Embossing please!

Update: This card received the "Honorable Gnome" title!! I'm so so happy! thanks!! :)

Hi there! My week was super busy but yesterday I found some time to make a card and I challenged myself with a new technique..! 
Here's what I created..

I love the dry embossing effect on a card! I think it's amazing, because it's clean and elegant! But I only have an embossing folder.. yeah the sample I found in the Big Shoot package and i don't know why but i didn't gave it  much attention ever .. But lately i saw lots and lots of cards made with the dry emboss technique and I decided to create my own embossing design with some Lawn fawn dies! :)
Here are some details.. hope you can se clearly the embossing through these pictures..!

I didn't follow any tutorial because i don't have any silicon rubber or other supplies.. I just make some different "sandwiches options" with my Big Shoot platform, my plates, some paper and lots of paper towels! Yeah! They are my embossing secret! ahah! :)

If you like to try too.. here's what i did!
I opened my platform to the TAB1, i positioned a simple piece of cardstock on it and then i put on it my first plate. 
Then I took 3 paper towels, I opened them and folded them in half for three times and i stacked them up on my plate. Then I put my card on top, i positioned all the the dies and closed my sandwich with the other plate.
I runned it through my cutting machine back and forth twice and the embossing was done!
Then I finished my card stamping the coordinate stamps with some happy colors to make this technique pop on my project!
I did the same with the alphabet dies to embossing my sentiment! :)
And since these are super rainy days here in my town here's an happy embossed cloud! ihih! :)

I hope you really like my project! If you like the embossing technique please let me know all your secrets and tips for best results with a comment below! :)

Thank you so so much for stopping by today! Have an amazing week end!
