Subtle Dry Embossing

by Clare Prezzia July 20, 2018 9 Comments

One of my favorite things about card making is all the different ways you can add little details to a single project. A particular technique I love to use is dry embossing with dies, and the new Marquee Frame Fancy Die works so well for this!

For my card today, I started out by stamping some foliage from Peonies in Versamark on Bristol cardstock and then heat embossing with gold powder. After the images were heat set, I colored them in, using Pink, Purple and a orange combination of Strawberry and Dandelion for the flower, and then Leaf and Dark Teal for the leaves.

I then die-cut everything and set it aside to dry. While that was drying, I took the Marquee Frame Fancy Die and dry embossed it into my card panel. It's hard to tell in the main photo, but it is beautifully apparent in real life.

I then heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set in white on some purple layering paper, trimmed it out, and adhered it to the dry embossed card base.

I then adhered the flowers to the card base and topped it off with some pearls. That finishes off the card!

I love how ornate this die is - you can use it to make a powerful statement, like Libby's card HERE, or for intricate, more subtle details, like today's card.

Thanks so much for stopping in today and God bless!

Beautiful Clare, the dry embossing is good to see on the second picture and gives the card a amount of elegancy together with your gorgeous flower. Thanks for showing and have a nice weekend.
