Simple Dry Embossing Hack with WOW Factor!

by Laurie Willison

Hey there, crafty friends! It's Laurie here today with 3 projects using using Altenew's new Embossing Folders.  If you haven't seen these new AMAZING embossing folders, you will definitely want to check them out. These folders create perfectly detailed embossing and debossing details for your cards. This first project showcases the new Mega Hello…and it's my favorite!

Altenew MegaHello3 scaledI adore white space along with a good quick and simple card. You can't get more quick and simple then this. First, I used the debossing folder on a white card base.  The depth of the debossing without ripping the paper is amazing!

Quick and Easy Card with Simple Dry Embossing TechniqueThis folder has lots of beautiful detailed blooms and leaves. I wanted to let the embossed detail show so I only added a tiny bit of black ink mist and shimmer on the card panel.

Altenew BeautifulBergeniaFolder2 scaledI used a small piece of patterned paper from the Enjoy the Ride Paper Pack and then used the Waterbrush Hello Die cut in black fun foam to finish the card.

Altenew FlowersandLeavesEmbossingFolder3 scaledI used the Flowers and Leaves Embossing Folder on the lower half of this card front. It was very easy to do by just running the embossing folder section through your machine, keeping the rest of the card front clean and flat.

Altenew FlowersandLeavesEmbossingFolder1 scaledI hope you have enjoyed my embossed projects today.  The possibilities are endless with these folders because that perfect embossing will always shine through.  Thanks so much for coming by today!  Hope you have a great day!
