Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
A while back my friend Marcia did this fabulous post that got me all fired up
to try the technique.
Warning! It's hard to stop at one!
The technique is simple. Use your 3D embossing folder to emboss a piece
of foil cardstock. Take a sanding block and lightly sand off some of the shine on
the raised design. You can cut the A2 card front sized foil in half and get a
second card. Here's a link to Jennifer McGuire's video showing the technique.
Using the other half of the embossing.
Had to try it with this fantastic blue foil.
So then I had to go shopping for some more 3D Embossing Folders so
I could share this technique with friends.
Then Nance came to play. You can see one of her cards here.
And I'm not through yet! More to come.
