A is for Angelina Fibers Embossed

Angelina Fibers are made out of the same material as Fantasy Film, they are very thin strands instead of sheets. For this technique, I first ironed two different colors of Angelina Fibers together between two sheets of parchment to make a thin wispy sheet. Next I ran it through the Cuttlebug with a butterfly die and an extra sheet of card stock to help the die cut all the way through the fibers. Then I ran the cut out fibers through a Cuttlebug Butterfly embossing folder, again I added an extra sheet of card stock under the folder to help place more pressure on this very thin material.
Here's a close up of the embossed Angelina Fiber Butterfly.
Punched out some small butterfly shapes with a punch, having a sheet of wax paper under the ironed Angelina Fiber. This helps the punch to cut all the fibers. Then I ran the punched fibers through a detailed embossing folder, again having extra card stock under the folder.

Thanks for showing this. I have some angelina fiber and need to play with it. This would be good to do.
