If I asked you if you would love to save time and frustration with this simple embossing tip, would you say “sign me up“? I sure would if it meant stress free embossing in my future!
But before we get to the video, let me show you today’s project.
The lovely embossed background is made with the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder. But when I first got it, I spent too much time trying to figure out what sandwich I needed to use for my Big Shot. (See all the sandwiches here).
So here’s what I figured out to help me with that. I thought you might like to know too…
Save Time and Frustration with this Simple Embossing Tip
Jo’s Card Making Tips
Once again, a few of these elements will be retiring soon (June 2nd or while supplies last). So let me tell you a bit about them in case you need to add them to your stash!
- Stamp and colour directly on patterned paper. I’m using the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP (retiring) with the Forever Blossoms stamps inked in Basic Gray ink. My Petal Pink and Old Olive Stampin Blends add touches of colour while still allowing the lighter Pool Party colour to show through.
- Layer punches and dies. My greeting is stamped then punched out with the Label My Fancy punch and layered onto one of the detailed dies from the Painted Labels set, also cropped in Pool Party cardstock.
- Add a pop of glitter for interest. The oh so pretty Petal Pink Metallic-edged ribbon (retiring) peeks out from under the die for contrast. And three sparkly Champagne Rhinestones add some bling.
