Have you ever wished for an embossing folder that just doesn’t exist?  You can create the look of  an embossed background with the Faux Embossing Technique!

To make my card I used our Transfer Adhesive Sheets which have a protective coating over very sticky, strong adhesive.  Before running it through the Big Shot, I peeled the paper off of the Transfer Sheet and placed the sticky transfer sheet onto my Whisper White cardstock. You’ll run it through the Big Shot using this “sandwich”:

1.  Magnetic Platform

2.  Cutting Plate

3.  Adhesive Sheet/Whisper White cardstock with cardstock facing up

4.  A piece of waxed paper (this helps to remove the Thinlet)

5.  “Hello” Thinlit

6.  Cutting Plate

The word Hello easily peels off of the transfer sheet with a nice layer of adhesive on the back.  Another option would be to cut out the word using your Whisper White cardstock and then adding your own adhesive such as Tombow or the 2-way Glue pen.  For me, the adhesive sheet made it so easy to place the words down on my paper!

I started in the middle of my cardstock with the first hello.  I cut off the pieces that hung over the paper and was able to place some of the scraps onto my finished piece so don’t throw away those pieces until you are completely finished!  When you’re done, it looks as though you used an embossing folder!

I punched a few flowers using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, sponged Coastal Cabana ink around the edges, added a candy dot and adhered them around my words!

Here’s one more!
