Hi ya, I’m finally back with new project – hand embossed snowflake card, just in time for Christmas. This embossed snowflake looks elegant and not expensive or hard to do, and it can be done without a die-cutting or embossing machine.
Here are a few items you need:
Metal or wooden embossing stylus
Lightbox (I made my light box by raising the glass cutting mat with a few books and put a small torch light underneath)
First of all, you need a snowflake stencil/template, i made my own by cutting the the snowflake die (donwload) on a piece of card stock.
Keep the diamond shape loose pieces and arrange them back accordingly, secure them with scotch tape.
Sprinkle some powder (if you don’t have powder, you can use flour) on the sticky side of the scotch tape, this is to get the stickiness off the scotch tape, when you emboss the paper later, it will not stick to your paper.
Place the template on a blank card, turn it over and put it on top of a light box in order to see the outline of the template through the paper.
Once you have the template and paper line up, apply pressure to the paper and trace the outline of the snowflake. Press hard enough with the stylus to make an indentation in the card. When you are finished, flip your card over and you will see a nice embossed snowflake on your card!
Simple huh? Till next time, happy crafting! x
