This time the team at Let's Squash It are asking for a combination of embossing and die cutting or fussy cutting - lots of possibilities here I'm sure. I decided to go down the die cutting route and started by cutting out a 'brass' jar to contain an assortment of die cut flowers. This jar was then embossed using a floral embossing folder to give the appearance of a decorative brass pot. The selection of die cut flowers were in a container on my desk left from a session of stamping, colouring and cutting - always handy to have a few flowers ready to pick up and use. This was all arranged onto some die cut shapes with the addition of a paper doily along with a label for the sentiment. I'm sure many of us have lots of rarely used embossing folders in our stash and this challenge is a great excuse to bring some of them out into the limelight.
