The layout I created....
Here is my tutorial...

Emboss Core'dinations cardstock as normal, then (leaving cardstock in the Velvet Tealights embossing folder) ink the raised design on the folder using a die-based ink.  Close folder and run it through your die-cutting machine again.  The ink will have transferred to the cardstock.  Sand the raise areas with a sanding block.

Using the Tied Together die as a stencil, ink the pattern onto the Coredinations Whitewash cardstock.  Emboss the corner of the layout using Classics embossing folder and sand to reveal the core colour.

Here's some close-ups of my completed layout.

I cut Tied Together and Mirror Mirror Ornamental Lace dies to use for layering.

 I de-bossed the Peacock Fans pattern onto the Imaginarium Designs Butterfly Border (which I cut up) before heat embossing.

 I heat embossed the Imaginarium Designs "You Inspire Me" title and hearts.

 I love this new release "Roses" Intricutz die,

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
