Brutus Monroe: Unisex multi-embossed card and tag

 Hey there, I hope you have had a great week so far. The weekend is here so I hope you’re finding some time to craft! Following on from this week’s blog hop, I wanted to create another project using embossing to inspire you all. This time I used the beautiful Penny embossing powder which is a lovely copper colour. It pairs amazingly well with the lovely soft hue of Lunchbag cardstock. Lunchbag cardstock has soon become my favourite kraft card!! These two colours were perfect for creating a unisex multi-embossed card and tag. 

*For supplies featured in this post, please refer to the links at the end of the post.

Unisex multi-embossed Card and tag Process Overview

Apply clear embossing ink to one side of an embossing folder. Place a card panel inside and run this through your die cutting machine with an embossing sandwich. Refer to your machine for the required plates. Remove from the folder and cover in embossing power – use a brush to remove any stray powder. Heat side this. 

Cover a die-cut circle in embossing ink and heat set in matching embossing powder. Repeat 2-3 times for a smooth finish. Stamp a sentiment over the top and cover with contrasting coloured embossing powder.  Heat set this with short sharp blasts – you don’t want to overheat the first embossing powder colour. Mat this onto a white circle and foam mount onto the card panel. To finish foam mount the whole panel onto a matching cardbase with a 1/4″ border. 

For the tag, repeat the same process but use the other side of the embossing folder. Add a heat embossed vellum sentiment, and finish off with a piece of twine.
