Can you see the pretty embossed snowflakes in the background?  I had to work REALLY hard to limit myself to only three!   That panel would’ve been LITTERED with them if I had included all the Snowfall thinlits – 20 to be exact!  Are you amazed at my restraint?  😋

The snowflakes are perfectly complemented by the Snow is Glistening tree I heat embossed in silver.  The gorgeous glittered black ribbon and a few clear rhinestones dresses it up even more.

How to Emboss with Thinlit Dies


To get awesome dry embossed backgrounds without cutting your paper, the most important thing is the way you build your Big Shot sandwich.  So let’s have a little look-see shall we?

The trick is to turn your die UPSIDE down so the cutting blade is facing UP.  Then your cardstock (1 sheet only please) sits on top covered with the THIN blue silicone mat and your Impressions pad.

All these items are included with the Big Shot Embossing Mats and are super reasonable at only $21 CDN. 

IMPORTANT:  Make sure you use the right silicone mat for this technique or you could end up cutting right through your cardstock.  Yup, been there, done that and have holey piece of cardstock to show for it!  It’s the thin blue one you want.

(But don’t worry, the grey one is awesome for adding lovely embossed details on framelits.  Just like on this knockout Christmas card featuring heat embossing.)  

Let’s see a close up.
