Hello, it’s Gaylynn. Today, I am sharing wet and dry embossing techniques featuring stamping and Copic marker coloring. Mixing embossing on a card looks pretty, especially with a bit of gold shimmer.
Wet and dry embossing techniques work great together on a card. This chrysanthemum flower pops against the subtle background.
I made a quick video tutorial HERE showing the process for this project.
These are helpful tips for mixing wet and dry embossing techniques on a card. To begin, stamp, color and wet emboss (a/k/a/ heat emboss) the flower in gold on white cardstock. Also, stamp the sentiment in black. Next, fussy cut (cut out) the flower and die-cut or trim the sentiment. Then, dry emboss a background panel using an embossing folder with a die-cutting machine to press the 3D look into the paper. Also, to bring out the texture even more, add ink blending in two colors to coordinate with the flower colors. Next, trim or die-cut the dry embossed panel to fit the card base. Finally, adhere the background and pop up the flower and sentiment, to finish.
Here is another look.
