Cricut Chipboard cuts for Embossing

I've been playing with my two favorite bugs, my cricut and my cuttlebug. I cut some chipboard shapes and used them to emboss. I really want the new Owl Cuttlebug folder, but guess what, I made my own so now I can buy something else instead. Here is a picture of the card I made. The owl and flourish are cuts from Storybook Cart. I then took pictures of the process using the back of a cereal box , since this more readily available and there is not guessing as to the thickness . The paper for embossing used is Stampin Up Whisper White, I suggest you use a smooth paper . This is the recipe from bottom up.

A plate
B plate,
Spellbinder's tan embossing mat
cardstock ( whisper white by Stampin up... is what I used )
chipboard cut.... this following example was done with cereal box
2 pieces of cereal box board for shim...I just folded a large piece
B plate

run through 2 times..in your cuttlebug

Back of embossing

This is awesome! That owl card is so cute. Love how you make your own embossing folders--I need to try that. Opens up so many possibilities! TFS!

Nilda, I'm wondering if I could use one of the plumber's mats in place of the tan mat? Any idea? - Ldybg93

Nilda, this is awesome! I am using this technique on my TCS card! Even with the enormous selection of folders that I have, I just couldn't find the perfect one... so, I'll make my own!
