Our card making video tutorial today teaches you how to create fence for our card.  Now I have made and built all kinds of fences in my day, from real outdoor fences to fences on my cards and scrapbook pages.  And by far, this is the easiest way!

One of the problems with creating a fence is adding texture to the posts.  You can stamp the texture, but if you really want to feel it, then you need to use some sort of embossing tool.  I used the new Woodgrain Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!.  Then comes the question, do I emboss then cut, or cut then emboss?  The answer is:  it depends on what kind of paper cutter you are using.  If you are using a sliding cutter or one that involves a pressure, like a bar that locks into place, then you want to cut first, which does make it more of a pain to dry emboss.  If you use one like I do in my video tutorial, it is easier to emboss it all first, then cut it apart – and simple wins for me everytime!
