The Elegance of Dry Embossing

A heartfelt, handmade card is a treasure that can be cherished for years to come. It shows the recipient that you took the time and effort to create something special just for them, and that extra bit of love really shines through.

Today, we’re going to focus on a particular technique that can elevate your handmade cards to a whole new level: dry embossing. Let me show you what I made!

What is Dry Embossing?

Dry embossing is a technique for creating raised or recessed designs on paper or other materials. It’s a versatile and easy-to-use technique that can add a touch of elegance and dimension to your projects.

For this project, I used the Layered Florals 3D embossing folder. This folder is gorgeous! It’s easy to make a great impressions with it. Just place flat cardstock in this embossing folder, run it through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, and out comes cardstock with a bold textured design.

For our card, I used the embossing folder on vellum to create a beautiful floral design. Vellum is a translucent paper that is perfect for dry embossing because it shows the design in a subtle and elegant way.

Taking the time to create something beautiful by hand can be a wonderful form of self-care. It allows you to relax, de-stress, and express your creativity.  When you give a handmade card, you’re not just giving a gift, you’re giving a piece of yourself.

So why not give dry embossing a try? It’s a fun and easy technique that can add a touch of sophistication to your handmade cards. With a little practice, you’ll be creating beautiful embossed designs in no time. Happy Stamping!
