Visiting the Colosseum by Kerrie Gurney

Hi It's Kerrie again with a quick and easy technique to show you

I created this layout using the tan embossing mat to emboss my die instead of using it as a die cut.

What you need to create this technique 
Couture Creations Tan Embossing Mat, Sophia Choo Decorative Die, Core'dinations Cardstock

This is how to use your Decorative Dies to create an embossed image

Use your embossing sandwich and layer with acrylic plate, decorative die blade side up, Core'dinations cardstock textured side up, tan embossing mat, acrylic plate (if you use a Cuttlebug use both B plates)

run through machine, I ran it through twice to give extra depth

Sand lightly to show core colour, distress all edges of patterned paper and carstock using your scissors.
Layer all the pieces onto page and finish off with a row of pearls

 here is a close up look at the embossed detail

Happy Creating
