When was the last time you played with embossing folders and your Cuttlebug? Yeah I know – I just don’t seem to do it enough, and each time I do it I remember how much I love it! So this week’s project I wanted to show how beautiful the embossing looks on the Lady Pattern Paper range.
So I created this quick card using a few strips of Lady Pattern Paper and some embossing.
Select 3 of your favourite Lady Pattern Papers and trim them to different widths. My strips measure from left to right 4cm, 1.5cm and 4.5cm. Adhere the strips of panel to a base panel.
Select an embossing folder with the design you want to use. Ink the top part of the embossing folder using a dye ink pad.
⇒ TIP: the ink will only catch onto the raised areas and will transfer onto the paper when embossed.
Position the strip panel inside the embossing folder and then emboss it by putting it through the Cuttlebug. The ink transfers to the paper with the embossed pattern and creates a beautiful effect.
I love how the embossing stands out on the Lady Pattern Paper designs – it creates a beautiful unified look on the embossed background although I used 3 different designs and colours of paper.
