Faux Letterpress Technique - Dry and Heat Embossing

My second blog post today with my papermilldirect DT card.  Embossing is the theme this week and I have used both dry and heat embossing on this faux letterpress card.

Materials I used:
  • Papermilldirect Ivory linen, post box red and navy card
  • Crafter's Companion embossing folder
  • Versamark embossing ink pad
  • Oak House Studio red embossing powder
  • Brayer
  • Dies - hearts Sizzix, Cherry Lynne border, Die-namics fishtail flags
  • Stamp - Stampers Anonymous simple sentiments

I matted a piece of navy card to the front of an ivory card blank and layered the faux letterpress background on top, added a die cut strip, two embossed hearts and a sentiment to finish the card.

Try different embossing folders and try inking the opposite side of the folder for a completely different look.
