Embossing fun with Scraps

Is your scrap bin overflowing? Do you feel the need to use every piece of that cardstock that you can? Do you dream and search for ways to use up all those straight pieces trimmed away from your perfect 5.5 x 4.25 inch card bases?? YES! Well, I have a quick and easy technique for you! After making my holiday cards, I feel like I am drowning in straight pieces of card stock that are just to small for any sentiment I have. I like to glue those babies to any 5.25 x 4 inch piece of card stock and run through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss/Big Shot machine with an embossing folder! Be sure to trim the white pieces so they are even with your card stock base before embossing. I attach the white strips with glue. You can use tape, that works just fine. If you use glue, make sure the glue is very dry (set aside for a few days) before embossing or else you could have a gluey mess!

Seize the Birthday #230 Embossing challenge had me looking at my embossing folders for these cards! I do not use my embossing folders enough, so this was a great challenge!
