Here is a fun and easy technique I found when I was "surfing" through blogs (my favorite pastime!), unfortunately, I don't know exactly where I found this. The technique was titled "Embedded embossing". For the cards here, I punched out several different sizes of circles and attached them to the cardstock. Then, I ran the card front through the Big Shot using a small print design embossing folder. This would be a cute technique with any design - it makes a nice textured background. The duck was made with the Cricut cartridge "New Arrival".
