The technique that attracted me to cardmaking was the dry embossing technique way back when. I had received an invitation to a baby shower and the card used the dry embossing technique. That was the hook that got me interested in card making. And after all these years, we revisited the technique. Back then we used a light table to reflect the lines to do the dry embossing within the lines of the image.
At a recent virtual class, I assigned some “homework” to my stampers to make a card using a technique that we had used in one of the classes. Elaine chose the dry embossing technique for her homework and she used Vellum card stock for the technique.
She used the Blessings of Home for her card. Isn’t it lovely? The products she used on her card are:
- Fresh Freesia, Blackberry Bliss and Basic White card stock
- Heart & Home DSP
- Memento Black ink
- Foam Pad (Stampin’ Pierce Mat)
- Versamarker, White Embossing Powder
- Heat Tool
To achieve the look of the white flowers, stamp the image on the Vellum card stock. Turn it over to work on the back. Place it on a Stampin’ Pierce mat, cover the image with wax paper as it makes moving the Stylus easier. Make circling motions within the lines of the image. Continue on with the Stylus doing all or part of the flowers in your image.
Thank you, Elaine, for sending in your “homework assignment”!
