This week’s Mix it Up Monday challenge, hosted by Kathy, is to emboss it twice. There are a number of different ways to emboss a greeting card, using a Nestabilities die, embossing powder, a Score-Pal or Score-It board, using a brass stencil and embossing stylist, or using a Cuttlebug folder. To create this card, I chose to use a the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and my Score-pal. The paper is Tim Holtz Core’dinations Kraft Core, the ink was Memento Tuxedo Black, and the sentiment is a stamp I’ve had forever.
The stamp didn’t work very well on this textured paper, I’m not sure if it was the stamp itself, the paper, or a combination of both. After embossing the Swiss Dots, I used a fingernail file to expose the kraft core of the paper. The flower is one I made, and I plan to create a tutorial soon, is made with a heavy card stock, and Memento Ink in Cantaloupe.
Thank you for stopping by and remember, comments are always welcome.
