Change of subject...embossing

Some of you clever cats out there
might already have done this
but I never had untill I saw it
on create and craft.

Cut out whatever you want as a topper wether it be decoupage, letters or even pyramage ( ends up looking like a pillow! )

Turn over onto the wrong side and place on a foam mat then with a large embossing tool ( I haven't got one so I used the end of a small one ) gently rub all over untill the image curls up. Photo's added will hopefully explain what I am talking about.

Place small foam pads where needed then place your image , or build your decoupage ,or pyramage onto your card or topper.

It is rather fiddly but well worth the effort.

My apologies to those of you who know this tip . happy crafting.


  1. Hi Barbara

    A lovely card and great tip
    Even if people do know how to do this I think its worth having a reminder of these things
    Love the paper you have used for the name

  2. The letters are on the cute companion cd.
