What a great combination, embossing and diecut! it works best to cut out the diecut first and then fit it into your embossing folder. A perfect fall leaf already embossed for you. It doesn't get any easier that that. I used some distress ink to ink the embossed veins. I wish Provo Craft would come up with more of these combos, because they'd definitely be a must buy for me.
I love Autumn therefore I love the leaves. I have loads of leaf punches, stamps but this is the only one that truly resembles a leaf with it's veins.
Very realistic and gives dimension to your work as well.
