Easy Steps To Create An Embossed Metallic Card

by | July 8th, 2016 | Comments Off on Easy Steps To Create An Embossed Metallic Card

Hello, Crafty Peeps.   This week I want to share a technique I use to create an embossed metallic card base without foil. Combining dry embossing (using embossing folder only) with wet embossing (also called heat embossing) is a wonderful way to create interesting and unique embossed metallic cards.  This double embossing technique is fast, easy, and inexpensive.
