Embossing at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's time for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week we would like to see some embossing on your card - heat embossing or dry embossing or even both!

Autumn is approaching so I've made an Autumn themed card, with kraft card dry-embossed with a woodgrain folder and then a brown inkpad wiped over the surface. This gives a messier, more natural look than inking the folder for a faux letterpress effect.

The two leaves are stamped with a pair of double sided stamps which I got from an American company called Just For Fun - one side is solid, and I stamped that with a Kaleidacolour Autumn leak inkpad, and the other side of the stamp has the veins. I used a stamp positioner to place the veins accurately on the leaves, and stamps and heat-embossed them in gold.

I made a border using some Rubberstamp Tapestry (I think they are now called Card-io) stamps and the Kaleidacolour pad again.

  2. Love your woodgrain and those tiny leaves in the panels. Well done with the placement of the veins on the large leaves, it looks a tricky thing to do well. :)

  3. Great masculine card, Jane. I love the woodgrain panel - it looks so realistic. xx
