Thanks so much for stopping in. Today, I have a card for the Double Embossing (heat and dry) Challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs.
My favorite technique has always been heat-embossing. I find it adds that extra touch that gives a more professional finish to my cards. I heat-embossed the sentiment (ODBD - Little Things - #D298) on my card. I used a matching moss green pigment (ColorBox) and clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder (Ranger). I highly recommend using the super fine powders for small lettering like on this stamp. You will get a much better result.
For the dry embossing, I used a honeycomb embossing folder (the Paper Studio). The moss green and soft orange cardstock (The Home Spun Stack DCWC) came already embossed with lines. I embossed over that giving a more complex look to my top panel. I added a small strip of the green under the top panels balance to the card.
I die-cut the circles (Picot Edge Circles-Spellbinders), then heat-embossed the sentiment on one and added a few green gems.
There are still a few days left before the deadline if you want to join in the fun. Here's the link to the rules: http://www.ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.com/2015/10/odbdslc260-double-embossing-heat-and-dry.html
