OCC - Days 9 & 10 - Textural Effects


On day 9 we were shown how to do some selective embossing using embossing folders and dies.  Basically you use the die to mask an area of the embossing folder so you get a framed area amongst the embossing that is flat.  It only works if your die has a solid back and not an open one.  I didn't have a frame die with a solid back so I just used an open one for the shape of the frame.  Inside the frame I place two smaller dies which did have solid backs.  Since I didn't have a flat frame where I can perhaps stamp a sentiment or an image I embossed one with little gingerbread man/woman dies.  Worked out beautifully.

The card was finished off with some washi tape and a little heart covered with glossy accents.

Thank you for joining me today.
