Spellbinders Cut and Emboss Tutorial

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a new tutorial to share for Spellbinders using one of the fabulous Cut and Emboss Folders - they are so elegant and so easy to use.  The possibilities really are endless and as always, there is not right or wrong.  I hope you are inspired by the way I have used the Flower Garden Cut and Emboss Folder

"Flower Garden Cut and Emboss Folder is an embossing folder with etched dies embedded inside to cut and emboss in one pass. Everything is done for you! Fits an A2-sized (4.25 x 5.5 in.) card front.
The sandwich to use with the Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting Machine from bottom to top is: Platform Plate, Cut and Emboss Folder with card stock inside and one Cutting Plate"
