Christmas will be here before we know it and I for one am prepared to be prepared this year! I decided to go with understated cards this year, unique to the folks that will be receiving them.
Supplies needed to create your own embossed note cards:
- Washi Tape
- Embossing Ink (Clear)
- Stamp Set (Scrappy Cat Cottage Style Vintage)
- Embossing Powders
- Core’dinations Plain Cards
- Heat Tool
I wanted to try my hand at embossing, the process that creates that amazing raised texture on expensive cards. I didn’t want to use a huge range of colors, just understated white on white, gold on white and some high contrast white on navy for a different look. Each card is unique, but each has that really cool texture you just can’t help but touch.
First things first, you need embossing ink. I used clear so that the color of my embossing powders could really shine and the white on white wouldn’t have any other hues in the mix. Simply dab the stamp gently, making sure to cover the entire surface of the stamp with ink.
Gently (gently!) place the stamp on the card without wiggling!Google+
