selective embossing. This was definitely a challenge. I had never tried this before, so it was fun to try something new. I think with the right folders it would have been a lot easier than trying to figure out the right "sandwich" to make it work... My poor swirl embossing folder almost didn't survive. A little heavy duty packaging tape & I think it's as good as new. I used a sizzix embossing folder and then gently rubbed a little broken china distress ink over the embossed areas with a distress tool.
