Who knew? You can dry and wet emboss at the same time!
I was so inspired by a treat bag I saw on the blog of the incredible Josee Smuck, that I had to try it right away. For this house-warming card, I used a turquoise embossing powder inside the Chevron embossing folder. Too cool! The end result has a bit of a distressed look, which I thought went well with the topsy-turvy house I stamped. (I almost always use clear mount stamps now; I’m a little rusty with the wood mounts I guess).
Wet and Dry Embossing Tutorial
- Ink up one side of your embossing folder with versamark ink.
- Place your paper in the folder (right side of paper to inked side of folder) and run it through the big shot.
- Coat paper with embossing powder, and heat set.
- Don’t forget to clean your embossing folder. I just sprayed it with Stampin’ Mist, and wiped with a rag.
