Topic: Dry Embossing
I saw this idea on a blog somewhere a long time ago and sketched it to try later. Well, what do you know? Later is here!
The plan starts with a couple of large heart punches or diecuts. I had neither but I did have an old Coluzzle with a heart shape. Yep, I can use that!
For the lady I cut hearts out of pink and salmon shimmer cardstock and ran both through the Cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder. I used a round punch to open up the neckline, added three tiny brads for buttons and a paper rose for a corasge.
The man is made with white and black shimmer cardstocks. The black is embossed with the twill folder and then cut halfway down the center. This allowed me to fold back the lapels. I tied a knot in a folded black 1/8" ribbon and then attached it to the white heart. The black heart is then layered over top of it.
With a black border, the background is metallic silver run through the hearts embossing folder.
This would make a good anniversary or valentine card, but it is actually going out in a swap.
