There are lots of embossing and diecutting machines out there, and the Big Shot Express is one of the coolest! No cranks, no ratchets - just load and press a button.
Also, they are now providing the option of a small unit - totally cute - that only embosses. They call it the Texture Boutique.
We created the large dot texture background and the phrase card using the latter and the snowflake using the former.
As we used Die Cuts With a View's white core texture paper, we were able to sand off the surface layer on the phrase to expose the center and highlight the raised words.
...and we got FLAIR! Flair is swell.
