CCM #251 Embossing

Our challenge today and for the next two weeks at Crafty Cardmakers is Embossing. We want to see all your projects that feature embossing, wet, dry, folders, any embossing will do.

I have used a folder I have had for a very long time. It’s one of the Spellbinders double feature folders from their M-bossabilities range. On the one side is these birds and the other was like a background of branches.

Anyhow I started with diecutting a black square of card using a die from Julie Hickey. And then I embossed it with the folder. I used wax pastes from Pentart in turqoise and magenta, and around the scallop edge I used just a little Purple. I was, sadly a little heavy handed, and the paste has spread into the debossed areas as well.

I created the sentiment with a die from the same Julie Hickey set, which I have trimmed slightly to make it a little shorter. I used a small bird from a Clarity stamp and the sentiment is a premade small one from Martha Stewart. I gave it a bit of a curl with my scissors before sticking it down. The two white frames are also from the same Julie Hickey die set.
