Topic: Dry Embossing
In a swap of dry embossed papers I was sent 4 lovely Christmas trees. I decided it was time to use them and liked the first layout so much that I copied it for all the rest. I pulled out printed paper scraps from last year's 6 x 6 pads and used them to create a border on the left. Then I used the open scallop border punch doen the left edge of the tree, glued it on and trimmed the tree.
For this first one I used sticky-back clear rhinestones in a symetrical layout.
Theother green tree was decorated with sticky-back green pearls in various sized in an informal arrangement.
Two of the trees were on a bluish metallic finished cardstock with a linen texture. Very elegant. For the first, I trimmed the tree with red acrylic heart stickers.
Finally, I trimmed up the fourth tree with borders and sticker waste from gold peel-offs.
This is one of those embossing folders that I would like to have for myself. I've been relying on the generosity of others since it first came out!
