Did you know that some of our dies can be used for embossing? It took me a while too :). The stitched labels framelits has a wonderful die that gives a great background texture. To get this look you need to use the Embossing Mats (Be sure to purchase these before they retire – code 146327). This is the first card I made using this die and the embossing mats.
Now I’ll share a little secret with you – when I was putting this card together I accidentally put the adhesive on the wrong side (I had wanted the stitching recessed not raised!) and only noticed once I’d attached the Mossy Meadow piece to the Whisper White! Never mind – it’s original :). I then made another one and made sure I adhered it the right way up.
The Stitched Labels Framelits has a good range of shapes – 10 in total. The sentiment is stamped onto another of the dies.
I had so much fun making these cards I created another design:
I’ve paired the embossing die with the stitched effect with the Stitched Rectangle dies (which are carrying over to the Annual Catalogue). The DSP, ribbon and embellishments are from the recent Sale-A-Bration – I know I’m running a bit behind in sharing these – oops.
Here are some more samples that I created – I kind of got carried away with this design.
Balmy Blue and Grapefruit Grove
Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather
Lemon Lime Twist
Well I hope you’ve enjoyed see these samples and I hope you give this technique a go.
Until next time …
