Topic: Dry Embossing
I ran across a snippet of cardstock with license plates printed on it and thought it would be fun to combine it with an emobssing folder I have with an antique car. As I pulled out the embossing folder I remembered that I have a stamp similar to that. Imagine my surprise when I pulled it out and discovered they are exactly the same, even to the same size. HA!
I stamped the car on some brown cardstock and then embossed it with the folder. Cool - except the folder has such sharp edges that it kind of tears the edges of the image. I used a foam applicator and distress ink to recolor those areas.
I pulled out more printed cardstocks with distressed looks and combined strips to create a masculine backbround. A vertical strip also got a piece of twine knotted around it. The car image was banded and popped up on foam. I reversed the colors for a stamped sentiment and tied it to the twine before popping up on foam.
As a final step I added three square nailhead stickers on th lower left.
I had enough matrials to create two identical cards at the same time.
