Dry Embossing With Die Cuts + Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello! Today’s video shares yet another way to stretch your dies… to dry emboss with die cuts. I think you will love this technique. This post is also part of the Essentials by Ellen Winter 2015 Release Blog Hop … and I have a fun giveaway.

I honestly think dies are the most versatile tool a crafter can have. Here, I show how to dry emboss with die cuts. Check out those backgrounds…

For this technique, I really like to use Essentials by Ellen Magentic Paper because it is thick, durable and die cuts easily. I die cut several of the new Bold Flowers and leaves to dry emboss these backgrounds.

Embossing with the thick die cuts is simple. Between your die cutting machine plates, I position a few pieces of cardstock shim, an embossing mat (you can also try felt), cardstock and thick die cuts. I then run this through my die cut machine as I would an embossing folder. The thick die cuts press into the paper… leaving a lovely impression.

I really think the new “you are my favorite” sentiment is a new favorite of mine and the perfect greeting on these cards. I also added silver-embossed heart die cuts and gemstones.

I hope you will give this technique a try. It is one of those that makes your jaw drop. 🙂
