Tutorial: Debossing by Marcia!

Marcia here today with a debossing tutorial. I want you to look at your embossing folders and see more than the raised images.
Baby feet can become footprints in the sand...
Snowflakes can have some sparkle added to them...
I like to use color Core'dinations cardstock or white Core'dinations cardstock when debossing. You will also need a sanding block and I like to keep some baby wipes handy to clean up the dust. Turn the embossing folder upside down and place the top side of the cardstock face up in the folder.
Run through your Sizzix (or other machine) and then sand the entire top with a sanding block.
I like to wipe the top of my debossed cardstock with a baby wipe to clean off the excess dust after sanding, and then clean up my work space. Now you have nooks and crannies that work great for adding some Stickles or Liquid Pearls.
This adds a little bit of sparkle to a card I made using the Little Yellow Bicycle Paradise collection.
I would love to see your debossing projects too. Leave a comment on my blog (http://onescrapatatime-bymumsie.blogspot.com/) with a link to yours so I can take a peak. Thanks for looking :)
