The technique is as simple as 1-2-3.
- Use your favorite punch on some coordinating scraps.
- Adhere the scraps to a piece of cardstock in whatever pattern you wish (I went with a random placement).
- Emboss the cardstock with the embossing folder of your choice. Generally, the tighter the embossing pattern, the better the result.
Here, I used a Swiss Dot pattern:
And on this card, I used the more open Birds & Swirls pattern.
Even though it's a more open design, I still like the result:
