Photo Embossing

Charity Becker here with a quick and easy technique. Have you ever had that perfect photo that just needed a touch of something special to draw attention to it's awesomeness? When I have a photo like that I use my embossing machine and an embossing folder.
Either I choose an embossing folder that frames my photo's subject:
Check this blogpost for details on this layout.
Or I emboss just the edges of my photo.
Either way I set the photo in the folder so that the front of the photo will end up with the raised design. After cranking my photo through the machine I sand the raised design.
This extra bit of technique takes a photo from "nice" to "WOW."
