How to Use Metal Dies to make an Embossed Background

Hey guys! Stacie here with a tutorial on using metal dies to create an embossed background!

First gather all your supplies. I used A Big Shot, 2 rubber mats, various snowflake dies, a piece of white cardstock & the cutting pad to add some thickness to my sandwich.

I put the rubber mat down first

then put my cardstock on next.

I added my dies all over the cardstock

I added the other rubber mat on top (you can also just double the rubber mat on the bottom if your dies cut through too much)

The dies went through a little too much but not all the way so I went with it!

I used some Glitter Kiss Silver to cover the background to give it a shiny snow like appearance.

Here is the finished background

And the finished card!

I used:
