Big Shot Thanks

I call this a Big Shot card because, although there is one stamped image and plenty of ink, this card is all about what you can do with a Big Shot. There were several dies and embossing folders used in this project, but you certainly don't need all of them to create a fabulous project. 

In particular, I wanted to make a project showcasing the Simple Flower Embosslit which is a Last Chance item and will be retiring at the end of this month. In case you don't know what an Embosslit is, it is a die that will both cut and emboss an image in one motion using the Big Shot. In this case, I embossed twice, first with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and then again with the Simple Flower Embosslit. The cardstock for the leaves was stamped with the Sanded Background Stamp, another Last Chance item.

What a great card. So fun to see how much you can do with just a bit of stamping and a lot of big shotting.
