Embossing Acrylic or Acetate

Have I mentioned how much I like the sharing that happens in our blogging community? I have?!
Well, I'm saying it again because I just would have never thought of this on my own. A couple of weeks or so ago, Cuttlebug Challenges suggested embossing chipboard and this week they suggested embossing acetate or acrylic. Both ideas I just wouldn't have thought of doing. And like the chipboard, the acrylic embossed wonderfully.

I found acrylic flowers at a scrapbook store the other night then combined them with these scraps(trying to use up scraps these days)to create this card. I used the swirls folder to emboss all the flowers. Then popped the one under the acrylic flower up and layered another on top so that the acrylic flower stands out a bit.

This is a technique that I'll definitely try again!
