My Artisan Design Team Partial Embossing Tip was shared a few weeks back and proved quite popular.
This is a technique that I’d not done for many years and really wanted to share. A technique that can be achieved with a variety of Embossing Folders to achieve a different look every time.
The idea is to create a blank cardstock aperture, within the middle of an Embossed area. Here I used the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder and the Oval Die from Framed Florets to create this cute card.
Depending upon the thickness of your cardstock, will depend on the number of layers you’ll need to match up and cut. Since our Dies will not cut really thick cardstock, it is necessary to layer up thinner layers to create the thickness you need. This can be trial and error to achieve the right thickness for your Partial Embossing.
Once you have the right thickness, you want to temporarily tape this to the outside of your Embossing Folder. Where the cardstock sits, is where the pressure will be applied. Where the pressure is applied, is where the Embossed pattern will show. Creating a blank aperture will allow for direct stamping and a softer edge to your aperture.
Cardboard shims can be saved and used repeatedly once made and teamed up with many a Stamp Set.
A Baby card was created using my Partial Embossed panel and the Elephant Parade Bundle, which you can see over on my Youtube Channel.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this tip that I shared and that you’ll give it a go.
