Partial Embossing

Partial Embossing


Hey there, Terri here! Today I am sharing a Christmas Card featureing a Partial Embossing technique. Let's take a closer look.


I started of by White heat embossing my chosen sentiment onto an A2 piece of dark green cardstock. I use a White Embossing Powder and embossed at the bottom of my cardstock.



Next is where the Partial Embossing happens. I used the Buffalo Plaid 3D Embossing Folder to achieve this. I added the Green cardstock to the embossing folder leaving the heat embossed sentiment hanging out atthe bottom. I then place the folder in between my die cutting plates making sure that the top plate stops short of the bottom of the embossing folder, this means that when you run it through your machine, you don't end up with a harsh line where the embossing ends, instead it fades out. There only needs to be around a centimeter between the bottom of the top plate and the bottom of the embossing folder. I added some white and bronze inky spaltters and set it aside to dry.



I stamp the Cardinal using the Seasons Tweetings Stamp set. I used inks from the Red Cosmos Fresh Dye Inks and Obsidian Black. I stamped a branch using Mocha Ink from the Coffee Break Ink Set and 3 lots of berries using Ruby Red Ink. I die cut all of the images using the Seasons Tweetings Die Set.



I added the embossed panel to a white A2 card black using a combination of double sided tape and tacky glue for a strong hold. I the added the branch and berries with small foam pads before adding the Cardinal. To finish I added some glitter glue to the branch and berries.
