Easy Embossed Frames
"Do you like the look of an embossed frame on your card, but don't have the money or space for a machine that does the work? Well, if you have a lightbox and some punches, you can achieve the same look! What you need to do is punch out the shape you'd like to have embossed and save the NEGATIVE space from it. Here, I punched a square to use for the negative space. Attach this to a lightbox (or even tape it to a window), place the cardstock you wish to emboss over it (I stamped the chubby bird on a scalloped square), and run your stylus over the inside edges of the negative space. When you finish, you will have an embossed frame around the stamped image. Very easy to do and it saves you money for stamps!"
