think I could cut up one of my embossing folders.

This is so pretty, it gives it such different texture.
