Can anyone tell me how to avoid and/or deal with the curling cs after spraying with glimmer mist? I applied glimmer mist to the Kraft panel (and the failed blue and white panels), left them overnight to dry, ran them through the cuttlebug, embossed them, left them under my desk blotter--- The kraft one came out the flattest, and it still curled enough to make die cutting and embossing a challenge. I glued it seriously to a black cs matte panel and it still curled. A little. Okay. An A for effort.

Brenda you card is AMAZING!!! I LOVE the sentiment and your neutral colors look wonderful together. Your frustrations are not apparent when looking at your awesome card.
As for the curling, I will leave that for the experts. I have had the same problems myself! Merry Christmas Brenda!!!

Beautiful sentiment, fantastic card for a man! As to the curling, hmmm, did you try ironing lightly on a towels loop side? You should be able to keep the embossing, as the embossing sinks into the towel. This is what I do with my embroidered, tatted, and crocheted doilies my grandmother made, thus keeping the texture of the handywork. It would be worth a try.
