Hi! I've been a bit obsessive lately with PTI's Make It Monday Challenge to partially emboss/deboss. I've made a bunch more stuff but will split them into separate posts just so it'll be easier to read.
My first project was posted here and actually got a shout out on PTI's sidebar! That was fun and actually made all the work and attempts worth it. But since then I've been thinking of ways to make it easier to come up with the same results. I'm a little weary of placing a metal die on top of an impression plate to emboss. I tried it very gently and it left slight scratches on the back side of my die and I'm afraid it would smash down my impression plate so I'll take the more conservative route.
I like the idea of creating a frame as found in this Splitcoast Stampers tutorial on double embossing. For my first card I must have cut up 2 cereal boxes and some corrugated cardboard too. But that was tough! But because I'm a messy kind of crafter I still have lots of stuff from previous projects lying around and I saw my fun foam. And I had this idea to use fun foam for my frame! It's a lot easier to cut and a lot easier to roll through my Big Shot. It's not perfect but passable and I had to still keep a layer of cardboard.
Thanks for reading!
