Faux embossing with Summer Shadows dies – video tutorial


If you read yesterday’s post, then you’ll have seen the first card I made with the Summer Shadows dies (along with other Sale-A-Bration products). Here’s the second card I made…

I used the dies for a technique that is known as ‘Faux Embossing’ because when you add die cuts to a card layer with matching card it gives the impression that your card layer has been dry embossed. You can see this in action in my video tutorial, just click on the image below…

Here’s the card I made in the video with Petal Pink card…

And here’s the original Soft Sea Foam one alongside the Petal Pink version…

Using the adhesive sheets really did make adding the die cuts so much easier, once I’d got the backing paper off. Lol.
