I'm just so thrilled with the new Big Shot Embossing Mats (Stampin' UP! catalog pg 221 #146327), and enjoying the fact that I can double my fun with my thinlits and framelits!!!  It's it amazing to be able to emboss AND die cut with your thinlits & framelits?? 

Today we are embossing with the Embossing Mats, our Big Shot and the Springtime Impressions butterfly thinlit!  (Springtime Impressions thinlit pg 219, #146326)

Use Big Shot Embossing mats to emboss the butterfly image from the Springtime Impressions thinlits dies from Stampin' Up!.  Handmade card featuring Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stack, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I used the new Balmy Blue cardstock cut to about 3" x 4" and embossed the butterfly from the Springtime Impressions thinlits with the Embossing Mats, then used the Detailed Trio corner punch to round and decorate 2 opposite corners.  I sponged Balmy Blue ink onto the raised portion of the butterfly with a sponge dauber.

The card base is a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Thick Whisper White card, and I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of printed Garden Impressions paper to that before adding the butterfly and fussy cut flowers.

Below: to decorate the card, I cut several flowers out of the 6×6 Garden Impressions paper stack, and used them on the card.

I also added some Wink of Stella to the butterfly, although it's probably hard to see in the photo, but it does lend a pretty shimmer to the card!
