Today I made a card almost entirely with my silhouette, beginning with a fun little technique I decided to try. The embossed background is from a home made embossing plate I created on Silhouette with Acetate/Transparency Paper and a Background Image.
Cutting it at a chipboard setting worked best. Might have to run it through twice. I embossed by running the cut out through my big shot with all tabs & 3 sheets of cardstock shims. Its only a very light embossing, but I almost prefer it that way.
The cut-out will be very versatile as a stencil also.
The bear and banner were also cut from Silhouette and a few run through the big shot for some embossing accents. The sentiment is Hero Arts, heat embossed.
