DIY Debossed Frame

I guess I've got royals on the brain after all the recent festivities - I'm sure I'm not the only one! I was playing around with some diecuts and decided to make another DIY embossing plate. (Very easy: diecut three identical shapes and glue them all together, stacked, to make one thick piece.) I ran it through my Cuttlebug using this sandwich:

From bottom: 
  • A plate
  • B plate
  • tan embossing mat (I use two together)
  • cardstock (face up for debossing, which I did for this card, or face down for embossing)
  • homemade embossing plate
  • B plate
Love the big impact such a simple technique can make!

Card Supplies:
Stamps: Pink Paislee "Queen Bee"; Ink: ColorBox pigment "Surf"; Accessories: Cricut / Storybook cartridge, Cuttlebug, adhesive rhinestones 


  1. Thanks for the tutorial and I love your clean and simple card!

  2. What a great idea! I've never seen that before. Such an elegant effect!!
