{Tue} Technique: Dry Embossing on Patterned Paper

Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

Club Scrap has a Technique Challenge & Linky Party every month...and October's technique is to use embossing folders (click HERE to check it and link your projects).
Pam, the host, has lots of great techniques to show you!

Here's my card, using an embossing folder on patterned paper, from my Literature Club Scrap Deluxe Kit:

I embossed the printed paper (Cuttlebug folder) and adhered 2 different ribbons on, before adhering it to the card base.
I trimmed a tag and stamped it in orange, using Literature Jumbo unmounted stamps.
I die cut leaves (Spellbinders), watercolored them with gel stick + water and adhered them on tag.
I stamped sentiment (Literature Greeting unmounted stamps), cut it out, distressed the edges and adhered it on leaves.
Finally, I added a bow (Literature Fibers) on tag.

And, of course, it's super hard to see in the photo, but here's a close-up...

Hum...still hard to see? You'll just have to believe me that I embossed that patterned paper! =)
