WOW! Video: Embossing Mats & Stamping Tips

Here is my WOW! video demonstration for yesterday’s Varied Vases patriotic card.  In the video, I share tips for using the Stampin’ Up! Big Shot Embossing Mats as well as stamping the flower stems for a perfect fit behind the punched vase (crediting my friend and fellow demonstrator, Patty Bennett, for the second tip)!
