Hello and a very happy Diwali everyone.
With the increasing trend of clean and simple cards, I, Anirudh, DT member, bring to you all two easy and beautiful cards that feature the dry embossing technique.
So let's start!
Dry embossing with stencils gives a subtle look to any project. For this, use this sandwich and run it through your machine; from below upwards, clear plate - embossing plate - embossing pad - paper - stencil - clear plate.
You may need to add additional shims for deeper emboss looks.
I started with a white card panel and dry embossed using zig-zag stencil. Then I used the Diwali greetings stamp to do some no-line watercoloring of the diya image with zig markers and fussy cut it out. Then I simply attached that to a red shaped die-cut and that over the embossed panel. For the sentiment, I used Chinese Blue dye ink. Lastly, I added this to a white card base.
Take a look at the beautiful detail...
For this card, I used the Stars and Circles stencil to dry emboss a vellum panel. Then I blinged it up using some adhesive jewels and stars for some interest. Then using Imperial Red dye ink, I stamped the sentiment on scrap paper and cut and adhered it to the vellum panel. To finish the card, I added a happy diwali die cut and added the panel onto a red card base.
See how unique this effect is...
I hope you like this technique and give it a try.
See you soon and until then,
