Topic: Dry Embossing
More letterpress with the Cuttlebug. This is the fourth of seven I made in this project series.For this card I used the leafy branch folder. I smeared the bundled sage Distress ink pad over the surface of the folder and misted it with water. I also misted a piece of white cardstock and inserted it in the folder. After running through the Cuttlebug I hit it with the heat gun to dry it.
I used the bundled sage Distress marker to create drop shadows under the leaves. Then I attached a pre-stamped sentiment to it.
The hummingbird is printed on vellum. I ran the whole piece through the Xyron to apply adhesive to the whole back of it. Then it was placed on the leafy panel and both together were trimmed to size.
I hand drew in the eye on the bird and mounted the background to a sage green card base.
