Embossing With Dies Technique - Stamping With Friends Blog Hop


I'm excited to be participating in this Stamping With Friends Blog Hop showcasing the "Dry Embossing with Dies" Technique. I'm sure you are just as excited as I am to see all of the different styles in this blog hop, so be sure to "hop" all the way around to see every demonstrator's blog post. 

A Little Patriotic Flair

I created this card for a friend that is retiring from the Air Force Reserves after 30 years. I used the WONDERFUL THOUGHTS Bundle for the sentiment, SILHOUETTE Dies for the embossed stars, and NESTED ESSENTIALS Dies for the shape. I also attached Blueberry Bushel (1/2") and Real Red (3/8") cardstock strips to a 3" x 5" piece of Basic White cardstock along with the star embossed 5/8" strip of Silver Foil specialty paper. 

This graphic shows the sandwich I used to dry emboss the little star die along the Silver Foil strip.

Here's one last look at my project.
