Dry Embossing

Good Morning!
I've been looking through older blog posts over at Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine and found an interesting dry embossing technique here.  I've used my embossing folders on a lot of cards over the past few years, however I never thought to do this!

I started out using my spellbinders butterfly die.  I ran it through my big kick and then used a white gel pen to do the stenciling.

 Using my xyron, I attached 3 butterflies to another piece of patterned paper.
I ran that through my big kick to emboss it.

I used my liquid pearls to embellish the butterfly bodies.  I used my MS punch around the page on another piece of paper.  (Ignore the few mistakes, I just couldn't force myself to make Trouble get off my lap!)

I also tried using another embossing folder, although I didn't care for this card as much as the first one.


  1. Beautiful card. I will have to try this technique.

  2. Wow fab card Jen. So so elegant. Love it. TFS
