Tuck a piece of Whisper White card stock in the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impression Embossing Folder and run through the Big Shot.  TIP:  I like to do this back and forth to grab dimension in both directions.  Crop to 2 1/2 x 4 5/8 keeping the tufted pattern centered.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
