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.
Adhere some metal tape to a piece of scrap cardstock.
Place the cardstock piece inside the embossing folder and roll through your embossing machine.
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.
