Topic: Dry Embossing
After watching an episode of "Scrapbook Soup" on public television on using embossing folders and inkpads to make letterpress backgrounds I decided to try a variety of enhancements to make cards.
This is the second of seven different embossing folders I played with.
For this one I used was the hearts folder. I smeared the barn door 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. Once through the Cuttlebug and I hit it with the heat gun to dry it.
I scallop punched the top edge, stamped some unreadable script over the surface with aged mahogony Distress ink and applied Stickles to random hearts.
I stamped the same script onto some red paper to match the card base. Then I punched a heart from it and applied it on the surface of the card. A prestamped sentiment was trimmed and then I smudged ink on the edges before attaching it.
As a finishing touch I placed a single red rhinestone in the center of the 'o' on the sentiment.
