There's a lot of scope with our new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz today - the theme is Travel or Transport.
I've used this beautiful scene embossing folder which, along with a super set of stamps which I used for the sentiment, was the cover gift on a recent issue of Papercraft Essentials.
I embossed it once in white, then just the area around the balloon in red, cut out the red balloon and attached it over the white one in the scene.
Now, I wonder if any of you can give me a bit of advice. I use a Grand Calibur, and in general the sandwich I use with embossing folders is [white plate - folder - Grand Raspberry plate] but with the normal weight of cardstock I use for embossing, it simply wouldn't go through, and having killed a machine a few years ago with an over-thick folder, I didn't want to risk it again. So I tried different combinations of plates but with the grey plate on the bottom it still wouldn't go through and with the pale pink plate it went through like a dream but didn't emboss at all.
I tried using thinner and thinner cardstock until, in the end, using the thinnest in my stash plus the grey plate I got my embossed landscape. But what sandwich do YOU use when faced with a slightly-too-thick embossing folder?
