CTC319 – Embossing Technique

Welcome to Sunday night and another CASEing the Catty Challenge. Doesn’t the week just fly by these days? Well we’ve had some lovely weather here the past few days so I have tried to make the most of it before we get the cold and wet days back soon. Well this week’s challenge is about a technique – Embossing. So you can pick any project in the new Annual catalogue that has some sort of embossing on it, whether it is an embossing folder, heat embossing, embossing paste, emboss resist, to case.

I decided to case the top right card in the image below, keeping some elements the same while switching some others, but the essence and feel of the card is similar.

Rather than a Soft Succulent card base, I started with a Basic White card base and then embossed a mat of Soft Succulent with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I was originally going to cut it into strips like the original, but decided to keep it as one piece. I cut out various pots and plants from the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP (some were fussy cut and some used the Perfect Plants Dies) and arranged these on the mat. I included the bow of twine on one of my pots and the sentiment was stamped onto the reverse side of the DSP and cut out with a stitched die (Rectangle Stitched Dies).

So I think you can see that I’ve used this card and elements of it as my inspiration. Next up on the hop is Kathryn with her creation. Keep hopping around to see all of the design team’s creations for this week’s challenge.

What sort of embossing are you going to use on your project? We’d love to see it. Please share it on our Facebook page.

Until next time, happy stamping
