Using embossing paste and dry embossing with a folder is insanely easy and the effect is awesome!
Today we have this colorful card from Ricky and he is bringing that with some drama with a quick and easy way to use embossing paste and dry embossing together to add a ton of impact with one step. Let’s get right into it!
Ricky started by stamping the image from our Tangerine Trip onto watercolor card stock.
He lightly sprayed it with water and then used a selection of Color Fuse Inks from Sets #2. #5, #8 and #10 to pain in the images. He started with his leaves, using both the different shades of this gorgeous, fresh green AND beautiful watercolor looks to create that ombre look.
Then he went in with his hot pinks and punchy oranges to create even more gradient shading on his flowers.
He finished off his three blossoms with some delicious teals and then cut the flowers out with our coordinating die.
For his greeting, Ricky stamped his sentiment in Versamark onto a scrap of black card stock and heat embossed it with white powder. He cut that down into a close rectangle and then set that aside with his flower die cut.
For that background, Ricky used one of his favorite embossing folders to impress a design onto a piece of black card stock. He then (and the photo was eaten by a computer gremlin!) he applied some bright green embossing paste to the RAISED side of the embossed card stock. PRO TIP: Ricky says you can use any kind of paste you like – glitter, crackle, etc. Just make sure it dries thoroughly before finishing off the card.
To finish it off, Ricky trimmed his embossed black panel to card layer size and adhered it to his card front and added his beautifully painted flower die cut and greeting to the card with some foam adhesive for extra dimension. Just gorgeous!
