I am pretty sure that you all know about embossing, but what about debossing with your Borders Scoring Plate from Stampin' Up!? Just in case you don't know the difference, here it is:
Embossing raises an image, item, etc up on your project whether it is heat embossing or dry embossing. When you run your fingers over the top, you can feel it raised up off the surface.
Debossing is the opposite, it depresses your image, item, etc on your project. When you run your fingers over the top, you feel the depression. (Note: I said the depression, not that you will feel depressed, there is no depression in card making, it is all for good!)
I actually love doing both embossing and debossing and sometimes I get a little too much caffeine, thank you Dr. Pepper, and go wild and crazy and do both! (I know, living life on the wild side, right?)
And that is what I did on this card. There is a very important step in doing this and I taught it to you yesterday with my favorite tool to use along with my Simply Scored and the Borders Scoring Plate, you will really really really want to have repositionable adhesive with you when you do this.
(If you missed that tip, you can view the video here.)
This is the card I made using the embossing & debossing technique with my Borders Scoring Plate:

I’m sort of new to your website, Meg. Loving it so far. Your drab to fab video series is great too. Your enthusiasm for card making is unmistakable. I have been a follower of your pal Catherine’s blog and belong to Stamp Nation. I just came upon your connection to her and Angie by accident. You make a dynamic trio. Love what I learn from each of you. I am a new demonstrator and need all sorts of ideas–and certainly have great resources from you three. Thanks for your part in all of it. Can’t wait to see what’s coming next.
Love the new website!!!! Great job Meg!!!!
