What a cool technique to give a look like you used an embossing folder: Faux Dry Embossing, this week's Technique Lovers' Challenge!
I decided to give this a shot using my widest Scor Tape. I stuck a strip of it onto cardstock and ran it repeatedly through the Cuttlebug using the very first dies I bought with it. Once I had a bunch of shapes cut, I peeled the sookwang backing paper off and stuck all the shapes on the same color of cardstock. I put the panel through the Cuttlebug before adding my pink flower to make if more uniformly "flattened". A great look!

Now that's a wonderful result with the pink flower echoing all the faux embossing. Hmmm, I thought about using double-sided sheets but decided it would be a lot of work peeling the backing off. I can imagine that Scor-tape would work very well though.
