I recently created an expected card. I meant to do the regular dry-embossing....I ended doing de-boss instead. This is what it is "supposed to" look like after running the 3D Embossing Folder through the die cut machine.
This card was dry-embossed on white card stock
Let me refresh your memory about debossing.
Debossing is the opposite of embossing as you are creating an indent in the material you are using. A metal die is stamped onto the front of the material you are using causing depressions that leave a (debossed) imprint of the image on your paper, card stock (or other chosen material)
You can definitely de-boss first and ink up the images. But this was not what I did here.
I swiped the ink pad across the 3 D Embossing Folder and THEN dry-embossed it.
You can add details by re-deboss it or add colors after running it through the die-cut machine. The main thing is you need to experiment and have fun with your supplies.
Enjoying the process is the key to happy crafting. Often times, this will result a project or two that make you even happier.
This was my experience with this project. I was slightly upset when I did the de-bossing by accident, but in the end, I am truly happy with the result and was glad that I didn't give up.
Thanks for stopping by!
Stunning cards Virginia. It's a fabulous folder - looks perfect both ways.
The embossing folder is incredible! Great colors!!!!!!!!!!
OMG! Those cards are fantastic.
Beautiful embossing folder design, embossed and debossed! Love the cards you created! I have had to test a folder with a scrap to see which way I preferred...
These are very pretty! It’s a gorgeous embossing folder
And I like both versions!💗💗
Great look to both sides of the folder. Nice tips for adding color.
Both versions or your card are gorgeous! I like them equally well. Either way you have a winner!
