It's fun when you make a card and everyone asks in amazement, "how did you do that?". The recipient acts like you did something wonderful when it was really easy.
Tim Holtz Diffusers allow you to block off part of a card where you don't want it to emboss. For our card we ran the paper through our Big Shot twice, once with the small inset square diffuser and the spotted embossing plate and then again with the square frame diffuser and the zig zag embossing folder. The tree is Savvy's leafy tree die.
