embossing with wood veneers

Its another idea for your wood veneers! Being a die cutting girl, the first idea that always pops into my head is, can I cut it, or can I emboss it?

Turns out, you can emboss them! I placed them on my base plate, topped them with cardstock and then, with the cutting plate. It’s a bit tight, but it works. The wood veneers will be a bit squished, but still completely usable.

The small print: I attempted this with my Spellbinders Grand Calibur. I cannot vouch for other machines, nor for other brands of wood veneers. These butterflies are from Studio Calico.

Using Distress inks as watercolor, I then brushed over the now-embossed cardstock.  The water did “loosen” up the embossing, making it less obvious.
