Splitcoaststamper’s Clean and Simple Challenge today was to use “Red, Black and White” on a card or project. Since I’m still trying to get a little head start on some Christmas cards, this is what I created.
Dry embossing is one of my favorite ways to add some unique and fun interest to a card.
On this card I embossed the cardstock twice using two different embossing folders. The orientation of the two embossed designs is reversed. The “Snowflakes” pattern shows the “positive” or “out” embossing and the “Tall Pines” pattern shows the “negative” or “in” embossing.
This was so much fun that I wanted to try using a single embossing folder with both the “in” and the “out” embossing on a single design. Here is what the “Tall Pines” folder looks like with an “In and Out” combination.
This is one of the embossing folders from the “Pop Culture” collection.
This is from the “Just My Type” collection.
Here is Sissix’s “Branch Tree”.
Here is another pattern from the “Pop Culture” collection.
This one may be my favorite. It uses the “Seeing Spots” embossing folder.
And finally, here is the popular “Swiss Dots” embossing folder.
I had such a blast experimenting with some of my folders.
Thanks for dropping by today. Happy Crafting!
