For this card, I made a mask with the Top Note die using acetate. I masked it off and then stamped the Sanded background over the mask. I also made a embossing template using the Top Note die and then after the cone flowers were stamped and the background sponged, I dry embossed the card using my template that I made with the long board chipboard. It sounds complicated but it really wasn’t that hard. I made 12 of these for a convention swap and several more for friends.
