This week’s technique uses something you probably already have – embossing powder. (If you are like me, you have a lot of it.) When I first started stamping many, many years ago, it seems like I embossed everything but I haven’t used it as frequently on my recent projects.
|I wanted a partial circle cut so I offset the circle die.|
After cutting the circle from the lower right corner of the card I decided to use an embossing folder on the velvet to add some texture. I used an embossing folder from the “Woven” set of the Next Generation Embossing Folders by We R Memory Keepers. I LOVE using these embossing folders on velvet, especially the dark colors. You can do this step in either order but by doing the embossing folder step after the die cutting step, you maintain the deep impressions created by the embossing folder.
We have a great stock of embossing powders at Art ‘n Soul to include some beautiful glittery powders from Wow that will be great on your holiday cards. While you are there, be sure to check out our velvet papers too. I do hope you will give this technique a try and that you will share your results with us.
