Just Buggin' Challenge #26 Emboss It!

Happy Wednesday ladies!  It is hump day and what a great day it is!  It's time for another wonderful challenge at Just Buggin'!  Today's Challenge  #26 is to Emboss It!  That's right---emboss your diecuts!
You can heat emboss your diecuts or you can run them through the Big Shot with an embossing folder or texture plate. 

Here's a big flower I made using the Walk in My Garden cartridge.  I cut out several sizes using the regular and shadow feature.  I ran each flower through my Big Shot with an embossing folder.  I used three different folders with 4 different colors of SU cardstock.  I took chalk ink and rubbed each flower to make the petals pop.   Then, starting at the bottom, I glued each flower on top of the next to build this layered effect.  After all were glued and I showcased it with a button in the middle, I bent each petal upwards, so the flower would look more open and not flat.
Cardstock:  Stampin' Up
Cricut cartridge:  Walk in the Garden
Embossing Folders:  Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Tiny Bubbles, Spots and Dots
Chalk Ink:  VersaMagic Pumpkin Spice
Button:  Unknown
Embroidery floss:  DMC
