Dry Embossing over Winter Woods Stamped Image

Can you tell that I’ve used dry embossing on three layers, on this simple card made with the Winter Woods Stamp Set?

This card was CASE’d from a fellow crafter on Pinterest and yet I did play around with changing things up a bit for fun. In the end, it’s pretty much exactly like the original design with a few minor changes to the embellishment. The original card was created by Cindy over at Heart’s Delight Cards. I love this design and so I recreated it as a Make n’ Take for my September team gathering. This card is so versatile that I also made a bunch extra for my own personal use and to give to my daughter to use as well.

I already gave some of these cards away but here’s what I got left of my pile of cards:

So… on to a few details about this card in case you’d like to recreate it too!

The top focal layer was stamped first and then dry embossed with the Subtle embossing folder. The Soft Suede focal backing was dry embossed with the same folder.

I experimented with simplifying this card a bit and skipping the dry embossing on either or both of these two pieces, but in the end that subtle texture on those two layer was really crucial to the design! The third layer where dry embossing was used is the background layer, the piece attached to the card base. All these layers create texture and interest to this card that make it just beautiful! Thank you Cindy for this awesome design!

The one small element that I changed on this card was the button and trim. I used the True Gentleman Buttons and the Copper Trim.

In the version above I used a bit of the Copper Trim threaded through the button holes and then tied a knot. I love this trim both for the color and for the fact that you can shape it and stretch it too. I’ve pulled apart the fibers of the trim here, which adds a fun touch of texture and subtle shine. I also think that the fibers mirror the delicate lines of the tree images, making it a perfect match for this design.

So I created two versions of this card, one with Whisper White and the other with Very Vanilla cardstock. Here is the card done using Very Vanilla:

For the button on this second version, linen thread was used instead of the copper trim. For both cards I’ve used Stampin’ Dimensionals in behind the Soft Suede layer.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this card. There are multiple layers but it was super simple to create.

    I love the card and seeing the different colors. I had not noticed the Subtle Embossing folder in the catalog before seeing your card. It is now on my list. Thank you for sharing and for the video.

      Thanks for leaving a comment Denita. I’m glad you enjoyed seeing this project. That Subtle Embossing Folder is definitely easy to overlook in the catalog. It’s just too hard to see it well. I just love it!!! Thanks again for commenting and have a great day!
