One of my favourite things is embossing – blind embossing specifically with embossing folders. I think mostly because of the ease of doing that type of embossing and the amazing effects one can achieve. Lately, my favourite embossing folder is this Kaisercraft metal plate. Today I am dressing it up using my StazOn inks for a gorgeous metallic look.
Step 1 – Adhere some metal tape to a piece of scrap cardstock.
step 2 – Place the cardstock piece inside the embossing folder and roll through your embossing machine.
step 3 – To add colour, lightly swipe your ink pads across the embossed surface. Start with black StazOn and leave it to dry. Then add a layer of orange StazOn ink and blend it using a soft cloth. Leave the ink to dry and then add Brown StazOn ink to finish it off. Add another layer of grey StazOn ink to define the embossed details.
Stamp a sentiment onto white cardstock and adhere it to the front of your embossed panel. Adhere to a folded card and finish off with diamante.
Have you seen the huge selection of embossing folders from Kaisercraft available through The Wholesaler?
Amazing how a few ink strokes can change the look of embossing and create something truly unique.
