Fancy Post Dry Embossing

Hi everyone. Vera here and I am back today with a fun dry embossing technique tip.

First, let's see the card, shall we?

Stamp: SP & Company For Every Woman set
Scrap paper
Grayish brown cardstock
Impression plate or embossing folder
Brown ink cube

For this card, I am hoping to get a balance of softness and strength. The flower is the softness part of course and for the panel I was aiming for a leather look for contrast to the flower softness. I cut a panel slightly smaller & shorter than the card base. Then I embossed it with the impression plate or you can also use any embossing folder. After you finish embossing the panel, gently rub the raised area with ink cube by going back and forth slowly. You can use ink pad, but I feel like I have more control of where the ink goes using the small ink cube.

Don't worry if the ink gets to the debossed (hmm... is that a word? I am talking about the are non-raised area) as it will just add to  the grungy, rough leather look. 

Once you're satisfied with the look of the panel, adhere it to card. Add a strip of patterned paper, then stamp the flower, color, fussy cut it (or use the coordinating SVG file), and adhere to card with pop-dots. Then stamp sentiment and you are done!

That's it for my tidbits for today. Hope you enjoy it and thank you so much for stopping by here. Cheers....
