Springtime Expressions Thinlits dies embossed!!

Here's a card that Chris and I made yesterday using one of the
Springtime Impressions Thinlits dies to emboss!!
We watched a video on YouTube by Rachel Tessman, who demostrated how dies can be used
 to emboss, by using the Sizzix Big Shot for Stampin' Up! Embossing Mats.


I think that the photo shows quite well how crisp the embossing has come out
using the large die from Sprintime Expressions on the Grapefruit Grove Layer.
Whilst the butterfly die from the same set has been die cut using vellum for 
the bottom set of wings and Grapefruit Grove for the top set.
Colour combo is Calypso Coral Grapefruit Grove and Black on a 
Very Vanilla 7" x 5" base card.  
The sentiment is from Love What You Do stamp set.

I am really impressed with the principle of how this works, and will
be trying it out with my other Thinlits dies now!
