I have a folder with alternating bands of stars and a textured background, and I measured the width of one of the star bands, with borders each side, and cut a piece of card to size. I taped it over the folder and embossed.
As you can see, a little of the textured pattern did emboss too - I have seen this technique referred to as "diffusion" embossing and I think that must be because the edges come out a bit diffused.
Anyway, I got my starry border! I masked the edges and inked it with yellow DI then stamped the blue sentiment star - a Debbi Moore stamp which works a whole lot better now I have a stamping platform. I'd intended to stop there but the top and bottom looked a bit disconnected so I added a line of glue between the two raised stripes of the border and sprinkled it with blue glitter.
