PIMI Part 2

I did try another PIMI card with same original, and then did some experimenting, and this is what I came up with:

 This one I did pop the middle up, and it worked well. What I really need is more green cardstock of the same colour!

Then I started experimenting with the embossing, and found how to emboss a piece of paper leaving part of the paper un-embossed. I found it here but I didn't have the frame folder they used, so I just cut a rectangle out of cardboard. After a few failed tries, and running up and down the stairs to keep checking (I have a new router that will now hopefully reach my stamping room!) I managed to get an effect not as sharp as in the video, but still nice:

This was my first one

And my second one (my fav)
The embossing didn't show up when I straight scanned the cards, so I had to get an angle to get it to show. As you can see, the edges of the openings are soft, not hard lines, which I liked on these 2 cards!

Tips that I learned the hard way for this technique: 
1-the bumpy part of your embossing folder should be on the bottom - feel! 
2-it's the FRAME you need, not the cut out piece!

So that was fun, from one PIMI I got 4 new cards!

Thank you for visiting, and remember,  I love your comments!
