My Swap from Orlando Regional

Here is the card I made for my swap at the Regional!  It is of Asian design which is some of my favorites.  :)

For the Bonsai, I stamped the image in Basic Black and then used a Blender Pen and Old Olive to color the leaves.

The technique I am featuring here is omitting a section with an Embossing Folder as shown below.

First, take a piece of cardboard.  I used the cardboard that comes in the DS Paper packages.  Using the Exacto Knife, cut out the section you want to omit.  You can also use the Big Shot to cut a shape.

Lay the Embossing Folder over the cardboard, get it positioned just the way you want it, then trace with pencil.

Remove the Embossing Folder and put Dotto to the cardboard edges.  Put the Embossing Folder back on using the lines you have drawn.  The adhesive will keep the folder from sliding when going through the Big Shot.

Put your piece of cardstock in the folder.

You want to be on Tab 2 of the Multipurpose Platform.

Put your cardboard/Embossing Folder directly on Tab 2 (do not use the bottom cutting plate).

Put a cutting plate on top then run through the Big Shot.

You will have your Omission!
