One of the techniques from Altenew’s Easy Die cutting class is using dies to dry emboss. Now…I love embossing… embossing folders and heat embossing primarily. This is my first attempt at dry embossing without an embossing folder. I needed a masculine birthday card foe a friend and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try. Dey embossing.
I started off using Altenew’s Halftone Cover Die and ran it though my die cutting machine using an embossing mat.
I cut the panel down to approximately 3.75 5 inches and focused on my sentiment. I grabbed Altenew’s Mega Happy die and ran it through my die cutting machine 3 times. I cut out one ‘Happy’ in a shimmer green colour of Bazzill cardstock, then 2 more ‘Happy’ s from Simon Says Stamp’ White cardstock.
I adhered the ‘Happy’ on a slight diagonal on the dry embossed panel. I added the birthday strip just below that and then added to a panel of Simon Says Stamp’s Cardstock in., measuring 4×5.25 inches.
I added everything to a white card base measuring 4.25×5.5 inches. I used the dots Stamps from Altenew’s Layered Cupcake stamp set to decorate the envelope and Done!
