Took me quite a few tries to get the double embossing down, where you leave a blank spot for an image or sentiment.
You have to cut the cardboard to have the "hole" (see the non embossed area where I stamped).
Then make the correct sandwich for your machine, I have the Big Shot. Then try and get a good impression then go back with the die and then reinforce the blank area. I used all SU products.
Then find a stamp image and hope you get it centered - glad to say I did. Unfortunately I still had to color it. Which is not my forte!
Anyways I am quite pleased with it, and I hope the intended person(s) whomever may receive this enjoys it.
