Diamonetta Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate - I Used It To Emboss Without Foiling Too !!

Who knew ?   Maybe I am bit late to the party, but I have just discovered that not only can I use my foil plates to beautifully foil images on my cards, but I can use them to emboss designs too!

I used the lovely Diamonetta Background Hot Foil Plate for today's projects.   I foiled the centre panel for my card, and then set about deciding how best to show it off.   Then it hit me - "why not try embossing with my Diamonetta plate without using foil too"?  It was a little "light-bulb" moment for me and I quickly set about experimenting.  

I am delighted to report that I managed to obtain a really good crisp and sharp embossed image.   All I did was use the plate from my hot foil system when it had cooled down after foiling, and placed my card stock down directly on the plate added the hot foil plate face down and covered with the two other plate accessories from the system and ran it cold through my Platinum 6 and ...... voila !   

I then assembed the card using my Elegant Twist Ovals Etched Dies and my Heart Melt Sentiments Hot Foil Plates for the topper and sentiment, along with some mulberry paper roses.   The swirly die is from my Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies.

I also made a simple cubed shaped treat box and used some weeny foiled centre panels to decorate some decorative squares.  For the squares I used my Elegant Twist Squares Etched Dies.

Well I had a super time coming up with these little projects.   I do hope you like them and I hope you will join me again here on my blog.  

Thanks for looking.

Stay safe.  Bye for now and .........................."happy crafting everybody!".
