The Virtues of Debossing Cover Dies

Hello friends!
I am popping in with my last take with Playful Plumeria Stamp and Die Bundle.
(All products are listed at the end of this post with the affiliate links,. Thank you)
I simply love the possibilities that this set has to offer...
Today's card is 100% Stamped.
your beauty
I took out all my favorite inks and started stamping away.

 In order to keep stamped image a standout., I kept the embellishment to a minimum.

 However, I would still like to add subtle details!
πŸ’‘ What can be better ways than to add textures with a cover die!?
The Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die came to the rescue!
Cover dies like these are great addition to have in your stash.
Yes, they are not cheap....which is why we "need to talk about it"

πŸŽ€The virtue of debossing cover dies: πŸŽ€

1. details and textures can be easily incorporated into your design
2. use part of the cover die and die cut them with assorted shapes (heart, circle...etc)
3. stamp before or after debossing
4. color it with any of your favorite media (color pencils, watercolor, copics.... etc)
5. you can create matching set of cards easily. Need a set of cards in a jiffy? Deboss all of them and add an image or two and sentiment....done!
6. feel challenged with color card stock or pattern paper? Deboss them!
7. add doodles on them! See those dotted lines? You can use a fine pen and trace all the lines!
8. stitch it! Use a small fine needle and stitch the pattern. It's time-consuming, but well worth the effort if this is your thing. (be sure to use super study card stock and fine needles)

Love how you stamped the Plumeria in the soft colors along with the dottedswirls of the cover die. Thanks for listing the virtues of cover dies. I actually have the Dotted Swirls die, but I am not using it to it's full potential! I will be trying some of yiur suggestions.

Great post, Virginia! I agree cover dies are very pricey; however, they often create a finishing touch. Your card is a great example of a finishing touch, like it very much!

LOVE this plumeria set and your really know how to put a card together with it. As you know, dry embossing is my jam so this card is right up my alley.

Beautiful colors and thanks for listing all the virtues of debossing with a cover plate.

The cover die really does add a lot to the card. I've got the stamp set but haven't play yet. Maybe I need that die too.
