Embossing With Jubilee Beauty Dies #GDP241

by Joanne James23. May 2020 17:00

Today I'm sharing a card that I made with my ladies online this week to demonstrate how you can get more mileage from your dies by using them to emboss too. My card also features the colours over at Global Design Project this week:

My online class next week features the Jubilee Beauty Dies and Birthday Jubilee stamp set and they were the perfect bundle to demonstrate this technique - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

In order to emboss with your dies, you need to use a different sandwich in your die cutting machine. I actually created two versions of the same card during my demonstration: one using the (now retired) Stampin' Up! Embossing Mats that were specifically designed for this purpose:

 

The other using a silicone mat in place of the thin blue rubber embossing mat - this is a great alternative and still available to purchase:

 

You get a slightly deeper impression using a silicone mat - if you look at the photo below, you can see the difference with the card on the left being with the embossing mat and the one on the right with the added tassle being with the silicone mat:

 

So which one do you prefer? One leaves a deeper impression than the other - do you have a preference? Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

This is a great technique. I tried this the other day using a foam mat. It sort of worked but I do need a proper silicone pad... on my (very, very long) wish list!! I love the simplicity of your design and the coordinating envelope.Vicky x
