So it's embossing this week at Less is More on a one layer card (OLC). Now I actually really like embossing, dry or heat, I love my Bug and what it can do with embossing folders. However what I don't like is that I can't emboss directly onto a card base on the size of card I prefer to use, 6x6 square. So I have been rather frustrated with the attempts to do what I had in my mind with this weeks challenge.
Does anyone know how to get a standard Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss half a card (6x6) without leaving an edge from the folder? I would be so grateful if anyone could give some advice.
I still managed to produce a few cards none of them stunning like the ones I have already looked at on the blog, but still serviceable cards that will go to someone eventually.
They are all a combination of dry and heat embossing, with varying degrees of success. I am out of practice with heat embossing (haven't done any for ages) so had a few little mishaps - didn't get all the powder to heat and sometimes the card warped.
Heigh ho, I've tried and that's what matters. Still wish though that I could do what you others ladies do, and produce a card that just makes you go Wow! Maybe next week I will do quality rather than quantity ;-)
These are the ones where I was trying to emboss directly onto the card blank with my folders - I think you can see where it hasn't worked.
Various sentiment stamps, embossing powders and Cuttlebug embossing folders. I used a very old brass stencil for the final card. Boy was I into dry embossing about 5 years ago, every card I produced had some element of embossing on it! How times change!
