Nestability embossed Lili of the Valley Wedding card

Sharing a wedding card with everyone today, made with a Lily of the Valley stamp (see my Retail Corner - Where I buy page for link to LOTV shop). This is one of my oldest LOTV stamps but I still love and use it sooooo much!!

This card is very simple and not decorated too much because I wanted the spellbinders debossing to really pop - the shapes of the oval and label dies work so well together - use a no shims rubber mat and plates for an embossing sandwich that you usually use with an embossing folder, and that's the approximate thickness of sandwich for you BS or CB.

really loves those wild orchid roses - think the shade I used this time is pink mist...might have to check my stash for that one! another view of the embossing / debossing below (note that the die doesn't actually cut through the card :

the plates and card / die recipe I used was as follows -
NOTE: do not force your machine if it doesn't feel right!):

Big shot base platform with both tabs lifted (not used)
clear plate
no shims rubber mat (the thick one)
image face up
dies cutting side face down
clear plate (the cleanest non marked ones if possible otherwise the marks will show on your image)
run through your machine

any questions, feel free to leave a comment.
