I am popping in with another fun card share today.
Recently I fell in love with the look with the letter press/dry embossed background. I love the ease and design by using a stamp/die. The following card is a good example.
Of course, back in the day (circa 2009) when I started stamping, using dry embossing folders was all the rage! Remember those days? I was constantly on the look out in collecting every embossing folders (Cuttlebug's especially) that came in my way. These days? I still have them, but I have now used them way less and shifted my love in using dies for the dry-embossing.

Today's card was created with Altenew's Extra Special.
With the dry-emboss mat, such as Tan Embossing Mat, creating a letter press look can not be easier.
The order of my Cuttlebug plates (from bottom to top): C plate, B plate, Tan Embossing Mat, stamped images on paper (with paper facing you and die facing down), Matching Die and B plate.
I did all the stamping before I run and die and embossing mat. I also kept in mind about how I would run through the die cut machine and came up with this seemingly complex design.
We card-makers love this type of subtlety, isn't it?
I hope that you find my post helping and inspiring.
