As a reward I also got to spend a few hours in my craft room! I really don't like painting!
In the latest issue of Craft Stamper there was an article about embossing Core'dination paper with chipboard shapes in a die cutting machine. The outcome was really pretty! I bought some wooden embellishments just to try this out. I found a handmade Indian paper, a little "thicker" than ordinary paper, in my shelves. I made a sandwich with the A plate, B plate, wooden embellishment, paper, embossing mat, B plate and ran it through my Cuttlebug. Painted the raised areas and stamped them with a script stamp before I removed the wooden embellishment. Simple, but yet eye catching!
