How to make your own embossing plate

How do you like the embossed heart background??? It is so easy. All that was needed was the Heart to Heart punch, cardstock and glue. To make your embossing plate, punch (all three hearts) approximately 6 times and glue to a piece of cardstock. Now punch again until you have all your hearts with four layers. (I found the fourth layer made the impression more defined) The Big Shot sandwich I used was: (from bottom to top) Multrpurpose Platform on tab 2, Cutting pad, cardstock shim, Heart to Heart embossing plate (face up), cardstock you want to be embossed, another cardstock shim, Impressions Pad. Can you imagine the embossing plates you can make, butterflies, flowers, birds, snowflakes (you get the picture). Try it and let me know what you think. I want to thank Elaine at for the great idea of making your own embossing folder.
