Embossing: Dry and Heat

Today’s card is made using dry and heat embossing.  Embossing is creating a raised layer.  It can be done in many ways with varied tools.  The most popular for dry embossing is an embossing folder with pre-designed images which is run through a machine that presses the design into the paper.  Many companies make these machines, including the Cricut® Cuttlebug™, Sizzix® Big Shot, We R Memory Keepers® Evolution Advance and more.  Most can also be used with dies to cut out images and designs.  For heat embossing, embossing powder is used with a heat gun.  Below is a card which displays both dry and heat embossing.  The word, “LOVE” on the card has been heat embossed with a light purple embossing powder.  The purple background has been dry embossed with a Cricut® Cuttlebug™ embossing folder called, “Smitten” by Anna Griffin®.  Take a peek at my YouTube video below showing how this card was made.
