The Sisterhood of Crafters: Embossing –Heat or Dry

I haven’t played along with The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge in awhile so their challenge to include either heat or dry embossing interested me. It interested me enough to pull out the SSS Floral Field 3D embossing folder and emboss it on a piece of foil cardstock, lightly sand the raised image, cut it apart for my Bonnie sentiment strip which was popped up and added a few blue sequins to finish off this card. I thought that my sentiment strip needed some shine so I added glossy accents but now I’m wondering if I should have used versamark and clear embossing powder to add the shine. Any suggestions??

Thanks for stopping in for a peek. It was a lovely day of sunshine and lower humidity so it was a two walk day!

  2. Sanding the image did a wonderful job of adding life and texture. Not sure which would be the best gloss for the strip. Maybe layering it with dove tails would add interest and length.

    1. Thanks for your lovely comments. I enjoy playing along with The Sisterhood of Crafters challenges. Thanks for all you do.

  3. This is a wonderful card with lots of shine and details. Either way to add shine to your sentiment strip works. I like t to be glossy accents. It’s generally less precise, which adds a bit of softness. That sounds weird, but I hope you understand what I mean.
