Embossing resist @ Unstampabelles

Dear Friends,
I am lucky enough to have many craft friends who are generous to share RAK then and there.
This card is made out of the diecuts provided by Dr sonia. Since i don't have any die-cutting machine the diecuts which she shares helps me a lot to beautify my work and this card is dedicated to her.

This card created as my  DT inspiration for Unstampabelles.
Challenge - Resistance TWIST use  resistance technique and explain it in your blog

I have used the lattice diecut for embossing resist technique. It is very easy.

Here are steps for resist embossing with diecut which i followed
1. Place the diecut over the cardstock on which you want to emboss and apply versamark embossing pad directly over the stencil.Remove the stencil and add embossing powder over it and then emboss it using a heating tool.
2. Upon embossing, no distress it with distressinks with dauber.
3. Your embossing resist technique is over
4. Decorate or embellish the card the way you wanted.

Hope you find it easy to make

Look forward to your submission to Unstampabelles.

Winner will get the below prize from Susan
