Embossing using metal dies usually used for die cutting is surprisingly easy. Using the Big Shot, a 'sandwich' is made using the usual Big Shot platform and one cutting plate. Next comes the card, the die and a silicone craft sheet, found on page 203 of the Annual Catalogue. You will also need a piece of thick cardboard, such as that found in the packs with Foil sheets or Glimmer paper.
This sandwich is enough to create an impression, but not enough to cut. I used the Bloomin' Heart Thinlet and stamped and diecut some flowers from the matching Bloomin' Love stamp set. The sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet.
