I have created a little tutorial on how to make your embossed images pop off the page!



Things you will need:


Step One: Pick a die cut that you would like to cut out!


Step Two: Place your die cut in your chosen embossing folder!


You could stop here if you wanted to but your raised pattern is not as pronounced as it could be!
Step Three: Ink up your brayer and roll it all over your diecut and it will add ink to all the raised areas giving it a little more of a pop to your paper!


Voila! Now you can see the dimension in your paper! It's ready to put on your card!

Thanks for joining us in our Blog Hop, next you can skip on over to
